Multisite URLs UNDER Buddypress Scheme?

  • My apologies if this was even remotely covered before, but I can’t seem to find another thread or Google result for my desired solution.

    Currently, new blogs in WP (under directories-mode) show up as:{username}
    And Buddypress URLs are:{username}/action

    I’d get the WP blogs to appear as:{username}/blog{username}/blog/2010/08/postnamehere.html{username}/blog/pagenamehere.html -or-{username}/blog/page/pagenamehere.html

    Though, if somehow possible, maybe make the pages show up without the “/blog” tag:{username}/page/pagenamehere.html

    I’m pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to achieve at least the first part of the examples above. I know it could potentially create long URLs, depending on the permalinks structure, but I’d rather keep everything neatly under as uniform as possible. I’m a permalinks-fanatic like that. :P As of now, I’m only in the development phase, so I’m willing to change whatever files needed to gain this functionality. I have WordPress 3.0 with multisites enabled (currently in sub-domains, but will change to directories to test any theories), and the latest stable Buddypress is installed.

    If there are some really severe (showstopping) side-effects to even attempting such a scheme, then by all means, let me know in detail. “I don’t prefer that” is not a valid reason, though.

    Sorry for the huge post, but a thousand thanks in advance for the assistance! I realize a lot of this could be achieved by paying someone an insane amount of money (and if I really must, I can), but I’ll never learn that way. ;)

    (PS: Would there be a way of forcing all blogs to use a certain structure, with no possibility of changing it?)

    I find it hard to believe that no one around here can even point me in the right direction

    It’s a really tough question. And tough questions involve tough answers, and if someone who is reading doesn’t know or hasn’t done such a thing before, the likelihood of someone volunteering an hour of their own time to work out a solution is slim. I’ve replied to your more recent post, but I don’t know how this could be done.



    Firstly, to put profilt to root directory : define ( ‘BP_ENABLE_ROOT_PROFILES’, true );
    This will get the the url of
    Secondly, multisite issue. Go to Dashboard/Super Admin/Sites/Edit/Permalink Structure
    there you’ll see the annoying “blog/” structure. edit it. That’s all.
    Thirdly, the problem– What if somebody in your network create a blog “cat”, and your root blog have a category of “cat” ? No solution for this yet, wait WP 3.0.2

    The OP is asking for the blog URL part to be after the /members/membername part. Even if root profiles is set, the blog itself won’t be as required.

    This is really a tough one!

    @espellcaste you are resurrecting a whole series of very old threads, for little reason, can you leave old threads alone and focus on newer ones please.
