One bbpress per blog in wordpress mu

  • Hi,

    I have a wordpress mu install + buddypress. All the stuff works fine. I have installed bbpress. As it was difficult to tune the installation, I don’t know if what I can’t do if the consequence of a bad installation or only a limitation of bbpress.

    I thought bbpress was buillt to work with wordpress mu : then I should be able to automatically enable a forum per blog created. But it is not the case : there’s one forum belonging to the first blog wp mu, and other blogs do not have one’s.

    I don’t know if I am clear so I describe what I need.

    Let’s say I create a WordPress MU on

    I install bbpress to the path. Ok, it works.

    Now, I create another blog, let’s say

    When I enter the url, I should get a new forum space, not the forum that belongs to the main blog.

    How to do that ?

    bbPress was not built to work like that with WMPU. As for how to enable that functionality, I’m not sure. I think you would have to install bbPress on each blog. I’ve not heard of a way to have something like WPMU for bbPress (i.e. BBMU.)

    I’m guessing that Automattic built something similar to bbMU for TalkPress?

    Not sure what if they plan to release that or not… I’m guessing they will, but that it’s not a huge priority?



    I wonder how hard it would be to do something like a bbMU? Not hosted (like but just like WMPU?



    Greetings :)

    Fred, did you find any solution?

    Thanks a lot
