    So here is what I have done….I have created a website with multiple folders to cater for multiple currencies. Firstly I created the Australia site and set this up to near completion, and I am using this site as like my template, I have requested my host to copy all the files and database to the other websites sub folders ie. USA and UK. The three sites now look the same and I am starting to customise each site to be it’s own website directed at the country specified.
    My problem is: the submit page is not working. when I try to access the new submit page here http://www.thecakedirectory.com/usa/submit I am redirected back to the http://www.thecakedirectory.com/australia/submit.
    So far to try and fix it I have: deleted the usa submit page and recreated it so now the id is: submit-2. I have then changed the file path for things like the new widget button link to point to http://www.thecakedirectory.com/usa/submit-2 but it still takes me to the original australia site albeit with a error as there is no submit-2 page on this site.
    I am also having the same problem with my custom menu where I have a “Advertise with us” menu option with the link pointing to the new usa site but I am still taken to the australia site when I click on this link.
    I must be missing something??
    Does anyone know how to resolve this?

    Are you using WordPress Multisite?

    So how do you have it set up? If you would use WordPress as multisite, you could easily have the different sites for each language.

    I initially set them up as subfolders via cpanel (bluehost) at that stage I had not heard about multisite. Once the subfolder was created I then installed wordpress separately on each subfolder.
    I have the following sites, each with different databases.
    http://www.thecakedirectory.com
    http://www.thecakedirectory.com/tutorialsandmore
    http://www.thecakedirectory.com/australia
    http://www.thecakedirectory.com/usa
    http://www.thecakedirectory.com/unitedkingdom

    The reason for the different sites is for different currencies and easier searching for a local cake maker, tutorialsandmore also has it’s own database because I am not allowing users to list themselves as I will be doing all the listings.
    I did read once in the old forum about multisite (someone was doing a similar set up to me) but the posts advised against it, I can’t remember the reason’s why not to use it though, perhaps it was the integration with paypal?.

    Is the only benefit of multisite being able to log in with only one username and password, if so I am happy to continue as I am and log in to each site individually, it’s not been a problem so far.

    Joanne using sun folders for this is a bad idea on so many levels, you would be wise to look into the use of WordPress network (multi site setup) instead of installing 1 copy of WP each time.

    Oh no really mark, if I setup mutisite will I still be able to have separate databases etc? with different prices for listings etc on each site? Can I do this though now that I have started with subfolders or would I have to start from scratch, I have spent nearly a year to get to this stage, I would hate to start again. (I have 4 little children to look after so I only do this with limited time and many interuptions).

    Joanne, if you contact me on my email: richard@premiumwebservices.co.uk I will be able to setup the WP multisite for you. I have done this many times.
    Even though WP Multisite uses just one database, each of the ‘sites’ has their own tables and behave like a completely separate sites (with their own admin section etc.).

    Kind regards,

    Richard
