Re: BP widgets in subblogs
So just as a reference for anyone else – I ended up having a quick look at the widget files… if you feel led to base your BP home page on a sub-blog all you need to do is open the widgets php file (i.e. ‘bp-blogs-wigets.php’) and find the condition that limits it to blog id = 1. change the 1 to the ID for the desired blog and your sorted. (There were two instances of this within the file to be changed).
I’m sure you could just take the limiting factor out too – but I took the easy path.
