    After watching the webinar:

    How to create new content types using Generic Content Module

    I had some ideas about sharing content across databases to address some architecture issues.

    We are setting up a group of sub-domains within our school and would like some unique content and some share.
    One example is News.

    I.E. three Sitefinity sites - news.domain.edu, dept1.domain.edu, dept2.domain.edu

    I changed the provider settings on dept1 and dept2 so they are looking at News content from the db of news.domain.edu

    Text comes in great and I could edit news items from any of the sites, however a SitefinityImage will not resolve, since it is looking at the dept1's [Libraries].

    Is there a way that I could change the image provider on all three sites, so that it uses [MyLibraries] instead only for for News, but not for other Generic Content types?

    I would also like to do a similar thing for events, which probably does not need images, but could need documents.

    This concept works for images in a secondary provider for Libraries and the Gallery control, but there doesn't seem to be a way to alter provider for the single image control.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

    Hello Scott,

    You could take a look at this forum post - create a provider to share content from one site to another
