Confusion, Help please?

    Basically I have a multisite, One site acts as a hub with each other site linked to it.

    I would like each site linked to the hub to have an individual forum, however would like the hub to have access to each and display them. Im confused to whether i should use groups, sitewide or both?

    BuddyPress only works on one site in a WPMU install. bbPress might be more flexible with multi-site but I’m not sure. There is a plugin that will allow each site to have its own BuddyPress install but I think that would be problematic to maintain.

    Do you really need multi-site?

    Thanks for your reply, As far as this project goes yes, multisite is essential.

    Oh, I assumed buddypress worked across them all as it is network activated. I also thought bbpress worked with buddypress therefore also worked across the network.

    bbPress can be network activated so each subsite can create forums but I’m not sure if the site wide forums option in BuddyPress can be network activated.

    So if i use bbPress, in theory i could create a forum for each sub site then use something similar to the code you found to pull them into one page.

    i’d assume. Test it out. I don’t do MU very much but I think the bbPress attached to BP is not network compatible(you can’t network activate).
