thanx Tom,

the xhtml problem is new : the p tag that is "not allowed" is inside a javascript variable...

don't know what to do about this, except putting all javascript in a .js file, but then i'll have to pass the smarty variables...

btw, is multisite functional in jojo ? and how should it be setup ?

multi-site was something Harvey was working on, but he's in the middle of moving to Ireland so I suspect it'll be a ways off.

Like most community projects I imagine, we tend to do changes to Jojo as and when we need them for particular jobs (like putting in article/gallery categories for elsewhere.co.nz or fixing the multi-language handling for www.ahipara.com ) and we haven't had a need for multi-site yet.

Or we add things in downtime that are of personal interest/annoyance but there hasn't been much downtime lately :)

I use the multi-site feature all the time. I have one single installation, and 10-20 sites running off that installation. Everything works beautifully.

I use it with a reseller hosting account, so that my master account is on the same server as the root installation, allowing me to setup sites on any domain.

I am happy to outline the file structure and setup, but have to run at the moment. I will post a detailed description later.

ah... ok :)
there are two approaches to multi-site

like lynchpin describes, all of our sites run off one install of Jojo (pointed to in the config file for each site), and most of the plugins for the sites off a single repository of jojoplugins (using symbolic links from the plugins folder of each site)
this way any improvements/fixes to jojo and the plugins are passed on to all the sites, and it makes managing them much easier.

the approach Harvey was working on is for multiple domains within a site - so a home page for example under one domain, and sub sections under that with their own domains, but the ability to share logic/content across all of them.
At the moment any site install (the site itself, not Jojo) is restricted to using one domain throughout.
Harvey has already built in the ability to use different domains for assets (so that videos etc can be hosted elsewhere), and site pages can cope with transferring between http and https under a single domain, but that's it.

We have a project coming up that may need it - a home page under a .com, and sub sites for regional offices under regional domains.
Rather than creating individual site installs for each and duplicating all shared content and templates, and having to update content individually for each sub-site every time a global change is required, it would be cleaner if they could all sit within one site install.
With any luck, Mike will be so excited by the technical challenge of it all that he'll just whip it up for the hell of it..

Glouk-
Are you looking for the method I described or what Tom described?

Lynchpin,
I guess i'm looking for the method you described. Simple one site / one domain setup.

if you've got the time to describe it for me...

thanx

I was thinking of how to describe it, and all you really need to do is change where the config.php file looks for the jojo folder.
As long as your domains are on the same server, just point it to the appropriate location.
The mysite folder could go anywhere, as long as you know the path to it.
