I am trying to figure out if a WordPress multisite is what I need to get the effect I am looking for, so I thought I would explain what I am trying to do, and see what you guys think.
I am trying to make a bunch of different sites with the same topic that are hosted on the same server and have the same main domain, but some will be subdomains ie. webname.com + one.webname.com + two.webname.com etc.
I am using a theme that makes use of custom post types, and I want the "one.webname.com" and "two.webname.com" sites to have unique posts in those categories. I then want the main domain to pull in the custom posts and display all of them automatically in one category (or on one page). I assume you would do this with a shared database, but it's a bit beyond me.
Is this all a terrible idea? Is there a much better way to do it, or would this be a WP Multisite? Thanks for any help.
