Re: BP Album+ || New Features Requests and Discussion
Okay, well clearly you’re smart and you’ve put some effort into debugging your system.
I will add a config option to the next BP Album+ beta that lets users set a custom path for activity stream items. But… it will not fix your existing activity stream items, and if you ever change your directory structure after using the option, you’ll lose all your activity stream items again.
Remember, this is a limitation in BuddyPress, not BP Album+
Still, your best options are:
1) To put your WP installation at the HTML root, which will give you the best compatibility with plugins.
2) If you’re running multiple installs in a single HTML root, use virtual hosts.
3) And if you don’t want to learn how to use virtual hosts, you can probably use a redirect in your .htaccess file as you described (that’s what cPANEL does). Note that there could be SEO implications with using a redirect.
