Features

This plugin allows you to manage multiple websites from a single installation of October CMS (the websites share plugins and databases/user accounts but have their own theme and static content). This is great for offering multiple theme demos and a convenient way to host multiple of your own (static) websites.

For more advanced options (like using different databases for a single installation) please see the October docs about domain driven environments. You do not need to use this or any other plugin for that but it does require you to write some configuration files. This plugin is intended to allow a simple multisite setup with zero configuration or with a configuration at plugin level.

NOTE: Please beware of the legal restrictions for paid plugins! You need either a Regular license for each site or an Extended license.

Installation

To install from the Marketplace, click on the "Add to Project" button and then select the project you wish to add it to before updating the project in the backend of your website to pull in the plugin.

To install from the backend, go to Settings -> Updates & Plugins -> Install Plugins and then search for Briddle.Multisite.

Getting started

  1. Install Briddle.Multisite
  2. Create an alias on your server (cPanel/Plesk) for your existing October CMS website. This can be either a subdomain or a domain or you can use a wildcard.
  3. Simply use the default automagic configuration (see below) or overwrite the site configuration by creating a configuration file config.php inside the folder /plugins/briddle/multisite/config.

Example configuration file

<?php
return [
    'sites' => [
        [
            'host' => 'demo.briddle.nl',
            'theme' => 'briddle-demo'
        ]
    ]
];

Automagic configuration [NEW]

If the 'sites' array is empty or the configuration file does not exist (as is the default setup), the plugin tries to guess the configuration based on the current host URL.

For example, if the current host URL is "test.mysite.com", and a theme with the name "test-mysite-com" is found, this theme will be used for that host URL without the need to specify it in your plugin's config.php (or anywhere else).

If no theme is found, the normal active theme will be used.

Using the backend

You can simply navigate to the October CMS backend from the (sub)domain you want to make changes on. The correct theme will also be selected in the CMS section. All websites share plugins and databases (and thus user accounts) but have their own theme (and thus static content).

Any user of website A will also be able to login on website B (and vice versa) but you can restrict the plugins they can use.

NOTE: For more advanced options (like using different databases for a single installation) please see the October docs about domain driven environments. You do not need to use this or any other plugin for that but it does require you to write some configuration files. This plugin is intended to allow a simple multisite setup with zero configuration or with a configuration at plugin level.

    Hi rockstarnow (I like that name),

    Thank you for your review! Please note that any questions should be asked in the Product Support section (just below the "Add to project" button on the left side of the plugin page. This allows me to keep questions organised and receive notifications when you reply to my reply. It also allows other users to benefit from what has already been asked.

    Like I mentioned in the Features chapter at the very top of the Details tab on the plugin page:

    "This plugin allows you to manage multiple websites from a single installation of October CMS (the websites share user accounts and plugins but have their own theme and content)."

    Thank you!
