Directory as a section of website, not to take over all the website

I looked at the directory plugin when it came out at first intending to use it as a section within an existing website but when installed it took over all the website and theme knocking out all other content.

Has it been updated so that it can be used as a section within a website or did I perhaps not configure it correctly? This was on a single WP with BP installatio.

Many thanks for any feedback / suggestions.
