Multiple Blogs - in one database (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I searched:
    http://search.wordpress.org/multiple+blog

    And there's no satisfactory answer.

    Seems the recommended solution is the inelegant hack of having WP installed nn times with nn separate wp_config.php files for each turn.

    This leads to the following questions:

    1. Can I have a unified interface for all the blogs I so install?

    2. How about searching: when a user searches my site, how can I make sure all blogs are included and the URLs constructed in search results are correct?

    I hope this is a priority in the next release but would appreciate some thoughts about the above.

    Probably the best place to look for multiblog would be the MU WP

    I am afraid multiple blogs are not a priority - as it's stated on the first page of this site: WP is a "personal" publishing tool...

    Well yes, but even a single user may want multiple blogs because different sections of my site can have totally different layouts. Can I have different layouts based on categories?

    You certainly can have Category Templates, to style different parts of your site as you wish.

    To have different lyaoit for different sections you don't need X number of blogs. Yes, different layout based on categories is possible:
