Multi site across 5 different domains? (7 posts)

    I'm looking to build a membership site for 5 local online magazines. Each magazine covers a different town but has a cross over of readers.

    We own 5 different domains:

    http://www.mag1.com
    http://www.mag2.com ect.

    How could we link the five domains to one membership database? I.e when someone signs up (using a premium membership plugin) on one website they can access the other sites with the same login details

    That's how you get all domains in one install. they're all in the same webhosting account.

    Thanks Andrea, I should have explained in more detail.

    I'm wanting each magazine website to be slightly different. I.E logos and contact will be different.

    What I'm wanting is to link the membership, so if someone becomes a user of mag1.com they can also log into mag2.com.

    with multisite and wordpress-mu-domain-mapping plugin, each blog you create in wordpress will have its on setup, plugins, themes etc.
    you will have a main site, and a whole bunch of sub-sites, but with their own domain.
    Any user registrations or signups, will be to the main site, and you can set it up so that a registration to the main one, means a registration to all the sub-sites.

    That's fine. You can do that with MultiSite :) That's exactly how it works.

    Ditto. You're covered :)

  6. each blog you create in wordpress will have its on setup, plugins, themes etc.

    Each blog you create has access to all the same themes and plugins, because they are *shared* but controlled on a per site basis.

    /clarification

    :D

    Cool. Sorry to be a pain but what does that mean for frontend modules.

    I'm thinking of using this on my other website. Which will contain most of the same website on three different domains.

    But it includes a frontend (only) client area. When I make changes to this area I presume I would have to make it on all the websites? Or would there be a way to link all the sites to one but show the site on all domains.

    I.e one website but it displays if you type example.com or example.co.uk or example.co ect but is lunked and updated by one install.
