    Reply To: Unexpected Subdirectory Structure for Subdomain Groups, by stratact

    OK, so far the responses to my posting are telling me that, for Buddypress:

    “BuddyPress is an independent plugin, and I as far as know, it has never worked as you expect it to. Group URLs have always been example.com/groups/groupname — whether you’re using WordPress single site, or Multisite with sub-domain or sub-directly.”


    “There is no setting for a subdomain group structure because it does not exist.”

    So, how is it true that when I created a Group called “Test” by clicking the “Create a Group” link ( subdomain.domain.org/groups/create/ ), a subdomain group named “Test” ( test.subdomain.domain.org/wp-admin/ ) appears under my “My Sites” link at the top of my subdomain’s Home Page (and other subdomain “Test” pages too). At this link, I can select from a dropdown menu either, Dashboard, New Post, Manage Comments, or Visit Site.” So, by creating a Group, I created a new subdomain that serves as the Group itself.

    Hence, a subdomain group structure does indeed exist, by design, and was either intended but not advertised by the developers (of WordPress or Buddypress), or not intended but resulted from a programming loophole or error.

    So, which is it? Can anyone else shed some light on this mystery?
    Is anyone willing to try it, to verify that this does indeed work?
