Multi Site

Build Status

Created by Sean Cribbs, November 2007. Inspired by the original virtual_domain behavior.

Multi Site allows you to host multiple websites on a single Radiant installation.

Each site has its own independent sitemap/page-tree and these attributes:

name: Whatever you want to call the site domain: A Ruby regular expression (without the //) to match the request against base_domain: A canonical domain name for doing quicker matches and for generating absolute URLs against homepage_id: The numerical database ID of the root page (usually you can just leave this alone).

Included images are slightly modified from FamFamFam Silk Icons by Mark James: http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/silk/

Other Extensions

Multi Site allows you to customize routes within your other extensions. To restrict a route to a particular site, pass the site's name into the conditions hash:

map.resources :things, :conditions => { :site => 'My Site' }

You can also scope a route to multiple sites with an array:

map.resources :things, :conditions => { :site => ['My Site', 'Your Site'] }
