I am about to do the one-click WP install for my upcoming site, onemanz.com, on DreamHost.
1 - should I install it directly to my main domain www.onemanz.com?
I see the install is asking for inclusion of a subdomain, but I do not have any yet.
2 - I see the install instructions mention editing the wp-config.php: if there will be multiple installations of WP. What I do not know is:
If I end up needing to use a different WP Theme for subdomains, because they may need their own menus and archives, do I need a completely separate install of WP for each Theme?
If you need more info of my specific needs, read on.
I am unsure if I can accomplish my goal of having subsites with different pulldown menus by using one WP theme and child pages, or if I really will need to use a separate WP theme for each subsite and just use hyperlinks between them.
Example: onemanz.com will show the recent posts of each “category” (subdomain), and the Read More will link to the subdomain’s main page - onemanz.com/guitar, for guitar reviews, onemanz.com/beer, craft beer reviews, etc.
Each of those subdomains will have its own pulldown menus, maybe its own logo, etc.
Will that sort of thing require separate WP installs, or just one?
