Multiuser & Buddypress: separate sites without separate networks?

    Hi,
    I’ve set up a WordPress Multiuser install with Buddypress. So far it’s mostly working great (thank you for such a great open source project!)

    In the default configuration, Buddypress shares all activity, content, and users across WordPress sites. However, I want to isolate them — the activity and content should be separate for each site, but users should be shared between them.

    I know there are currently plugins (WP Multi Network and BP Multi Network) that will allow this functionality, but the problem is that they set up multiple networks. I’m only going to ever create one site per network, so it feels a bit redundant. I only want to create multiple sites. Is there any way to apply this feature from networks to sites? In other words, can I have separate sites without separate networks?

    Many thanks,
    Bill

    @mike245 by default, there’s only one instance of BuddyPress per WordPress (single or multisite) installation. What you want – multiple BuddyPress installations in one Multisite install – is not possible without a BP multinetwork plugin. There are two plugins available and of those two, since you want a shared userbase, you would need https://wordpress.org/plugins/bp-multi-network/

    @mercime Sorry, I forgot to mention that I’m already using BP Multi Network and Networks for WordPress! Unfortunately, they’re doing the wrong thing: while each network/site now has Buddypress working, all content and users are mirrored/shared across the networks/sites. Instead I need to have Buddypress working on all networks/sites, with *separate* content but *shared* users. Is there any way to do this?

    Thank you!

    @mike245 Strange. Only users not the content should be shared across the network for that plugin as far as I know. Have only used the other BP Multinetwork plugin, so don’t quite know why that’s happening in your installation. Recommend that you post at plugin’s support forums https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/bp-multi-network

    @mercime: Hmm, okay, I’ll post there. Thanks for the help!
