Sharing one dbase (same blog content) on a few domains (4 posts)

    I want to share content of one blog (dbase) on a few different sites so I dont have to go to each site and ad the same content manually. Blog content would be the same on all 3 different sites.

    I tried to set up the same dbase access and used a different prefix but that is just like creating a new dbase.

    Please help

    If you're trying to draw the same content, you'd want to be grabbing stuff from the same database in all the places you want the content to be displayed.

    could you just create different wp-options tables (using different table names) and then change the local settings file for each installation to name $wpdb->options properly for the relevant installation?

    that should stop the url options from confusing things.

    If these are all public locations, wouldn't this pose duplicate/triplicate content issues with search engines? I'd think that giving the same blog post 4 different urls could be problematic on that score.

    How about using subdomains with 301 redirects?

    myblog.siteone(.)com
    myblog.sitetwo(.)com
    myblog.sitethree(.)com

    permanent redirects on each of the above urls to

    myblog(.)com

    The ability to navigate back to the source, I'd think, would require at least one custom home button that directed to an original referrer url. Maybe that could be tied into a session cookie?

    Also, displaying content in more than one place is one thing, but I'm guessing that editing the dynamic database (ie. with the addition of a comment) would require a multi user interface.
