Sharing some pages between 2 installs

  • Hello,

    I’m planning on having a double installation, ( with different database tables ) one for the english site and one for the french site.

    Most content will be totally separated ( like the news section, an ‘articles’ section, themes, options…)

    *BUT* I would like some pages to be shared between the two.
    I will have a ‘tutorials’ page that should be shared between the installs. Meaning the theme, headers and stuff should belong to each site, but the content would be stored only in one place.

    How can I do this ?

    Is it possible to tell a page that its content is actually stored elsewhere ?
    If I could ‘redirect’ that page content (and only the content) to static html I think it would solve my problem.

    thanks in advance !

    If you set up to different databases, the easiest way is to write a script, which takes parts of the one database and update the other database with it.

    Like take post 1 and update post 3 in db2 with it, then take post 7 and update post 4 in db2 with it…

    If you use the Gengo plugin, you don’t need two installs:

    (although the “shared” content would be a bit tricky…)

    Thank you very much for the quick support.
    I wasn’t aware of Gengo, I’ll definitely give it a try and see if I can tweak it to my needs.
    Thanks !
