    @jorries

    Okay I have installed buddypress, wpmu, bbpress latest version.

    I have bbpress and wpmu on my mainsite = mainsite.com

    I have forum = mainsite.com/forum

    I have bbpress members = mainsite.com/members

    Now I create blogs for mysef that I personally manager these blogs have a certain function they are for certain people I manage the blog for.

    I have 2 blogs (And will create more in future)

    - portal.mainsite.com ( central site where everything should come together )

    - site1.mainsite.com ( site for a user i maintain )

    Now my end result Im aiming at is like this:

    1) mainsite.com/members should not be available it should only be available from portal.mainsite.com

    2) mainsite.com/forum should not be available it should only be available from portal.mainsite.com/forum

    I want users to be able to signup from any blog (portal.mainsite.com, site1.mainsite.com) to register and comment on the blogs and post topics in the forum on portal.mainsite.com/forum

    To make it more complicated I would like to have 1 forum per blog ( 1 forum for site1.mainsite.com and 1 forum for portal.mainsite.com and 1 forum for each new blog that Ill be adding ) This forum should not be listed anywhere it should only be available in the blog itself.

    Currently I have :

    1) Installed wpmu latest + buddypress + bbpress (including integration)

    What would be the next step to acchive above results, please give me some advice on this, this seems reasonable complicated!

    Is this really that hard, that no one knows how to do this?

    If i only want to move the /members directory to start with, what would be the steps to do that? Thank you

    Hi jorrie, sorry to be the one to say this… but please do not create multiple topics about the same issue. I’ve read at least several topics with the same information from you.

    Create just one thread and “bump” it if no one responds.

    With regards to your actual issue, AFAIK what you’re asking for is currently not possible; if it is, it would require some elaborate rewrite rules.

    Hopefully a BP mod can answer your question more directly.

    Provided you have wildcard subdomains allowed in your installation, then yes this could be possible with some modification to both BP and your .htaccess rules. Similar to how http://support.wordpress.com/ works with the forum as a subdomain in addition to user blogs being subdomains too.

    Anyone?

    this IS a support forum isent’t it?

    Or are my questions that “out of the box”

    Sorry was hoping to find some answers here since no where else there is good support for this ( irc channel is also starved )

    I need to do something similar. I have two domains (sunysb.net and sbulife.com) where sunysb.net is the domain I use for buddypress, and sbulife.com redirects to it. Normally, I would park sbulife.com on sunysb.net and the end user wouldn’t know the difference, but with the subdomain rewrite rules, it really screws up wordpress mu.

    The IRC channel is really used for developer discussion. 99% of the time support issues like this aren’t dealt with on IRC.

    Ok found the answer:

    In bp-core.php change the ID inside

    /* Define on which blog ID BuddyPress should run */

    if ( !defined( ‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’ ) )

    define( ‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’, 5 );

    for the blog ID it should run on..

    Thats it! ( Not found any problems yet )

    Please read this entire thread. Also, as referenced in that thread, these two tickets in Trac apply:

    That’s an interesting solution, jorries.

    Much simpler than what I was thinking of!

    I learn something new about BuddyPress all the time!

    Unless I am mistaken, I believe that there still are potential issues with setting BP_ROOT_BLOG to something other than “1″. Please read the thread and especially the two Trac tickets I reference above.

    Hey Jeff,

    I noticed the links to the tickets. I’m pretty sure you’re not mistaken about the BP_ROOT_BLOG issues, Jeff; I was just commenting on jorries’ workaround.
