I am running a multi-site WordPress install with Connections. A possible scenario just came to mind and I wanted to ask you how the Connection software would respond.
Let’s say user A is a writer and an author and wants to sign up on today’s visions to be listed in the directory. Could she be listed under two different venues – Hot Reads and the Galleries?

Are the venues Hot Reads and Galleries different categories within Connections or are they two different network site? I can not really tell, but I’m guessing two different network sites. If that is the case, it depends on how Connections is setup. By default on a multi site install of WP, Connections will run in multi site mode, meaning each instance where Connections is activated on a network site is isolated from each other (does not share data). However, Connections can be configured to run in single site mode on a multisite install of WP. This mean in each instance where Connections is activated on a network site it will share the same data across all network sites. Is the latter what you want?09/24/2014 at 3:27 pm #305068Arizona LoweParticipant
Yes and no. I would like it to be shared but only have each category available in it’s venue. Authors in Hot Reads, Artists in The Galleries, etc … It is in single site – each site has it’s own install.
The question is – if I have to reset it up in network – will I have to re-enter all my data :-(09/25/2014 at 10:10 am #305148Steven ZahmKeymaster
If I understand yes, you can have shared data and then just use the category shortcode option to limit the results to a specific category.
Is the site a single site now? I think if you add
define( 'CN_MULTISITE_ENABLED', FALSE );(in the wp-config.php file) at the same time you convert to multi site … everything should just work. Honestly though, I’ve never tried it.
If you already have multi site setup, you still need to add
define( 'CN_MULTISITE_ENABLED', FALSE );to the
Will you lose or have to re-add your data, no … but, you may have to move the
connections-imagesfolder to the correct location and use phpMyAdmin to renamed tables so they are associated with the super network tables and not any of the network sites tables.
Hope that helps!
