Re: Will BuddyPress work with Multi-Site Manager Plugin



(I believe what I’m about to write is relatable to the topic at hand; if not, feel free to close the thread!)

I’m just starting to grasp the whole concept of multi-sites.

From what I’ve read, it’s exactly what I want to do.

hxxp:// (blog_id #1 should be shown here, including all its posts, categories and pages)

So that new blogs will have a subdirectory under that subdomain.

eg. hxxp://

Single sign-on should work across the root and subdomain.

From those that have responded to me on the WPMU forums, this should be possible with the multi-site plugin.

Now for the BuddyPress questions!

I’m guessing this would require some core hacking.

Also, if I go to hxxp://, would this show blogs from the subdomain?

Thanks for reading! Hope to hear some feedback!
