We are running Sitefinity 3.7 and are trying to accomplish the following and are looking for the best practice method to accomplish this with sitefinity.
-- 1 sitefinity database
-- multiple subdomains (different sites under the licensed domain)
-- each subdomain could have a different theme
-- each subdomain could have unique pages, or pages that would be shared from subdomain to subdomain
-- if we need to create a new subdomain that is a "copy" of an existing subdomain with a new theme, can it simply "share" the pages and apply a different theme based on the URL
-- able to restrict content management by individual module
** each subdomain should only be able to alter content to be displayed for that subdomain, but NOT modify content from other subdomains
-- ability to restrict users (using the sitefinity membership provider) to have access to specific subdomains, but NOT all of them
-- simplistic deployment, only 1 database and 1 website, but the ability to accomplish this. Or, do we need 1 database, but we have different websites for the frontend and backend (sitefinity administration) but again sharing the 1 database?
