Setting up BuddyPress as sub-section of larger site?

  • I *think* this is is the right section to post this in, forgive me if I’m wrong.

    I’m in a bit of an odd position; I’m trying to add BuddyPress onto an existing site rather than start a new site.

    For starters, I currently run a soccer-centric (well, soccer team-centric) blog over at I’m using the K2 theme with the “dueling sidebars” stylesheet, for those of you who keep track of such things ;-)

    Starting this year I’ve started a new supporter club for the team, and in trying to figure out the best way to come up with 1) a way for club members to register and 2) a way for me to send out periodical notices to club members (and maybe have them interact with each other). BuddyPress seems like a good way to accomplish this especially since it no longer requires WordPress MU.

    However, when I tried to install BuddyPress, it seemed to take over my entire site, with the menu on top of my header and all that. Since BP and my K2/dueling sidebars theme don’t seem to get along, I’m wondering if I can restrict BuddyPress to a certain “subsection” (for example, if a user clicked on the “TOKYO DAMACY 1999” button on the dropdown menu, it would bring them to the BP front page which would of course have all the information on the supporter club.

    So… is this possible? How? I’m able to tinker around with HTML/CSS but I’m not really an expert. I imagine this is less a BuddyPress question and more a WordPress question, in any case.

    thanks in advance!
