I used to have a single wordpress site with a buddypress section (logged out visitors would see the blog only, but logged in users would see the buddypress area). I realised this was ineffective so i converted it to a multisite, where my "public" website was the root domain, and my "intranet" was at /team subdirectory. When I visit the network site admin, I see 190 users. When I visit the public website admin (which was the original site), I see 190 users. When I visit the /team subsite admin, I only see one user: me, the superadmin. Something looks odd, but I know that at the back-end, WP has only one users table so things should theoretically be fine.

  • The posts on my public website are written by people who register to be part of my intranet subsite.
  • The intranet should be the area where members can update their author bio, their profile image, etc. We also discuss new article drafts there.

My questions are: Should new members register on my main root site, or on the /team subsite. That is, should the "register/join our team" link point to http://main.com/register or http://main.com/team/register ? Does it make a difference? How do I configure the backend of my multisite so that there is only one blog, and all articles, drafts, etc are shared across my main site and my team site (for example, I want each member's profile page on the team intranet to list all the posts that they have written for the public website).

Here is stuff that I have tried thus far (the last line aligns the blog posts, but doesn't sync the members):

wp-config.php

define( 'WP_DEBUG', false );
define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);
define('MULTISITE', true);
define('SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL', false);
define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'localhost');
define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/wordpress2/');
define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
define('BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
define ( 'BP_ROOT_BLOG', 2 ); // "2" is the team subsite $id

bp-custom.php

define ( 'BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG', true );
add_filter( 'bp_is_multiblog_mode', '__return_true' );

define ( 'BP_ROOT_BLOG', 3 );
add_filter( 'bp_get_root_blog_id', 'filter_root_blog_id' ); // return blog ID in

I also installed a plugin WordPress Multisite User Sync/Unsync but not sure if that solves my problem. Should I add a "last activity" to each member so that they appear in my Team users list (I read somewhere this might help)?
