Integrate subdomains with a wpmu/buddypress sibdirectory install

I have a WPMU/buddypress install with subdirectories on my domain
MultiDB is installed

I would like to setup two subdomains:
"" with the directory plugin being used here and
"" with the classifieds plugin being used here.

My goal is to have users signup at any site and have access to all 3 sites.

should I use the same db's as the main install?
can the users still have buddypress accessible on all sites (i know the directory plugin is not buddypress compatible yet)
will the users be able to use one dashboard?

any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated?

    Hiya Mike,

    To be honest, I'd wait for the next release of directory to try and tackle this. It will allow for not only BuddyPress compatibility but also for the ability to be installed on a sub-directory.

    The other cool thing about Directory and Classifieds is that they offer the ability to post from the front-end of the site so they shouldn't need access to the dashboard for these items.

    Your final step will be to make sure that when a user signs up for a site, they are given roles on your directory and classified sub-sites. You should be good to go from there.
