Integrating two separate wordpress installs

Integrating two separate wordpress installs

(OP)
Hey everyone,

I have two separate installs sharing a database, as in custom user and usermeta tables;  Essentially sharing the users, but two separate pages.  Both sites use Buddypress (hopefully right forum :-/?), and the problem is this -

How would/ can I implement BOTH buddypress installs to share all the same profile data.  Essentially both sites do the same thing, one is more geographically localized, and the other is more national.  

The reason for wanting to do this, is because both sites need to be separate, but need to share the users, and display just a couple things from the xprofile table.  If both installs can't hare the same database, is there a way to keep them both in sync?

RE: Integrating two separate wordpress installs

wp multisite might be a good answer.

but a simpler way might be to point one installation at the other's user table.  to do this add these definitions to the relevant wp-config

CODE

define(CUSTOM_USER_TABLE,'xxxx_users');
define(CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE,'xxxx_usermeta');

where xxxx = the prefix defined for the OTHER installation.

this assumes that both sets of tables are within the same database.   

RE: Integrating two separate wordpress installs

did the above answer your question?
