Default Multi country based stores on one domain

Good Afternoon,

Is it possible with Datafeedr to run two stores (i.e. a US and a UK store) on the same domain?

For example rather than

www.giftoly.co.uk &
www.giftoly.com

have

www.giftoly.com/uk/store &
www.giftoly.com/us/store

If it is possible are there any other negative issues that could arise from it ?

Many thanks for your help

Hi

Yes, it's possible and it's how we recommend multiple country sites to operate. I suggest using WPMU to do this so you only have to maintain one version of WP.

Awesome, just been reading through that.

Do you know if it will 'break' my site when I create the network ?

Will I have to rebuild my datafeedr store etc?

Hi

You won't have to rebuild your store but you will probably lose your backlinks.

Thanks Eric,

That's less of a problem as it's so new.

So reading the page it seems there are two options 1) the path and 2) sub directory.

I would prefer to have www.giftoly.com/uk/store and .com/us/store so the path would be the way to go. Is that suitable for datafeedr?

Many thanks.

That's perfect. Very easy to set up.

Ah I think I may have a problem..

Sorry as this probably isn't quite your remit but kind of datafeedr related...

I'm not sure if this following snippet is referring to this but my Wordpress installation is installed in a a sub folder on my hosting package (think that's the right term) i.e. /giftoly and not the root..

Is the bottom section referring to this ?

Really do appreciate your help

You cannot create a network in the following cases:

* "WordPress address (URL)" is different from "Site address (URL)".
* "WordPress address (URL)" uses a port number other than ':80', ':443'.
You cannot choose Sub-domain Install (for a domain-based network) in the following cases:

* The WordPress URL contains a path, not just a domain. (That is, WordPress is not installed in a document root, or you are not using the URL of that document root.)
* "WordPress address (URL)" is localhost.
* "WordPress address (URL)" is IP address such as 127.0.0.1.

I don't think it's related to your installation.
