Are you experienced with BuddyPress? This is another interesting question that came up during our WordPress Q & A last week.
Submitted by a WPMU reader named Kris:
We are running WordPress MU and BuddyPress as one blog setup, but the site seems to be quite slow.
Would it make it faster if we had a two separate installations? One for our WordPress blog (with all the content etc..), and another installation for users to access Buddypress. A single login would need to work across both of these sites.
I assume this would make both sites load faster, as some plugins are needed only for WordPress, and some are specific to BuddyPress.
Are there any other benefits/drawbacks to this idea that I’m not aware of?
Can anyone help Kris out with this? If you know a thing or two about BuddyPress, please leave us a comment below this article and share your thoughts. In the spirit of Christmas!
