How to enable BuddyPress in WordPress 3.0

In WPMU, there was an option that would let you add Buddypress function on all multi-blogs (network blogs) installed under the main installation. Due to the big merge in WordPress 3.0, now you can enable BuddyPress in WordPress using the wp-config.php file as well.

Simply open your wp-config.php file and add the following line.

define ( 'BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG', true );

This trick was shared by David Hunt in our Facebook Community.

Note: Do this only if you want Buddypress to show up across all blogs in the system. It’s not required.

    I am not sure I understand the implications, what would be the benefits of doing so?

      Rather than enabling it one by one, you can enable it all through out all your blogs. It saves time.
