How to use the same BP DB-Tables for two Buddypress installations?!
Hi @ all!
I’m going to get very frustrated soon, thats why I’m searching for some help here!
I do have a Buddypress installation on WP Multisite basis. This a community for young Germans, who do a social year abroad. Now we’re going to plan a new “Alumni-Community” for our former volunteers. For that we want to use another WP-Single installation – of cause – with Buddypress. What we want is that the useres are able to login into both sites with just one username and password. So I found this solution:
I put this into the wp-config.php of the new installation and it works perfectly. Now I’m able to login into both sites, because it shares the user tables of WordPress. But we have to go further: It should also use the same XPROFILE table, because the user registers for his social service e.g. with “In which country: Albania; How long: 12 Months; …” – and the Alumni-Community should use the same information from the same table. E.g. “Was in: Albania; For: 12 Moths;” …
So is there a way to tell Buddypress to use a table with another prefix in the same database?! Something like:
If this is possible, the two communities could be synchron in users, user xprofile data, messages,… Right?!
I really, really hope that someone is able to help me. I’m going to get crazy with that!
Best and thanks!
