I'm using buddypress and daily theme and am considering adding the directory plugin to my site in place of a sort of directory I've already made using posts.
From my searches here I see that I cannot use the directory plugin with buddypress. I don't want the directory to be the main site anyways. I want it to be part of my existing site.
Soooo...my question is....can I create an entirely new wordpress install with a different url etc. for the directory and THEN link to it or more importantly create a redirect from my current site - so that it appears as though the directory is part of the original site?
My guess is yes - I can do this - but are there any reasons why I shouldn't - technical wise or seo wise or anything like that?
I'm also on bluehost shared hosting and am currently getting throttled. Will adding a subdomain under my current domain for the directory cause me even more issues?
Is it better to get a new bluehost account for this or start to look into vsp etc.?
I'm not doing nor plan to do multisite. My install is single site - but considering I am currently getting throttled - I assume it's only a matter of time before I have to upgrade.
I'm certainly not a newbie at this but am not overly tech savvy as well so I'd need a cpanel and supported vsp etc. Everything I've done thus far I've learned through hours and hours on various forums here and elsewhere.
Thoughts on how to proceed?
