Same instance of Buddypress across domains?

    @seobrien

    Anyone seen documentation or speculation on how to get one network across more than one domain? Two installs of WPMU on two distinct domains leveraging the same network of users in Buddypress.

    At all possible and if so, any direction?

  • Here is my thoughts:

    1) It is already easy enough to share wp_users across several WPMU installs or WP installs, so that part would be pretty simple (even using HyperDB)

    2) Having two WPMU installs being able to write to the same BP tables might be a disaster, but it might work. Once again using something like HyperDB, but it seems as though BP has issues with tables not being in same database as main WPMU tables.

    I am still playing with this myself on test installs, so if I learn anything new, I would be happy to report.

    you should use one install of mu and then use multi site manager it uses just the one database

    you can then use it like so to access members profiles

    eg

    http://hyrxx.com/members/Hyrxx/ (dot com)

    http://hyrxx.tv/members/Hyrxx/ (dot tv)

    @hyrxx

    So you are suggesting wpmu on hyrxx.com

    Buddypress installed there

    What is on hyrxx.tv?

    @hyrxx

    wpmu and buddypress are installed on hyrxx.com and hyrxx.tv is another domain added using the multisite manager which allows me to use the same installation but for multiple domains at the moment its blank but i am going to move my main blog there

    my freinds blog is also hosted on my installation in this way

    rather than having to use subdomains ;)

    Got it, makes sense

    Are you not concerned about duplicate content penalties from Google re: SEO?
