What, in your opinion, is the best way to setup a network of WP sites with a shared login?

  • I want users to stay logged in to their account when they switch sites
  • I want this to be used with different domains

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for WordPress developers and administrators.

Ehm, multisite? I am not sure if this is very basic, or I am missing details. – Rarst Oct 24 '11 at 19:04

What you're asking for is very easy with this plugin: http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/domain-mapping/ It does cross-domain cookie syncing with all of your sites on one Multisite installation.

I've used this a couple times and it works dandy.

As @Rarst mentioned above, is anything wrong with setting up WordPress as a Multisite see the Codex Here.
