Can a BuddyPress install be an add on to a blog?

    I’ve searched everywhere for this answer. Let’s say I have a standard blog site on WPMU and I want BuddyPress to run secondary to it using the same registered members. Basically I want to run a standard blog site and then have the social networking added on.

    Can I do that? Or was BuddyPress meant to be a standalone with one install of WPMU?

    Hope this wasn’t the stupidest question of the year. Thank you for your time.

    BuddyPress is a set of WPMU plugins, so if you want add new feature, install it and have extended profile, private messages, ecc… the answer for your question is Yes, you can.

    It’s not a stupid question, but it is worded a little strangely.

    BuddyPress basically works inside/outside of WPMU, taking what is otherwise just a random assortment of administered blogs, and adds a social networking flair on top of it to allow a layer of interaction between registered users and blog owners.

    One install of BuddyPress per one install of WPMU.

    Does that make sense?
