The Willis Tree - now with WP!

Recommended Posts

I finally succeeded in creating a WP/TNG integration which I like - and would love feedback and comments from other TNG users...

Looks very good.

Can you give a quick outline of how this was done design-wise?

I've been mulling this for some time, but haven't had the time to sit and really get it done, but I also have to decide how/where to do this.

I already have a WordPress at http://LisaAndRoger.com/

My TNG, and my wife's TNG both live on sub-domains quite separate from my blog site.

I think it makes sense to somehow combine it all, but then I do like the idea of keeping my stuff separate from genealogy - ie the genealogy site/blog shouldn't be interrupted by pictures of cute baby birds and huge tractors working in the paddock behind our house, so I'm still trying to wrap my head around a plan for this all.

Roger,

What you want to do is create a Multi-Site Wordpress installation.

http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

Then it's simple as you have two diff wordpress 'sites' that can use the same database and either be run like 2 distinctly different sites (diff themes, plugins etc) or 2 alike sites that use the same themes, plugins etc OR a combination of both!
