How to get multiple wordpress users and multiple URLs?

6 replies
Hi,

I am not sure if this can be done ,,, but I have been looking at posting several of my sites onto a great blog.

the only trouble is that it only uses a wordpress log on, and I only have one wordpress site, with the associated URL.

Is it possible to have multiple Wordpress users (without creating multiple dummy blogs), with each one pointing to a URL of my choosing (not just a wordpress site url).

    I thought I could figure out every WP related question... even when the person asking it has no idea what is he asking

    Well, I was wrong: I have no idea what are you trying to do.

    Can you explain the relation between "Wordpress users" & "dummy blogs" & "non-wordpress site urls"???
    (hint: there is none)

        Ok, say I have ten sites that I want to get links for.

        I want to get links FROM some sites in particular (in my niche), but their comments app ONLY allows a WORDPRESS logon.

        I only have ONE wordpress site and the other sites COMMENT apps always bring up the username and the associated URL. Clearly if I want to get links for my other nine sites that are not wordpress, there is a problem here.

        Can you create a wordpress blog and not use it, and have whatever URL you want associated with the USERNAME for wordpress?

        This may not be possible, but I have to ask. No I am not a big wordpress user, but the restriction of the target blogs means that I am trying to find a work around ... just to place comments.

    Like Istvan, I think your question might have been better phrased. However, I think you are asking if you could use a single Wordpress site to act as a CMS for multiple domains.

    If that is your question, the answer is no.

    If you simply want to have multiple users posting to different blogs within your domain, the answer is yes. You can do it with with the Multi-user facility (these days, I think it is called WPMU).

    Finally: although, I don't think you are asking this, I'll add it for completeness, you can have multiple users all posting to the same blog no problem at all.

    Hope that helps a bit.

    Let say, you have 10 sites, one is WordPress and the rest are not.
    You have a auto comments apps that only allowed for a WordPress powered site to log on. You want to make comments for all domains. How?

    --
    Case One:
    Just install WordPress on the other 9 domains within some sub directory and redirect to each main site. If you can have different login, you can make different comments for each site.

    Case Two:
    One wordPress for all comments?
    Yes that possible but require advance WordPress knowledge since it will be dealing with database and possibly with the WordPress core itself along with its theme.

    I have the impression you are talking about wordpress.COM sites... that's why it's confusing: nobody should use them for commercial purposes (read the TOS).

    As for different sites recognizing you, the answer is "cookies".
