Blank site after installing Buddypress in Wordpress 3

Reported by: retroriff's profile retroriff Owned by:
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: normal
Severity: Version:
Component: Core Keywords: wordpress 3



I’d like to keep my main blog (site 1) and installing Buddypress in another blog (site 2) with an URL such as

“Site 1″ should use my customized theme, while “Site 2″ should work with “Buddypress default” theme. However once I’ve installed Buddypress, “Site 1″ gets blank. If I copy the Buddypress default theme’s folders (Activity, groups, etc) inside my customized theme, “Site 1″ works, but instead of showing its own content, I get the Buddypress activity.

I added the following to the wp-config:

define ('BP_ROOT_BLOG', 2 );

And I also tried to create a bp-custom.php plugin following these instructions:

However it still appears blank.

On the forums someone suggested me to submit it as a bug.

I get the error with Wordpress RC1 and Wordpress RC3.

Thank you.

You must have the network feature enabled in WP 3.0:

Site 1 should use your customized theme.
Site 2 should use the default BP theme.

If this is your current setup, please post any error messages from the server.
