Connections Business Directory
[resolved] Multisite Question (2 posts)

    We are planning a multi-site directory that would be regional and each region would be a top-level category in the directory. For example, http://kansas.our-site.com/barbers would be listings of entries in the Barbers category in Kansas and http://utah.our-site.com/barbers would be listings of entries in the Barbers category in Utah.

    Before we get started, we would like to know if this is a good fit for this plugin and if you have any specific configuration suggestions (like tags vs categories?).

    Yes, Connections should be well suited for this. My only thought is that since each region will be a subsite seems kind of heavy and will be harder to maintain.

    Here's how I would do it on a single site.

    Create a page for you directory home page, we'll just it "Directory" for this example.
    Input your entries, taking care to be consistent with the state names.
    Now, using the Custom Link feature on the Menus admin page create the region menus using URL/s like so:
    our-site.com/directory/cat/barbers/region/kansas
    our-site.com/directory/cat/barbers/region/utah

    The URL/s will automatically filter the list on the directory home page to be in the barber category in Kansas and Utah respectively.
