    Single or Multiblog Installation 2

    Later this year I would like to have set up a web page which leads to two blogs. Right now I need to create a website leading to one blog and with a second blog coming on line a few months after.

    To do this do i need the multiblog option now?
    Can I do a website and a blog with single, if so does this prevent me from adding the extra blog later?

    Many Thanks,

    Mark

    Hi Mark,

    Yes you can add multi-site later if you want to. It’s slightly technical but not too difficult . Here is a link to instructions http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network. I will be doing a tutorial on this in a couple of months :)

    There is also no harm in installing as a multi-site but only running your site as 1 site to start with.

    Thanks Jamie, very helpful.

    I have a further related question. Is it possible to have a separate domain name for the web page & each blog? Viewers could then either go through the website to each blog or direct to the blog using the separate domains.

    If so is Heart Internet able to facilitate this?

    Hi Mark,

    Yes it is possible to have a separate domain name for each sub blog in a multi-site install. Here are some instructions http://ottopress.com/2010/wordpress-3-0-multisite-domain-mapping-tutorial/.
