    hey guys,

    lets say i have wordpress installed on my server. Is there a way, a plugin or something to use subdomains as categories?

    for example:
    www.example.com --> shows a list of articles.
    one article is about "gaining weight". category is: "diet".
    So the article should be viewable only @ http://diet.example.com/gain-weight.html

    It's pretty easy to change to a multisite blog. But then you have separate blogs for each subdomain. It doesn't affect categories. They're still available under the main blog. If you're not familiar with multisite look into it as an option.

    Not without a lot of custom coding.

    There may be a plugin out there that allows you to choose which "blog" the post is going to, and put the post on the correct blog, without having to deal with multi-site logins.

    There is one plugin named "WP Subdomain" which can map the categories into sub-domains.

    But it doesn't work in wordpress 3.0 or newer versions.


    Anyone knows other plugin regarding same which can fulfill this requirement.
