    Is it possible to install two blogs in one installation?
    and show the different blogs on the dashboard..?

    some kind of multi-blog management-system?

    yeah! But does it work with many of the wordpress plugins, cause I use about 10 of them, and I've also made a custom theme.. Perhaps I'll just try it out and tell you how it worked XD

    thanks (:

    Hi again!

    I tried WordPress MU, and it worked almost as I wanted:
    I didn't manage to make the "homepage" as a blog, and it didn't support all the plugins I use. And I didn't understand how I was able to publish posts on a specific blog... but I guess perhaps I would understand if I used more time on it XD

    I only want two blogs and only me as an admin/editor/writer, so I don't know if MU is the right tool for me.

    The only thing I want is two seperate blogs, with seperate themes and seperate posts/pages/categories/archives. without login on two different places.

    I tried setting up a unified login, but I didn't achieve to setup using a shared user database. I kept getting this error, when I tried to log in:

    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    after adding this:

    define('CUSTOM_USER_TABLE','wp_users');
    define('CUSTOM_USER_META_TABLE','wp_usermeta');

    when I removed it the login works perfectly, but that is the code to use the same user database.. ;\

    I have on database, two tables and one for each wp. prefix is wp_ and wp2_.

    It's installed locally using xampp (maybe that has something to do with it?)
    I want to use sub directories for both, but I want one of them to have the root (http://my.domain.net) as blog address (and the sub directory as wordpress address (http://my.domain.net/wordpress/))
