WordPress Multisite install does not create a BuddyPress version of the site.

  • Hi,
    I have just installed a Multisite version of WordPress 3.0.1 with BuddyPress on a Windows 2008 IIS server. The base site is working fine, however when I create a new site, the site appears to be created as a standard WordPress site using the default theme (which I disabled). If I change the Theme, visually it works. When I click on any BuddyPress Tab (Activity, Members, Groups…), I get a 404 error. I may be wrong, but it appears that it is not picking up the fact it is a BuddyPress site (it is showing up as activated in the PlugIns panel). I have tried to DeActivate/Activate to no avail. ANy assistance you can provide would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Jesse

    The ‘New Site’ is not! a buddypress site it’s a WP blog which will carry the BP adminbar. These blogs effectively work just as a standard WP blog their theme is defined from their own admin backend.

    I would have a good read of all the docs you can find on the BP codex and WP codex.

    Thank you hnla for your quick reply. 1) do you have any papers/sites/documentation recommendations (I didn’t see anything directly related)? 2) Is there any existing way (including documentation) to create the child sites as BuddyPress sites?

    Thanks you again, Jesse

    In fairness the docs are a little light at present, but being brought up to date as quickly as possible. Essentially BP needs the root, you cant run bp on a user blog created by the main blog.
