Installing BP with existing theme
I have a limited amount of wordpress experience. I have an existing blog running on the latest version of wordpress, and would like to add BP as a section of that blog. I have a couple questions:
1) Can I just use the Buddy Press plug-in with my exising wordpress blog, and make the BP features (social network, forum, etc.) available as a section of my existing blog?
2) Assuming #1 is not possible, can I – create a subdirectory in my existing blog (the blog is installed in the root directory), install a new (additional) install of wordpress in that subdirectory, with a seperate MySql database from the main one, and run BP on that wordpress install. So, BP would be running in a subdirectory, on a completely seperate wordpress install and database.
Is there any reason this won’t work? And, is there any reason that I might not want to do this?
