BP Group Sites


The BP Group Sites plugin enables the creation of a many-to-many relationship between BuddyPress Groups and WordPress Sites. This is useful when you have a BuddyPress network in which you want, for example, many groups to comment simultaneously on sites which they share access to.

The plugin is designed to work with CommentPress Core “documents” (which are themselves complete sub-sites) so that there can be many reading groups for each document and many documents for each reading group.

This plugin was developed for The Readers’ Thoreau where it enables multiple reading groups to collectively discuss the works of Henry David Thoreau.


This plugin requires a minimum of WordPress 4.2.1 and BuddyPress 2.0.

BuddyPress 12.x

This plugin has not yet been tested with the new BP Rewrites API in BuddyPress 12.x. It is therefore recommended to remain on BuddyPress 11.4 or install the BP Classic plugin until compatibility has been written and tested.

Plugin Development

This plugin is in active development. For feature requests and bug reports (or if you’re a plugin author and want to contribute) please visit the plugin’s GitHub repository.


  1. Extract the plugin archive
  2. Upload plugin files to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Network activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress Multisite Network Admin

By default, this plugin will use internal templates for the BuddyPress pages that it creates. The default can be found in the “assets/templates/bpgsites” directory. If you want to override these templates, copy the enclosing directory to your theme’s root directory so that your template files live in “your-theme-dir/bpgsites”. An alternative set of templates is provided in “assets/templates” for the Twenty Sixteen theme, so if you are using that theme, copy these files to “your-theme-dir/bpgsites” instead.
