Had a long chat with Barry this morning... :slight_smile:
I have domain1, domain2, domain3…. domain600
Each of these domains expands into subdomains… sub1.dom1, sub2.dom2, sub1.dom2, sub2.dom2, etc.
Right now, my plan is to do one multi-site install with all the domains… but if recommended I could create multiple multi-site networks.
Let’s assume for now that all domains and subdomains are open for reading. Let’s assume if I want a really private subscribe only set of domains, I’ll just create them on a separate install, requiring a separate password and separate payment. Not ideal, but I’ll do it.
I want to be able to say to the user, “If you want the ability to post to domains 1, 2 and 3, and all their subdomains, pay $10 a month. If you want to post to domains 4,5 and 6, pay $15 a month. If you want to post to all of the domains, pay $25 per month.”
How would we do this?
Now here is something we got working manually with multi-site:
Take domain1 only. Suppose there are two users, each of whom makes 5 posts. When user 1 logs in, he sees only HIS recent posts in the sidebar, not the posts of the other person. Ditto for the other user #2, he does not see the posts of user #1. Even though they share the same domain, they each see only their own posts after they are logged in.
So we want to extend this functionality throughout multisite. If you are a paid user with posting access to all domains, you will only see your own posts as you move across the domains and subdomains in the network. This is configured in the sidebar.php, correct? At the very least, we should be able to do this with multi-site, correct?
If my consolation prize is “all or nothing” meaning that right now your plugins won’t allow me to segment domain post privileges… can I at least have a paid membership site where you have read and post access to all domains, but 1. you will only see your own posts and 2. Different membership levels have different levels of plugin access?
