Buddypress and themes not built for Buddypress


I set up a WP multisite network using themes that are not built for Buddypress. I want to create a membership site on at least one of the sites in the network. If I create a membership site using Buddypress and the WPMU plugins on one site in the network, will it mess up all of my other themes?

    Hiya Dustin,

    You can enable BuddyPress on any of the subsites by defining it in your wp-config like so:
    define ( 'BP_ROOT_BLOG', 3 );

    Then BuddyPress will only be activated on that site and other sites/themes will be fine. You may also want to get rid of the BuddyPress bar that appears across all sites to keep things more independent.

    Let us know if you need anything further.
