    Is it possible to have, different theme on each category and different domain(not subdomain) on each category?

    How?

    Well I do not want payment but here is an easy solution i have done this a couple times.

    Make a blogroll rename it categories . Put in the domain of the other domain and then name the link the category in which you are trying to achieve with that domain.

    this is a very simple solution. Probably the most effective for what you are trying to do.

    No coding is necessary with that solution.

    Some times you can never see the wood for the trees, and I have thought about this myself and only came to the conclusion that you would have to mess with the code...

    Sometimes taking a step back reveals the answer in the most simplest way...

    This is not my post but I have thought about this in the past, thanks for the simple solution....

    i found a solution. If you think about it do you think you would be interested of having such setup:

    1. Install wordpress.
    2. Point 50 domains to the installation folder.
    3. Install SEO plugins and adsense.
    4. Create 50 categories for each domain.
    5. Scrape content into each category with CC or our prefered tool.

    Each domain will only show it's category and the blogs will seem for google to not be interconnected.

    You can use Wordpress MU + Domain Mapping Plugin

    This will give you one master backend, different top level domains, themes and plugin ability for each blog. There is also a few sitewide default plugins, to make all newly created blogs have the same categories, configuration etc if you want.

    So you will have only one lot of WP files, Database and Backend. You can map as many unique domain names as you want and use unique themes/plugins for each.

    I've got several Wordpress MU setups like this and it works well, i can push out a fully optimized blog full of content on it's own domain in about 10 minutes.

    i've also thought about this.

    i've tried wordpress hive which is a plugion that allows
    1. Install wordpress.
    2. Point 50 domains to the installation folder.
    3. Install SEO plugins and adsense.

    but then each blog is a new blog in its own right regarding content. WPHive only makes the job of managing plugins and themes easier.

    Yes CC works perfectly on MU, so does Zip Poster, AutoBlogged, WriteAgain etc. I'm using a combination of those, and several other content generators and feed tools built for regular WP and they all work perfect.

    Also for any WPCloaker owners, it works perfect with MU i'm CS + cloaking full blogs to landing pages with it going on 3 month without a deindex.

    How is MU a resource hog? Mu "is" Wordpress, there's no real difference between it and Wordpress in terms of PHP & MySql execution times it's only if you start doing sloppy sitewide queries to fetch latest posts across the whole network and things like that.

    Anyhow, i posted a Subdomain Categories plugin for regular Wordpress a few months ago, it will work also and allows different themes for each sub/category then you just park your domains on the subs in cPanel however MU is far more flexible.

    Rishdie, if you solution is using one set of WP files do you have separate feeds for each blog?
