Hi ! I have a question about sharing users on different wp/bp installations.
I looked all around the web to find solutions ( Ok, I just googled.. ), and always got the same:
* THE SOLUTION *
« If you want to share users between two sites, just put another prefix on the second site, and add CUSTOM_USER_TABLE and CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE to point at the first site’s prefix »
That is cool. But I fear it wont work with Buddypress. Nor with plugins like Geo My WP.
You see, buddypress uses a lot of database fields, like bp_xprofile_fields. Will the second site be able to access the xprofile fields of users when I use THE SOLUTION ? I mean… the solution only transfers user_table and user_meta… not bp_xprofile_fields, or bp_friends, or wppl_friends_locator ( for geo my wp plugin… ).
So, if I want to let my second site access my first site’s users and xprofiles, don’t I need to add more than user_table and user_meta in its config.php ?
Thanks for the answer
EDIT: Or is it easier with multisite ? It is not enabled yet… And my main site is already in a subfolder… As I understand it, the main site of a multisite must be at the root of the other sites… ?
