[resolved] One blog, one podcast (3 posts)

    Noob question …

    I have the following setup currently ...

    • a paid unlimited hosting account
    • a domain
    • my original personal site at the top level of my /public_html/, incorporating a self-hosted podcast, using the domain
    • an existing WP installation for a basic blog, installed in a directory under /public-html/, using a path based subdomain (my.domain/blog)
    What I now want to finish up with is a single WP installation incorporating both the blog and the podcast, each with a path based subdomain (as well as other individual pages). I anticipate installing a plugin such as podpress to host the podcast.

    To achieve this as simply and functionally as possible, do I want to convert my existing WP installation to a multisite network? Or is there a better / simpler way of producing my desired result?

    You can install two separate blogs in different sub folders or you can install one blog (or use the existing blog) to create a network. There is a detailed decription on how-to create a network: http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

    If you install two separate blogs and you have only one data base then you need to choose for one of the blogs a different db table name prefix. The default prefix is wp_. Maybe choose wp2_ for the second blog.
    You can determine the prefix easily during the installation in the installation dialog.

    Thanks for replying. In the absence of earlier responses I ended up handing the job to my two geek sons, who got me setup eventually. I'm not geeked up on all the details, but I know it involved creating a unique taxonomy 'podcast' and linking it to podpress.

    Working fine (apart from a current feed mystery problem, which I've just posted about).
