Multisite BuddyPress


Having posted in a few different places I’m still confused as to whether this is even possible, could anyone shed any light on this please…?

I have a WP multisite install that looks like this:


There are is a common theme across all the sites on the multisite, and also common plugins.

What I would like is BP activated for each site, such that each site has its own set of users, its own feeds, in effect a ‘BPMU’

Users of site1 for example only see user activity that is associated with site1.

Is this even possible?

    Hiya Simon,

    No. It’s not possible (yet). BuddyPress must be network activated when on a multisite – you can’t activate it individually. However, I believe this is slated to be added in the 1.6 release. That’s not a guarantee, but I know it’s on their roadmap.


Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
