What is the status of Connections in relation to Multisite? I read the multisite in single mode article and got the impression it is possible to run a single installation and share information across all the sub-domains within the single installation.
I would like to have a UK directory with a separate website HUB for each region within the UK. However, when I do a search I would want to return directory entries for individuals/organisations on the borders of regional boundaries. If I could reference a global directory this would solve the problem perfectly. Otherwise it’s complicated and involves duplication.
Is this possible? Any suggestions?

Connections is multi-site compatible, but has to be activated on each site individually, it can not be network activated.
wp-config.phpfile in a multisite setup, Connections will use a common database on each subsite in which it is activated. This means all subsites will have the same data instead of a database dedicated/isolated to the subsite. Hope that makes sense. So, it seems you want to run Connections in single-site mode in a multisite setup. If that is the case you would set

Just tried it and it works! You’ve sold it to me. What a great plugin. If only I could do this for posts, my life would be a lot simpler. Do the settings on each Connections activation operate independently? Do I need to be aware of any potential conflicts, between the individual Connections installationg that is? Thanks, Steve.07/22/2013 at 3:07 pm #265444
The settings should be independent in each subsite and there is not any conflicts that I’m aware of. All I can say is I know at two others are running Connections like this and they seemed satisfied with the results.07/22/2013 at 3:08 pm #265445
If you have a moment, a review would be super!
