Two languages using MU / Network in WordPress 3.0 (1 post)

    Hi,

    I have my own WordPress blog since 2006 now. It is in English and WordPress uses the root directory of the server. Works like a charm.

    Now, I want to use the MU / Network feature of WordPress which is possible in v3.0 ( http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network ). I would like to combine the subdomain with the the sub-directory feature to build two new blogs that use a different language for the same content, i.e.

    subdomain.domain.com/de/ should become the German blog and
    subdomain.domain.com/en/ should become the English one.

    The old WordPress blog should remain under domain.com, though - I still want to maintain it.

    I like the idea of using the multiple blog feature, as I do not have to mingle with plugins.

    Can anyone tell me how to achieve the described goal? I've just read that the subdirectory feature doesn't work with blogs older than a month... see "Create A Network... it says:

    You cannot choose Sub-directory Install in the following cases:

    * If your existing WordPress installation has been set up for more than a month, due to issues with existing permalinks. (This problem will be fixed in a future version.)

    Thanks in advance!
