We've got a WordPress Multisite install.

Can you mix sites that use subdomains with sites that use paths?

And, if so, are there any guides to this?

The codex says you have to choose one option or the other. What might work is to choose the sub-directory option and then on your server (via cPanel or whatever control panel you have) setup some subdomains to point at those folders/urls.

I have not done any tests on this but that would be my approach.

Hope it helps!


You might see the solution on using Multi Network a plugin that will allow you to create multiple networks within your Multisite.

After you install you use the Path based Installation and if you ever need a subdomain you just create a new network with that domain.
