[resolved] How-to for creating second blog on a new domain in order to use with MLS (2 posts)

    Hi there,

    I have a blog in german language. I set up now the multisite thing, and installed MLS. My second blog should mirror the first one in english language via a different domain name. For that I use the domain mapping plugin.

    Now, question is how best to proceed. Should I export my existing website, create a fresh wordpress site on the new server, and import the export-file from there? Or re-start from scratch only and add the translated article one by one? There are cloning plugins too, which I could use.

    I guess I have to "Add New Site" with a link to the other domain name, too?

    Thanks for any hints.

    BTW: Actually, I haven't yet understood how the MLS deals with images which is to be used on the two blogs. Do I have to upload it two times? Or just linking to the server it has been uploaded to?

    it depends. You can clone the first blog if you want to translate the complete site anyway. I used the second approach and added translation by translation (when finished).

    The Multisite Language Switcher doesn't deal with the images in the blogs. I'm not sure if this should be a task of the plugin. If you want to use just one directory, you can try something like that: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3202865/wordpress-3-multisite-with-same-medialibrary
