Hello! And first a big thanks to the developers for such great tools!
I am working at a small institution and as a side project am trying to set up wordpress/buddypress/network system.
I can install wordpress, get multisite enabled, install buddypress. All works fine. Now I want to make independent buddypress setups for each group in the institute. So I start fresh - wordpress installed, enable multisite and then install Networks for WordPress.
I can install the Networks for WordPress Plugin, and can create networks but it appears that I can only access Network Admin for the first site that I created. ie institute.intranet is from the fresh installation of wordpress, and group1.institute.intranet, group2.institute.intranet are Networks that I create after installing Networks for WordPress.
After this, I install BP Multi Network Plugin (in a created mu-plugins directory and copy php file - took me a bit to figure that out). Then I install buddypress and I'm supposed to activate buddypress on each network (group1.institute.intranet, group2.institute.intranet). However, as mentioned above, I can only access Network Admin for my first site (Network Admin:institute.intranet but I can never get Network Admin: group1.institute.intranet).
Since my background is not in server setups, I wonder if I am missing something straightforward.
For example, I running on the local server machine, I have altered the local hosts file to point my sites (institute.intranet, group1.institute.intranet,) to the server IP (and once I have things running will focus on dns resolving for the institute later) but perhaps this has messed things up?
Or is there just some simple menu item somewhere that I am missing.
Thanks in advance for any tips, suggestions or links to something I should read.
