WP-Universe

Description

WP-Universe creates a blog universe based on categories of a WordPress blog.

Blog universe is a WordPress blog which serves more than one domain/subdomain. WP-Universe does not require any coding/template editing
but automaticly handles the universe-creation. To explain the concept universe;

Let’s assume we have a blog – http://www.myblog.com – which is our main blog. Let’s say we have categories gaming, coding and life.
After enabling WP-Universe you can match categories to universe subdomains or domains;

Category Gaming -> http://gaming.myblog.com
Category Coding -> http://coding.myblog.com
Category Life -> http://life.myblog.com

With a simple configuration your universe will be;

  • http://www.myblog.com – Main Blog / Universe / Serves all content from all categories
  • http://gaming.myblog.com – Gaming Universe; will just serve content from GAMING category and it’s subcategories.
  • http://coding.myblog.com – Coding Universe; will just serve content from CODING category and it’s subcategories.
  • http://life.myblog.com – Life Universe; will just serve content from LIFE category and it’s subcategories.

Demos & Sites Using

Installation

  • Upload WP-Universe to your blog’s wp-content/plugins directory
    • Activate the plugin
    • Goto category managment and for each category you want to be served as sub-universes, put URL of sub-universe to categories description field.
    • Enable/Redirect subdomain/domain to your WordPress installation.

To better understand step 3;

  • Let’s say we got our blog at http://www.myblog.com and have a category named WordPress. We want it to be served as http://wordpress.myblog.com
  • Goto category managment [Managment/Category Menu under WordPress Adminstration]
  • Find WordPress category and click it to edit.
  • Write http://wordpress.myblog.com to description field of the category and click “Edit Category”
  • Add a subdomain using your hosting control panel/dns controller to your default IP.

That’s it!
