Thanks for the quick response and here is what I’m trying to do. I have an organization “xxx” that I would like to split up into sections: “public”, “students”, “instructors”, etc … and would like my access/web sites to be: “public.xxx.com”, “students.xxx.com”, “instructors.xxx.com”, etc …
For the most part, the information belongs to one “authoritative” section/site. There is however sections that will need to contain section specific information. What is the best practice or recommended solution for this type of Sitefinity project?
The problem I’m having with the sub domain solution is that I’m having problems getting them to work and look like I want. In my project, I have a couple pages Page Type set to Page Group: “public”, “student”, and “instructor”, each with default pages. My URLs end up looking like: “public.xxx.com/public/default.aspx”, “students.xxx.com/students/default.aspx”, and “instructor.xxx.com/instructor.aspx”, instead of what I want them to be: “public.xxx.com”, “students.xxx.com”, and “instructors.xxx.com” respectfully.
I am also starting to look at sharing the database between Sitefinity projects. Again, what is Telerik’s best practice for this kind of site? Is it the shared database or the sub domain solution?
