>>You can NOT create multiple blogs with WP. It does not have that feature.<<
Actually, I found information that says you can - with hacks. It's not supported, but it is possible. There's even a section in the Documentation here that says it's possible through WPMU (multi-users) - but I don't need multiple users. However, if that's the route I need to go, then I shall - but I'd like to prevent it :) (And I know that the WPMU isn't supported by these forums, either. I was just hoping that someone could give me an alternate suggestion.)
However the fact that "you can't" seems rather odd - in most other systems, it's quite easy to do so - I'm wondering why that feature wasn't implemented in WP?
Podz - that's exactly what I need. I've found how to "add a page" but I can't figure out how to edit/post to the pages in the same way as I would the main index (blog) page.
For example, (using pMachine as my example for this) I would create a template for my site for the index page, then I would also create a template (based off of the index template) for the "cats", "dogs" and "horses" pages. Then, when I went to create a post, all I have to do is select "which section to post in?" - my choices would be "index", "cats", "dogs" and "horses". (It's somewhat similar in Pivot and MT) So I was wondering if WP had the same feature.
Bascially, what I attempted to do was place the editable pages (the ones I wanted to "blog" on aside from the index page) in the same folder as the index.php page. They show up on the sidebar in my administration area - just like the stylesheet, header, footer, sidebar - all of that. However, when I try to *link* to those pages, I get a "400 Bad Request" error. It says exactly this:
"Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
Invalid URI in request GET /wordpress2.02/downloads.php HTTP/1.1"
I know the page is there, but I can't even access it separately from the link on the site - I get the same error. (BTW - it's currently on my localhost - trying to get everything to jive before I move it to an actual server.)
So I'm wondering if I've just used too many other systems, and are used to how they work - this is new and different to me, so I'm trying to understand how I can do what I need to do :)
