Multiblogs using one buddypress database?

    I am setting up several blogs in a multiblog setting, which means that all blogs share the same usertable and usermeta table. Now I want to drop in buddypress into the mix and I wonder if there is a good way to do that without having multiple userdata for each blog?

    This is for several singleuser 2.9.1 blogs and buddypress 1.2 :)

    what you refer to would be a WordPressMU install, which is a multi-users/blogs version of wordpress…

    Nope :)

    Not looking for a MU setup as MU has been discarded as an option for several reasons :)

    I think I have found the solution though by changing all instances of $wpdb->prefix to the database and prefix I want to use for all Buddypress installations.

    No WordPress MU? Those better be really good reasons! Be careful about hacking together your own network of blogs when WordPress can already do it for you. Did you know that WordPress is merging with MU for version 3.0?

    Yup, hopefully it will take the good parts of MU and make WP capable of both Multi User and Multi Blog functions :)

    I have not seen any word on when it will get out though and that means its a few months off at least and then Buddypress need a while to rewrite for 3.0. Don’t want to wait that long really to see if things become the way I want or not :)

    It’s just to bad Buddypress do not have a way to define which database to use for Buddypress information by default, but I guess it never needed it :)

    3.0 is available for testing in trunk. A very rough timeline is April. If you could specify what things you wanted, I can certainly tell you if they;re coming in 3.0 or not. :)

    If you put up the multiblog setup correctly then there should be no problem with double data. I have a test network running with 3 blogs, the main having buddypress installed and even a single bbpress install. :)

    Xevo I would like to know how you have that setup if you don’t mind?

    Andrea_r I did not know that, got a link to that trunk?

    you won’t have multiple/duplicate userdata in the db, buddypress will plugin just fine and you’ll be able to enable it on a per site basis for multi-site.
