Two WP3 installs, one with buddypress
I’m sure this has been covered but my relatively weak Google-fu (and search-fu as it applies to this forum) has come up with very little that can help me with this.
I currently have one WP3 install, multi-site, subdomain, that just hosts sites with content on them. No community stuff. Subdomain install. Let’s say it’s http://www.mysite.com.
I want to have BuddyPress installed in order to give users blogs and have a community, but I am paranoid about them being able to use the plugins I have installed (since the plugin limitation plugins I’ve found do not properly work on the latest WP version) AND from what I understand, I can’t have BuddyPress give users a subdirectory blog on a subdomain install.
tl;dr: Here’s what I want to do:
– have one WP install with just content. Subdomain install.
— http://www.mysite.com, blah.mysite.com, blahblah.mysite.com etc.
— In a perfect world, be able to embed BuddyPress stuff into this site, too.
– have a WP install just for a community OR a BuddyPress install that would let users use subdirectories. (Possibly-undesirable plugins isolated, if that’s the case.) Subdirectory install.
— community.mysite.com/userblog1 etc.
— Probably integrate with Simple:Press too, but that’s outside the scope of what I need help with and I can deal with that myself
I already know that there’s a way to share user tables by way of wp-config. What the big deal is now is if this is possible to properly execute. With that in mind, has anyone tried this or know how to pull it off?
Thanks in advance, and please forgive me if it turns out this was the easiest thing to find in the history of ever.
