I'm evaluating the possibility of creating a multi-language WordPress site by using a multisite subdomain based environment (with the help of Multilingual Press – Free edition for now).
I am using empty root blog mysite.com which is supposed to show more or less just a language selector, plus two child blogs – in this case en.mysite.com and de.mysite.com for English and German; other languages will follow.
BuddyPress 2.0.1 is working smoothly (after figuring out the global avatar issue): They show up over both language branches, can interact with each other, all good.
I got Events Manager 5.5.3 installed. I removed the event related pages from the root blog, but they are present in the child blogs and working well. "Enable global tables mode" is enabled. Still – I can't figure out how to create global events.
For the time being, I'm creating events using the WP Admin user. If I create them in the root blog, they are available only in the root blog – which doesn't work too well, as I don't have the respective pages there. However, they don't show up in the child blogs.
Likewise, if I create events in one the child blogs, they don't show up in the other one. I can, however, add a "[events_list blog=x]" smartcode to the events page to at least list the other blog's events.
But when a user books into an event, his "My Bookings" page shows only the bookings from the child blog he is just visiting. To my knowledge, there's no "[bookings blog=x]" smartcode that I could add as a workaround.
So – what am I doing wrong? Is there something that I'm missing to create true global events that will be visible on all child blogs, while hopefully the "My Bookings" page will also show all of them for every user?
Thanks a lot in advance – any help is highly appreciated!
