Combining 2 multisites (3 posts)

    OK. So i have a problem, or sort of.

    I am going to buy a blogportal and then combine it into my blogportal. And there are some issues i am wondering about and how to do.

    The main install that blogs are going to be imported to is a SUBDOMAIN site. The one i am buying is a SUBFOLDER site.

    How do i combine these?

    Also i want them to have the domain on their new blog. So what i think is the solution is to ADD a network. is this the correct plugin to use?

    so i want to have this setup. And having users being able to register to these domains:

    at the registration page. how do i do this?

  2. Let me make up a couple constants to confuse us all later ;)

    portaldomain.com - The 'main' site which will run everything. Has subsites of site.portaldomain.com

    portalfolder.com - The acquired site, which is going to be moved into portaldomain.com, which already has sites like portalfolder.com/sitename

    Now that we have that... if you want people to map domains, that's pretty easy: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/

    However I'm pretty sure you can't map a site that's 'nested' (which is what the networks plugin would do).

    Do you have to keep the portalfolder structure? You could just redirect all of those to sitename.portaldomain.com ? Because if they want to map domains, it'll be a nightmare.

    i want the portalfolder.com to become sitedomain.com

    so users can create a blog and then choose the domain they want to register with...

    Like daddybloggers.com and mombloggers.com but its the same site all together. Do you see where i am going?
