    Ah the forum striped a bit of the MySQL but I’m sure the point is clear. :-)

    Scratch that, I must have overlooked it the first 20 times, lol.

    Its located in the bp_user_blogs table, not sure why I kept missing it. ha ha.

    And if others have this problem, then here is some MySQL:

    `INSERT INTO `YOUR_DATABASE`.`PREFIX_bp_user_blogs` (
    `id` ,
    `user_id` ,
    `blog_id`
    )
    VALUES (
    NULL , ‘REPLACE_USER_ID’, ‘REPLACE_BLOG_ID’
    );`

    Obviously replace the parts which say YOUR_DATABASE, PREFIX and REPLACE with the corresponding data.

    I wonder why when importing though that Buddypress doesn’t take this into account? :-)

    Fantastic plugin. I’ve not noticed any issues yet and it seems to work flawlessly for me.

    I’m hoping though that at some point this will also work with Facebook pages and groups thus enabling site owners to integrate with their own promotional stuff on Facebook. I don’t suppose you plan on suppose Fan Pages? I didn’t see an option to do it yet?

    The twitter stream is also amazing!

    Yeah I realise that now after having a play with it

    I inadvertently asked a similar yet different question in another thread, perhaps it could be considered a half way for this also. It involves using the domain map plugin and then adding the following to the wp-config.php:

    Allow BuddyPress to function on multiple blogs of a WPMU installation, not just on one root blog:

    define ( ‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, true );

    It wouldn’t give each site its own buddypress, but it would let you share the one install.

    I’ve not actually tested all this but it seems logical.

    I know there also use to be a plugin that allowed you to be an oid provider, the WP directory shows its last update as 2007 though so not sure how viable an option that would be.

    Whilst not strictly what I was looking for there is a partial solution:

    wp-config.php

    define ( ‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, true );

    This will allow Buddypress to run on site wide blogs rather than just on the root domain so in theory you could have a website just create a manual link to their group with their own mapped or sub domain. not sure how well all themes would work with this though, I guess it won’t hurt me to try at some point :-)

    Yeah, is there an easy way to turn that tab off without altering the code. Users can post from there as well and with this being a new feature (the buddypress part) it kind of makes the site look empty of users.

    Q. Can a user post to a group he’s not a member of?

    I noticed after installing buddy that if I went to this directory and clicked “Start Thread” I could start a new thread in the one and only group which had been set up in my install, the problem is though that this one group didn’t have “Enable discussion forum” under the groups admin, general settings page and so it shouldn’t have a forum yet people could still post to it.

    I presume this must be a bug as it would seem a little off that the group has forums turned off but yet a user can post to that groups forums from the forum directory tab?

    Thanks for your answer, it is a shame that it wont be supported in the near future and possibly not at all, it would give a blog/site owner a chance to have a social network within their site with their own mapped domain.

    I see that WPMU Dev offer a forum plugin to work with bbpress so at least sites could still have a forum.

    Thanks again. :-)

    @ Jeff

    Couldn’t Buddypress be used with the domain mapper plugin to have it enable for each domain? Or the multi-domain plugin for offering blogs on different domains from one install?

    I don’t understand Keiter, why not use WPMU and then have the domain mapper plugin?

    You could set up four sites with it and have each site with its own domain?

    WPMU Dev have a premium plugin or you could Donncha’s free one.

    @ Andrea_r

    Thanks for the 3.0 mention wasn’t aware they were merging the two, been away for a couple of years. Amazing stuff!

    Good to see your still around! :-)
