I was wondering if anyone tried creating a Bedrock multisite install using separate domains and is that even a good idea? (No Trellis involved - unless you think I absolutely should use it and it’s way easier with it)
And if it’s not, why not?
(Haven’t properly tried it, except following the basic subdomain procedure, which seems to work even on Valet / nginx - server will be Apache on production)
mydomain.org (main domain)
mydomain.es (this would -in subdomain installation- be, say es.mydomain.org)
something.fr (this would -in subdomain installation- be, say fr.mydomain.org)
somethingelse.it (this would -in subdomain installation- be, say it.mydomain.org)
More or less all pages have similar content (especially frontpage) except in their own language.
Some posts and subpages are different + minor tweaks here and there. I guess rel=canonical would have to be applied here properly? (can WPML handle this multisite business with multiple domains anyway?)
This article describes a basic subfolder or subdomain install which I followed:
Unfortunately WPML domain mapping which might have helped, is deprecated (stopped support/development).
Any help / tips appreciated.
