Re: different bbpress install, 1 user db

Ah ok well let’s theorise a bit now. Let’s say I have 100 subfolders with each a bbpress install, all using the same user db. This would work great but if bbpress has an update, I have to install that one 101 times (+1 = the main install). Kinda a lot of work so I wondered if the following is possible (with some hacking or plugin):

All users have their own id right? Well let’s say Jack is a member of forum 1 and he wants his own forum. Jacks id is 123456789 (just an excample). Is it possible to let the keymaster (and ONLY the keymaster) give Jack his own forum? The keymaster will go to Jacks profile and sees a new line in his profile called: Give this user his own forum. When checked, Jack will be admin ow his own forum (so an admin, and not a key master).

How does this work? Well when you type in: you get the standard index of the bbpress forum. If you type: (Jacks ID), you will see the standard index of Jacks forum, which Jack controls as an admin. Posts made in this forum, are stored in the normal db, but with id: 123456789. This way we can filter all posts etc by this id for each forum. The main forum (forum 1) will ofcourse NOT show Jacks posts. The only modification to the db will be to add id to it, I think…. See this as an bbpress MU :)

This way I have just 1 install of bbpress needed and is easy to maintain, and I can still give others a forum too! Well in theory that is…
