Support » Themes and Templates » main site issue

  • So I decided to take the multisite route for one of my sites.

    I am doing sub-directories.

    The site is like a sports league.

    Different cities across Canada.

    sportsleaguesite.com/vancouver
    sportsleaguesite.com/toronto
    sportsleaguesite.com/ottawa
    sportsleaguesite.com/halifax

    and so forth, obviously sportsleaguesite.com is not the real domain.

    I want to put on the main site sportsleaguesite.com, a clickable map where you click vancouver/toronto/ottawa/halifax and it goes to sportsleaguesite.com/cityyouclickedon.

    Each city will be independent, I just mantain the site, each city admin will blog/upload pics/etc… on their own city sub-directory.

    At first I wanted to just add a index.html site with an image map and have it done the sub-directories manually with their own WP installation but that would of been a lot more stress than I want/need.

    All I want on the main site is the png map and clickable cities. I can do the image map thing easily. How do I do it so no header/menu/sidebars appear and just the clickable map?

    Would the easiest thing be to look for a minimalistic map with no sidebars? or something else?

    In your child theme for the main site, you can create a file called home.php and just call the map, like don’t add get_header(), get_sidebar(), or get_footer().

    I installed WordPress
    I turned on Multisite
    I have Akismet
    I deleted Hello Dolly
    I have 2013 theme.

    I havent even added other cities yet, or if I am going to let each city have it’s own theme or just have all cities same theme, with just the logo for each city different.

    Honestly, none of this is a Multisite question. It’s a theme question.

    Forget Multisite 🙂 What you’re really asking is this:

    How do I make my front page be just a clickable map without any headers and sidebars?

    And that would be “You style your front-page.php file to not have them.”

    Or use a page template with the code, and make that the template for the page you pick as your front page 🙂

    If you need more help with that, I can move this to the theme forum where people would have better answers. I’m only good at tweaking and fixing themes, not really writing them from the ground up.

    For a second I was hoping that Multisite would have a “remove headers/menus/sidebars/footers” feature. Hence here. however please do move it to the theme section. Thank you. You are totally awesome.

    Moved. Remember, multisite is just WordPress on drugs 😉 Very little is different between multi and single when it comes to themes.
