Movable type has a similar feature.

You can run multiple blogs from one DB. Share skins and other resources.

I presently run four MT blogs for myself and a few friends from one install.

Twenty years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs.

 

Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. PLEASE! Don't let Kevin Bacon die.

If this feature existed, I would definitely buy more licenses. Think about this, IPS!

I believe this could be something that could POSSIBLY be on the drawing board for IPB. I could be completely wrong but, maybe they are even just discussing it and seeing how other people made it work, etc. .


Either way I hope they do look into maybe trying to find a way to make it work because I'd definitely buy more licenses.

I would also love this, and can easily say I would buy 5+ more licences to do it, maybe many more, at the moment I am having difficulty in figuring out how to set up my new idea's with the fact it all needs to be on 1 site for it to work seamlessly. As IP.Converge just doesn't cut it for what I have in mind.

No, as all members would have access to all area's. But with a potential of 20+ categories, each having 20+ sub categories, and each having hundreds of potential forums, 1 site is just not going to work in the long run, its going to be too congested.

My current site, which is just a hobby kind of site, only covers one small area of what I am hoping to achieve in the long run, It is literally just 1 sub category of my overall idea. Which currently has over 110 forums.

For me, my ideal set up would be.

mainsite.com
cat1.mainsite.com
cat2.mainsite.com
cat3.mainsite.com
cat4.mainsite.com
cat5.mainsite.com

Each only showing their set category, but all being able to work together so to speak.

I did look at converge, but that just doesn't do enough for it to work.

One major feature that I desperately need for my sites is the ability to share forums between websites.

Cerberus for vbulletin does this. Internet Brands uses it on their forums. It shows the same members online for multiple websites, and allows the admin to mix and match forums, groups, blogs, CMS content, etc. Only one backend to update for many websites makes it easy to manage a network.

I would love to see something like this for IPS.

I'm a late comer to this conversation, but I'd definitely be purchasing multiple licenses if this feature were available. 

 

There is a plugin available for vBulletin: http://www.vbulletin...ad.php?t=254197

With mix n match content I mean that I can choose which forums, (...) I show on which site.


We have something like this for one of the forums we host. Is something like this what you mean?

http://klikk.no/forum/barnimagen
http://klikk.no/forum/dinbaby

If you look at the forum list you can see that they're different depending on what url you view it from after the top list. The default skin is also different depending on what url you visit it from.

(The forums at the top are the same for both urls / shared, so be sure to look beneath those and compare the sites)

Yes, if this can be done on separate domains, then that's what I mean.

The same goes for blog, gallery, content, calendar, etc.

Not so sure whether it would work on completely separate domains. It's not an optimal solution either, one could argue, since all other features would grab from both, regardless of url, so you would need to do it for everything. Since everything is still  on the same DB of course, we just change what forums are viewed based on url and the skin that is forced on the forum.

Im currently In the process of drawing up plans for a network that would require me to get another 6+ Licences + all Addons, This would be awesome and help out a lot.

Reading this thread and doing some googling really further proves the point that this can be done! Why if other platforms have it, can't IPS figure that out for Connect?

It's not a question of whether this can be done, as I know it can (i've done it recently just to see if it can be done). It's a question as to whether it will be done. It's unlikely that a product like this would be permitted on the marketplace because of the licensing implications.
