do not want to use the default site

  • I have wordpress 3.0.1 in which I creacted several sites(blogs). I installed the buddpress plugin. Now I want to use it for a site, but not the wordpress default site. This seems impossible, I have to use the wordpress default site first. Is this required or a bug?

  • I know buddypress is a network plugin so it’s also activated in the default site. But what I mean is that I have to use the default site first before I can use other sites with buddpress. That looks like a bug.

    Look in the documentation on this site about installing BuddyPress in a secondary blog.

    That tells you how to do this

    Thanks Roger. That documentation confuses me a little though. If I activate buddypress it is activated on alle sites of the wordpress installation, so what does “if you didn’t activate BuddyPress site-wide” mean? I want a buddpress community over several worpress sites, are these sites not all equal in the community because there is a buddypress root blog?



    Codex page has been updated to be less confusing.

    Yes, there is a BuddyPress primary site … where you’d run a BuddyPress specific theme, that lets you view members directories, group directories, member profiles, etc.

    That means I can not view members, groups and profiles on other wordpress sites of my wordpress installation? Other sites are sites which are not buddypress primary sites but which do have buddypress activated because buddypress is a network plugin.
