Installing BP into a multi-domain site
I run a presentation consulting business (www.betterpresenting.com) and host an annual conference, whose web pages are a subset of the main site. I have installed BuddyPress in order to create a community site for the conference. What I can’t figure out is how to manage the messaging. If I understand correctly (dubious assumption), posts become messages. But I post at betterpresenting.com about a great many things, not just ones that would be for the conference community. So I see competing issues:
1. If I were to keep the sites together, I would need to figure out how to create posts that are selectively included in community messages or excluded from them.
2. If I were to pull out the conference domain and manage it separately, I would need a separate install of WordPress and would then need to recreate my development environment. That would not be pleasant.
For the past decade, I have been comfortable managing multiple domains as subdomains, essentially being able to treat them all as one development experience. I would prefer to do that here, but don’t know how to solve problem No. 1.
Needless to say, I need some perspective and practical advice here. I would be grateful for any help I can get…
