WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'd like to run a WordPress install with open registration so that anyone can sign up and post to a custom post type that would live at... domain.com/open/date/the-post-title

I'd also like to run a blog on the same WP install that only I can post to that would live at... domain.com/blog/date/the-post-title

Is something like this possible without running MultiSite (which I believe would force the blog to live at blog.domain.com)?

Thanks.

Is something like this possible without running MultiSite (which I believe would force the blog to live at blog.domain.com)?

Not quite. There are two basic modes multisite installation can operate in:

  • sub-domains ( site.domain.com )
  • sub-directories ( domain.com/site )

As far as I remember in subdirectory installation main blog is also forced to have /blog/ at start of permalinks for compatbility.

So for your requirements sub-directory install with main blog at domain.com (posts at domain.com/blog/) and additional blog at domain.com/open/ seems to fit.

Didn't know that MultiSite had a subdirectory option. Thanks Rarst. –  Eddie Rendini Jan 2 '11 at 18:19
