    Hi – just getting started and haven’t tested this yet –

    Is it possible to have Buddypress network activated, but activate buddyblog only on a subsite, and then limit posting to members with custom assigned role.

    Using other plugins I can create the custom role, and I can assign members to that role, but

    is it possible to set BuddyBlog to only allow posting for that custom role, and only on the that one subsite?

    Hi Todd,
    Welcome to BuddyDev.

    Yes, You can do that with BuddyBlog but there are a few things about BuddyPress setup that you should know:-

    1. When BuddyPress is network active, The Profile page(where all the user menus are) are only accessible on the main site

    2. You can change the above behaviour in 2 ways:-
    A). You can define BP_ROOT_BLOG constant with a blog ID and that specific blog will act as you main BuddyPress network

    B) Or you can enable multi blog mode( define BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG as true ) and all the blogs on your multisite network can have the profile/all other pages(still sharing the global tables).

    In your case, if you want to limit posting to a sub site, you will need the BuddyBlog menu accessible from that sub site only. To achieve that, you will need the profile on that sub site(using either of the above 2 method).
