  • Resolved AQuickQuestion


    Hi all,

    I have two separate content areas on my site — a first-person blog under and a newsletter area under

    I’ve been running two separate WP instances. Is it possible to use multisite for both? When I looked at the documentation, it said that you had to choose subdomains or directories.

    Your assumption is correct, BUT, he asked for

    1) a first-person blog under

    2) a newsletter area under

    The only way to get to #1 is to make a third blog.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for your help. I finally got around to trying it and the three site methods works.

    All the best
