Buddypress on several blogs?

  • nig3d



    is it possible to install buddypress on secondary blogs and share the users?

    As far as I got, if I register to the main blog, I’m automatically registered to other blog, I’m wondering if in this way it’s possible to have different groups for each blog and share the users.

    It’s a way to catalog the information, like a forum with multiple forums.

    I could have the main blog and the a blog for each profession with the discussion groups related to that profession.

    Is that already possible?

    The behavior I’m having currently with the 1.2.1 version is that I can install buddypress on 2 blogs, but I can see the group page only in the main blog, while in the secondary blog I get a “The page you were looking for was not found.”

    I was thinking about this as well.

    It would be good to look into the possibilities more.

    Do you have links for what you had so far?

    I was thinking if anything it may work with the dual sign on plugin.

    Let me know your discoveries, perhaps we can collaborate to see if we can make this happen.

    “and share the users” … nig3d and Jeff, are you thinking along the lines of “BP – BP Connect” or “BP Federation” as in ?

    @Avatar Jeff, I’ve seen OpenSSO integrated with WP but which dual sign on plugin did you mean?



    Yes, yes. Federation Style.

    OpenSSO integrated with WP seems to be a good start.

    Do you know if that is working with BP as well?

    Also BP-FB Connect and WP-FB-AutoConnect

    could possibly be extended to BP-Connecting.

    But the plugin I was thinking of, I can’t seem to find anymore.

    It was meant for a dual sign on to BP + other platforms.

    Anyone know it’s whereabouts?

    I’m up for a federation.

    Any ideas and collabs on this are welcome.

    I do not know how OpenSSO flies with BP. I looked and sorry, my memory and reference are slightly outdated; “OpenSSO” the project has become OpenAM and lives on, here as of last month, per Oracle swallowing Sun, then spitting out OpenSSO the project but keeping OpenSSO the name (classic).

    I have had and have seen BP running with LDAP and with SSO between BP and MediaWiki. Here obviously we have BP and “external” bbPress with SSO even if it does still have the “Help I can’t post! the first time” issue. I have not personally used a plugin to this effect, but @boonebgorges or someone else may have wrapped up the like.

    As for “BP Federation” I suggest it be more than BP – BP, rather BP – WP. WP sites with no interest in running their own BP could affiliate, conjugate, federate with an umbrella BP.

    True, a system running BP after WP 3 will be able to host sites but each will necessarily be limited in some regards v. independent WP sites, just as one is now limited by being a blog site within a MU. With BP Federation, my thought is WP sites could have their cake — being independent — and eat it, too — affiliate with a parent BP — without needing to run BP themselves. Is that like having cake, eating it, too, AND sharing some with a friend? OK now I want cake. BG
