A BuddyPress Multi Network and New Blog Template plugin marriage?

Hello,

I'm working on a new BuddyPress Multi Network.

This is my question (It's a mouthful...):

Do you foresee any obvious issues using a cloned frontpage site of a Buddypress enabled multi-site as the child-site template for a BuddyPress Multi Network?

I'm trying to decide if I can just speedily clone the frontpage site or need to rebuild the original theme on a sub-site to use for cloning to sub-sites.

Should I disable Buddypress and disable ( BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG defined true) before I clone? Since it is already the same theme and Buddypress enabled, it sounds like the way to go.

I'm considering using the "New Blog Template" plugin to clone.
(https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/new-blog-template/)

...and for the multi-Buddypress network plugin:

I'm also posting this question to http://buddydev.com/.

Cheers,
Terry

    Terry,

    If you've got the Buddypress multi-network enabled then that will automatically apply to any site on your network, so creating a new site with the capability will be a non issue (from what I can see) :slight_smile:

    As far as Blog Template, we do suggest that you create the template site on a sub-site, as it can cause major problems when you use the main site.

    Sounds like you are on a good path! Perhaps others with experience doing this will chime in

    Best,

    Kimberly

    Hi Kimberly,

    I noticed BackupBuddy can install an external Wordpress blog into a child site. I have a working version of the site I'm developing. It is buddypress but not multi-site enabled.

    I think it would work as a child site since it is not multi-site enabled. I may just be lucky enough to have a non-multi-site version of my multi-site!

    Your opinion?

    You are talking about exporting that working version and creating your child sites from that?
    That might work! I've not had the change to play with that particular plugin, but it performs as expected then that is definitely another viable option :slight_smile:
