Subdirectory versus subdomain in1.2

    I noticed on the walk through guide that sub-directory is the preferred route of a wpmu/bp install. I was wondering if this is still the case for 1.2 as I keep stumbling across functionality that doesn’t jive on a sub-dir style install. Is there a preference from the main developers or maybe sub-domain just happens to be the primary use case for early development purposes?

    I guess what I’m wondering… Should I continue raising tickets for subdir style theme issues, and should these be defects or enhancements?

    Thanks!!

    I’ve always used the subdomain structure myself.

    However, I can see the logic of recommended subdirectory structure for BP – you could install BuddyPress in the main blog OR in a subblog (e.g. blog_id_2) instead of the main site.

    e.g. if BP installed in sub-blog, http://mysite.com/members/ . When your members create a blog, the URL would look like this – http://mysite.com/members/username/

    On the other hand, using subdomain structure, right now you have to install in main site (blog_id_1) http://mysite.com/ so that when your members create a blog, the URL would look like this – http://username.mysite.com

    Otherwise, if you install in a sub-blog at blog_id_2 or blog_id_3 etc e.g. http://members.mysite.com , when users create a blog, URL would look like this http://username.members.mysite.com – arggh.

    I was wondering if this is still the case for 1.2 as I keep stumbling across functionality that doesn’t jive on a sub-dir style install

    If you mean you have found bugs, please report them on http://trac.buddypress.org/.

    Early versions of BP didn’t work 100% properly on subdirectory installs but as far as I know it shouldn’t make a difference nowadays (from BuddyPress’ perspective).

    Happy to see, the latest trunk version fixed many of the issues around the user’s default blog page (previously was defaulting to the activity widget for ever user). I’ll log the remaining minor items later today.
