different url within site? (5 posts)

    Here's what I'm trying to do:
    When I click on my store menu item, it links to a different url, but keeps the exact same wp formatting (plugins, settings, theme, etc) as my original site. So visually it's identical, it's just a different url.

    How can I do this? Is there something obvious that I'm missing?

    What is your URL?

    it doesn't matter what my websites are... say http://www.website.com and http://www.shop.com

    I want them both to be managed by the same wp theme, plugins, settings, etc.

    Possible or not?

    I want to say "no", but you might be able to do it with some careful .htaccess trickery. You might introduce some significant load time lag even if you got it working though.

    If you can connect to your MySQL server remotely you might be able to setup both sites to use the same DB.

    If you have the ability to setup MySQL server replication you might be able to get it working by setting up two independent sites and replicating the database across them.

    There are a lot of values in the database that could be problematic though. I am not sure if either idea is any good.

    Good point about the load time. Even if I can set it up, it's possibly not the best idea and looks like it's going to be a lot of hassle. I think I might look into other options. Thanks for your input.
