bp 1.2 setup questions

  • Anointed


    A few questions.

    1. I am trying to setup bp on my wpmu 2.9.1 setup where some of my sites ‘’ can have bp enabled, but some sites like ‘’ do not have bp enabled.

    So I added define ( ‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, true ); to my bp-core.php file towards the top.

    I then went to ‘’ and activated bp.

    The problem is now bp is enabled on all my blogs instead of just the one blog I went to the admin and turned it on at. (I plan on having multiple blogs using bp).

    Did I miss something here that would cause bp to activate system wide instead of on a per blog basis?

    #2. For some reason I am seeing the old buddypress theme, ‘orange one’ and not the new default theme.

    How do I activate the brand new theme on a blog? –I do not see an image of it anywhere in my theme admin page that I can select. I only see the old bp orange ones from my prior install.

    my ULTIMATE goal is to have only certain blogs have the ability to have bp enabled as many clients do not want it at all. Then once it’s working on individual blogs, I can try and figure out how to filter the data so that only members/posts/groups/etc from that blog being displayed would be shown. (mini ning setup).

    Did you follow the BP upgrade instructions here?

    Also if you’re running object cache, disable or clear it before activating your new BP 1.2 theme.



    Thanks Ray, removing the old themes solved the issue.

    What I can’t figure out is why the bp bar is showing up on all of my blogs and not just the one sub-domain blog and root blog that I activated bp on.

    I’m guessing this is because bp is still activating system wide instead of on a per blog basis like other plugins.

    Is there a way of easily only showing the bar on my dev blog so that I can work on building my theme to be bp compatible without effecting all the other blogs? — many do not want bp at all, while others do.



    define(‘BP_DISABLE_ADMIN_BAR’, true);

    found it and it works, although in the admin area it still leaves the blank area where the bar was

    remove_action( ‘wp_head’, ‘bp_core_admin_bar_css’, 1 );

    did not remove the blank area as expected
