I have been contemplating switching my website from a single install to multi site. I would like to offer users the ability to host through subdomains or their own domain. I did try this once before but I see the multisite pro plugin has been updated a lot.
I have some questions and maybe the community can help me out with this.
(1st question) – Is it possible to have a central registration page/sign up page at a subdomain account.mydomain.com? I’d like users to be able to register on my “network” and have access to any site they want but I would like for any sign up/register/login to go through this subdomain. I’d ideally like this subdomain to be only for account registration/login request and it would redirect the user to the previous site that they logged in from. If that’s not practical, then I would like it to direct them to a user dashboard – not the WP-Admin dashboard. I would ideally like to make it customized (like here at WPMUDEV does) if possible.
(2nd question) – Is it possible with the bp multi site plugin to have separate buddypress instances? So for example: Site A has buddypress installed and user accounts. Site B has buddypress installed and user accounts. On Site A , I make a comment on an article and it shows up in my activity. On Site B, that activity on Site A isn’t in my activity wall. Does it work like this?
If I think of any more questions, I'll post. Thanks in advance for the suggestions/feedback.
