How to Emulate http://blogs.zappos.com/ Using Buddypress?

  • Hi – I’m new to WPmu and BuddyPress, and was wondering how you guys would approach setting up Buddypress if you wanted to have an experience similar to what Zappos is doing here:

    http://blogs.zappos.com/

    As you can see, each section has a different header and covers a different aspect of the Zappos business. I like this approach, and I’d like to set this up using WPmu and BP.

    Conceptually, I’m not clear on WPmu’s blog hierarchy. For example, is the initial blog that is create a parent of others? Are all MU blogs created equal?

    The key is that I’d like the to aggregate all site activity from all the different sections (or child blogs) – which BP does out of the box.

    I don’t want to let just anyone create a blog, so the blog directory (e.g. http://testbp.org/blogs) will contain only 5 or 6 blogs. I also would them put them the header to serve as a primary way to navigate. The BP navigation would go under that.

    Is this a good approach?
