I know the question is asked alot of times, but what I am trying to create is a network under the same site.
example.com a.example.com b.example.com a.b.example.com
and it goes on. With example.com being the main site, some of the subdomains will be redirecting to ceratin categories of post from main site, some more will be redirecting to a site with toaly different theme from main site and custom functions. One more site being shop and one central place to edit profile with all details.
I wants users to be synced between all site. Should I use multisite or use bridges with different site for each ? The network is going to be something like stackexchange, just that its not a q and a site.
The site will be a tech site, providing news, forums, tutorials, plugins by site and etc. The only thing all the sites will share commonly is the color scheme and maybe the top header.
It's not completely a WP dependent site, through as far as I have mapped out, WP has more roles in it and it is also easy for me to write plugins for majority of the site.
diply.com is one example for posts. tomshardware on forums.
Is there something already out there for wordpress ? even if not, can I achieve it with wordpress as base ?
