Multi-Author with subdomain-based filters? (4 posts)

    Is it possible to have one blog with multiple authors (so far so good).. but to see an individual author's work you go to a sub-domain?
    NOT mu.wordpress, but something like ONE blog to which 3 people post, same theme, same categories, i.e. your average blog with several authors..
    like:
    all.blog.com: shows the entire blog
    me.blog.com: shows posts ON all.blog.com that are by ME
    you.blog.com: shows posts on all.blog.com that are by YOU
    him.blog.com: shows posts on him.blog.com that are by HIM

    .htaccess and url rewrites are ok, as in it doesn't have to stay on that domain, just direct to it.
    Am I wrong in saying that simply redirecting requests from you.blog.com to all.blog.com with a author filter in the URL wouldn't work?

    Check out the Alternative WordPress Projects section on the Codex page covering the installation of multiple blogs:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_Multiple_Blogs#Alternative_WordPress_Projects

    I think the vhost plugin listed there comes closest to what you're looking to do.

    RE: moshu's reply, seems another one to add to the list.

    Thanks for the (very) quick reply, the first sounds great, but then again, each author will be posting to the same categories.
    Do you think the second option will work?
    Like:

    Blog
    |Me
    ||Art
    ||Science
    ||History
    |You
    ||Art
    ||Science
    ||History
    |Him
    ||Art
    ||Science
    ||History

    Where the categories (Art, history, science) are synchronized between the authors?
