WordPress Multi Blogs

Lots of ideas flying around the web: 1, 2, 3 by Matt, 4, 5, 6

I like the thin layer approach advocated by Ruben the best. I spent the last 2 nights attempting to coax WP into inserting a %wpblog% variable into the URL but it’s too intrusive and it’ll make tracking official releases of WordPress more difficult. Right now, my work is a “hack” on top of WP and I don’t want to spend time duplicating what other WP developers will do in the future.
When can you expect something from all this work? Maybe as early as next week! Keep yer eyes peeled!

What I got working last night:
I have two blogs, a “main” and a “test” one. Each has seperate tables and templates. I can display the weblog fine, dig down into categories and posts too. I haven’t tried commenting on a story yet.
All this is achieved without symlinking any files in the “wp-blogs/main” or “wp-blogs/test” directories!
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to display the backend reliably yet. It’s a matter of writing the correct mod_rewrite rules I’m sure but that’s a pain and takes a lot of trial and error in my experience.
So, yes, still on track for an alpha-release next week! 🙂

I am Arunkumar Just got this post while googling..

I am just searching for multiple blogs under one single installation of wordpress blog . The multiple bloggers getting registered must have their own themes and own database and own admin control.. Please suggest any idea regarding this.
Thank you..
