How To Install In A Sub-Domain

    Hi All,

    I’ve searched for this but haven’t found how to accomplish my install goal.

    I understand the parent-child theme concept (mostly) but this is what I’m trying to accomplish:

    I want to have a magazine type site (let’s call it “”). I then want to have a sub-domain called “” which is a wpmu/bp installation with all of the normal stuff that bp offers. So, users will have their own pages, groups etc. at I do have wildcards enabled but don’t think has a good url flow to it. Hence the subdirectory scheme.

    The question of how to get this to work seamlessly is escaping me. I will be using a child theme based on ThemeShaper’s Thematic framework for the I want to have the same look/feel for the wpmu/buddypress subdomain. If someone logs in to, I want to have them also logged in to at the same time. The only way to accomplish this that I can see is to have as a wpmu install. Am I right on this? This would be similar to WordPress.COM. Or, can I have just a wp stand-alone install propagate the logged in users down to the wpmu/buddypress subdomain?

    I’m not too afraid of getting my hand dirty in the template codes of the Thematic child theme if that’s what it takes but I want to make sure there’s not a simpler way to do this.

    Thanks in advance for any help this forum provides.
