I’m a new registered user but I’ve been reading and learning from this WordPress Support Forum for some time now. Thank you for that.
This time I have to reach out for some help myself because I haven’t found anything addressing my problem.
I’ve drawn a graphic to illustrate what I would like to accomplish:
As you can see, I would like two domains to look like totally different pages from a visitor’s pont of view, but share a common WordPress Installation (author’s point of view). What’s most important is that both different domains should share part of the content.
(NOT?) POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS
– I’ve already been prompted with a WordPress MU installation, but in that case content is not shared and the same theme would be installed in both blogs (being able only to change the CSS through a plugin).
– I’ve also been told about a plugin that switches templates but I don’t know about this, and I would like to avoid the use of plugins if possible.
– I’ve been thinking about creating a custom template with a loop that filters by category. That would be fine for the “home” of domainTWO.com but, what about all other links to other “categories”? They would revert to the base index template if I don’t create a template for each of them too… this is getting too fussy.
Does anyone know how to address this problem? Have you tried it yourself? Is there something in WordPress codex that I’m missing?
Thank you in advanced!
