Doing my head over this for days... want to run 2 sites very similar in the same language sharing the same database. Looked at a couple of options like share database and sharing just content but it looks like I am after the features offered in the multilingual capability. I say this because both sites need to very similar minus some pages in the second site and a few odd changes to content. But news, blogs, lists etc will be the same. There is a small comms team so I would like it to be easy for them and update all in the one admin interface. I thought I could default one site to one language and the other to the other one and I'd be in business.
Spun up a site with english and french to confirm... looks promising BUT I don't think it is possible to run 2 english versions this way by the looks of it? I change the fr to en-AU so in the config it had "en, en-AU" (sites are in Australia). But returning to the admin interface it just has "English" in the language drop down and not both "English" and "English (Australia)" as I had hoped.
Can this be done or am I off my rocker?
