How would I go about changing the slugs for a BP site so that I can have URLs like domain.com/community/members/ etc
I have read about using BP on a second blog but from what I can tell you don’t use WPMU/3.0 MS on here so I’m guessing you do it differently. I had a look at doing with slugs but it just breaks the urls if i do this ‘community/members’
Any updates on this? What does BP 1.3 bring to the table that would change things regarding the permalinks? Using WP Pages sounds really screwy, especially seen as BP currently doesn’t rely on this so I can’t see why it suddenly would.
Mainly to allow BuddyPress pages to be put into custom menus and hierarchies like you can do with regular WordPress pages or posts. The change will be invisibile unless you want to set up your site like this, then it will be easy. This site does not run BuddyPress 1.3, it’s too early for that, though I suppose it is possible the code has been backported.
@apeatling Would you answer this /communities/ URL question once and for all please? Thanks.
Using WP Pages sounds messy to me because then you would just end up with a bunch of blank pages that used special templates. You don’t have pages for other dynamic sections in WP like archives, searches, etc. It should be left as coded back-end, and if need be some option page if people feel the need that general people should be able to do it (personally I think it should be left back-end).
