    I am building diffrent wp sites on subdomains. I want them all to have one user profile and act as one website for user experience.

    I have been researching this and I was surprised to find it not such a hot topic.

    Of course I can build one website with everything in one place, but that would be messy. An online theme is very diffrent to a blog theme which is diffrent to a heardcore news theme. This is why I am providing each service with a diffrent theme on a seperate subdomain.

    I cant see a streightforwad way to do this. Below are some of the options I looked into:

    1. wp multisite
      This is not ment to work this way, but with some tweaking it can, but a plugin like woocommerce will get confused because of the role assigned to user.
    2. wp sharing tables
      This is fiddly with coding, but some people claim to have made it work.
    3. wp multitheme
      the ability to use diffrent themes in one installation, so visually it gives the user a good experience and it simplifies the back end with one wp intallation and plugins like woocommers and subscriptions does not get confused.

    Having done my reaserch, I have not found a clear way forward. So I am stuck.

    Can you help?

    Yes, this is a very technical thing to pull off. There are several write-ups on the internet, but they all have the same instructions.

    It involves some serious database administration skills.

    why the multisite solution isn't what you want?

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    Thank you Adam & stratos for your replies..


    I agree with you, I dont see why the multisite solution cant work?

    I checked with woocommerce who are the same people who are responsible for wordpress and they said to me this is not how multisite is supposed to work.


    I think multisite works. Because the way I see it, Any user on a multisite network is registered to the whole network and there is no duplication of users. The user has to sign up to each site to be able to be pary of that site, but with the same user profile. You just get activated on that site.


    I think wooocommerce does not work across multisite. So if you have a membership plan on one site, woocommerce will not be able to work on a diffrent site. So I cant have a membership plan with woocommerce to be active on many sites in the network.


    There are some plugin for sharing woocommerce products across multisite envinroment, but I want woocommerce membership plans to be shared across multisites???


    am I getting this wrong?

    There is a plugin that lets your woocommerce users and cart to be global for all the multisite. I don't know if it works for membership but you can ask the company that makes the plugin. https://wooglobalcart.com

    Yes, I found them and had already contacted them. They said that their plug in is only for sharing products and it does not extend to membership and content restriction 🙁
