    Hi guys,

    Here is what I want to do. I want to have a main blog and then have subdomains off that blog. For example:

    main blog: console-games.com
    subdomain: xbox360.console-games.com, wii.console-games.com, etc...

    I would like to use the same theme/layout throughout the site except maybe the header graphic or other minor changes.

    I would rather not do a separate blog install in each subdomain but instead use the single blog install from the main domain(if possible).

    I've looked at wp-sudomains plugin and wordpress mu but I'm not sure they are what I need for this setup.

    Looking for suggestions.

    I would say I have moderate to high tech skills but not ton of experience with wordpress(I can throw up autoblogs and modify code if needed)

    Thanks,

    Shawn
