Commentpress for Multisite integrates the Commentpress plugin and theme into a WordPress Multisite environment. It requires the key Commentpress plugin to be installed (but not activated) and is additional to it, not a replacement for it.
The Commentpress theme must also be present in
/wp-content/themes and will be auto-activated by this plugin. Optionally, it will also manage the activation of the AJAX commenting plugin if it is present.
Note: this plugin supersedes the Commentpress for BuddyPress plugin, which is now deprecated. If you already have that installed, just deactivate it before following the installation instructions below.
- Unzip the .zip file and, if needed, rename the enclosing folder so that the plugin's files are located directly inside
- If you are using a version of BuddyPress that is less than 1.6 and you don't already have a custom settings file, move
/wp-content/plugins. If you do have that file already, then make sure you're enabling BP_USE_WP_ADMIN_BAR, which is the default setting for BuddyPress 1.6.
- Network activate the plugin
- You are done!
