Multi blogs on one website (5 posts)

    I am new to WP and have decided to create my website using it as I like the look and feel.

    I do have a question though if I may.

    I would like to have more than one blog running at a time - i.e. UK holidays & overseas holidays. with the ability to update either vie e-mail postings.

    is it possible to create a post via email and choose which blog it will be added too without having to log into the Website and post directly into the page?

    Hope that makes sense.

    YOu can install multiple instances of WP if you like

    You can sort posts categorically by content type if you like

    Or, you can set up a network

    Also, the jetpack plugin includes all sorts of handy bells and whistles, but the most recent update made it pretty easy to post by email, might wanna give that a look!

    Thanks Rev,

    but ......... I'm not sure if my explanation was poor or if I'm being a dimbo!!

    On my single WP Website, I want to run two blogs on seperate pages, as mentioned, and post to the seperate bolgs/pages via email postings from my phone.

    i.e have two pages for the seperate blogs on the one installation and post as appropriate.

    The create a network option should do exactly what you want.

    Yeah... I mean, you could try to do it with just one install. Setting up 2 pages to query posts based on certain criteria... maybe using a custom post type or something, or categories.

    One page could display all posts but the category/CPT and one page could show only the certain category/CPT

    The one thing I'm not sure about is if posts can be sent to a specific category/post type via email - I've never done such.

    This would get what you want (I think) all within a single install
