[resolved] Multisite or a new domain? (3 posts)

    I'm wondering if I should create a new site with multisite or just with a whole new domain. So it actually boils down to the question if its worth all the trouble setting up multisite. I'm unexperienced with multisite so I'm not quite sure what the pro's and con's

    I have a news site, but I want to create a different magazine site for the longer background articles. The new site will have a different theme and the content won't overlap. Does anybody have advice?

    I'd suggest checking out this WordCamp presentation http://wordpress.tv/2013/08/01/mika-epstein-dont-use-wordpress-multisite/ or at least quickly see the presentation slides at https://speakerdeck.com/ipstenu/dont-use-wordpress-multisite.

    Unless both sites have the same user base I'd suggest using separate sites. Your users will also notice that the site is part of a network.
