[resolved] Multiple blogs or categories and sub-categories? (5 posts)

    Hi all. I'm contemplating some changes to my site and right now I'm really liking what's going on at http://thepioneerwoman.com, for example. My question is how would I set up something like that? It appears that pioneerwoman.com is running multiple blogs on the site, one for each main topic - Confessions, Cooking, Photography, Home and Garden, etc. Is that the easiest way to do something like that, or can something similar be achieved by using categories and sub-categories? If I were to set up multiple blogs for different topics, would each blog require its own sql database?

    Thanks for your thoughts.
    Michelle

    You can put several blogs on one database, you just need to change the table name in the wp-configure file.
    I have five different blogs on my site.

    I'd go the category route - check Category_Templates for some notes on how your theme could give different categories variety.

    As to your multiple blogs question: Each blog needs its own set of tables. They can co-exist in one database or each can have its own. If in the same database, each install must have a different prefix configured in wp-config.php. Check Installing_Multiple_Blogs for more on that.
