Multisite with Buddypress

  • Profile photo of roclimb



    I know this has been asked but I can’t find a relevant answer online yet for what I am looking for.

    I have a wordpress theme I developed. Lets call it Main_Theme. I want to install Multisite and then Buddypress. I want to use the default buddypress theme–as a different subdomain or whatever i need to do, and then my Main_Theme as a regular wordpress theme with a link someplace that will take me to the Buddypress theme.

    Can I do this with Multisite?
    if so what is the best way?

    Thanks in advance

    Before installing BuddyPress –

    1. Create a network

    2. Decide now where you want BuddyPress to run primarily on. If BP is going to run subsite (subdirectory or subdomain site) then find the blog_id number of that subsite and add the following to your new bp-custom.php file. e.g. blog id = 2
    `define ( ‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’, 2 );`
    If you want BP in main site, do nothing, that’s the default BP “home”

    3. Install BuddyPress and activate. Go through Installation Wizard.

    4. Use BP theme in main site or subsite per #2 above.
