Multiple networks, restricting BuddyPress to only one, sharing a TLD? (2 posts)

    So I'm using the Multi-Network plug-in, and I'm wondering about the following scenario:

    I want two networks.
    Network 1: This is for my personal websites, so there won't be any other users, and I just want it to be a normal following
    Network 2: I want to install BuddyPress here, so it onlyaffects the sites in this network. It's going to function, hopefully, as a forum/social network for a group of my friends. I don't want BuddyPress to touch Network 1-- it only works on a network-activate basis, but could that be restricted to Network 2 only instead of the super-network?

    Also: I want them both to run off of mywebsite.com. For example:
    Network 1: Some sites would be, gardening.mywebsite.com, family.mywebite.com, etc.
    Network 2: At least one site would be ourforum.mywebsite.com.

    Is it possible to share the domain in this way between two networks?

  2. but could that be restricted to Network 2 only instead of the super-network?

    Nope. Buddypress is global to the install. User woudl have mywebsite.com/username.

    You could make the base one of the other sites. Dunno why you'd need two networks if all you want is subdomains though.
