BuddyPress on a Subdomain: Links 404

  • Hi there,

    We currently use WPMU to drive a number of our sites from one source. We run some sites on subdomains (such as as well as various other niche sites on different domains using the WPMU MSM plugin.

    We want to install BuddyPress on a subdomain of our primary domain (eg. The problem is, when I do this is works perfectly except that it renders all links as though they’re from the top domain.

    So none of the following links work:

    * Home

    * Blog

    * Members

    * Groups

    * Blogs

    As instead of going to they point to which yields a 404.

    [I’d asked about this in this thread, but thought it would be worth separating the discussion and marking it as a support topic.]

  • Short answer, it was written to use anything other than the main WPMU install domain. Even though the MSM plugin allows you to almost run “additional” WPMU instances (virtual), the plugin suite doesn’t work that way. You would have to actually create another install for and run BP or hack the code up which I am sure would be a wreck. Don’t think there is an easy way around this one I am afraid.

    The big issue for us is that is a public website so I want to remain exactly as is with no social functions.

    We run as an intranet and long term I see BP as useful as an addition to that.

    In our testing with BuddyPress it seems to play fairly nicely with MSM – posts made by authors on MSM sites are reported by BP etc.

    So, with that in mind, is there a workable way to build the social networking aspect into our current setup?

    This is about the MSM plugin. Turning off the light.
