    Try Skippy.net's vhost plugin for WP!!

    so you are saying that you don't want the categories to be the subdomain but you want the post-slug to be the subdomain.

    (post-slug is the alternate version of the title of a post)

    deeper look at this plugin - it's okay but for categories, I need this for posts plus automation of the creation of the vhosts<=>posts :)

    spamming tool in the making ?

    well a typical spam trackback site url looks something like this: buy-viagra-cheap.traumatic-brain-injury-lawyer.info which in some cases is traumatic-brain-injury-lawyer.info/buy-viagra-cheap.

    Anyway.. just curious about the purpose of creating subdomains from the post name. You care to share :)

    Thanks for the link about cheap viagra, but I have already supplied myself with a dozen of them :D

    I'm going to lounch a musician's (will keep it quiet before official release) fan site (wordpress powered) and I thought it will be better for my visitors to remember something like bio.singer.com, dicography.singer.com, album-name-albums(albumgs is the category).singer.com ... For first one I can use the plug in you gave me (thanks by the way;)), but for the 3rd one I'll need to use something else instead of this vhost plugin...

    Cool... I guess that if you could settle for category you'd all be set.. Ie. all your posts in the category "Bio" would then show up on bio.singer.com... I guess bio don't change to much (except the weight ;) but discography for example... every post about an album would have the album name as title and "discography" as category - result would be when you enter discography.singer.com you would then see all the albums on that page. Lyrics would be the same etc etc!! Good luck! (alternatively, you may be able to hack Skippy's plugin to go for post-slug instead ;)
