Host multiple separate websites on the same Radiant installation each with their own users, pages, snippets and layouts (soon to be supporting other extensions). Administer users and sites from any domain using your administrative accounts and manage website content by logging into each domain.
IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT VHOST
- Not compatible with the multi_site extension
- Uses the scoped_access plugin, make sure none of your extensions have a conflicting version of the plugin.
- Hooks into the Radiant 'bootstrap' functionality and currently overwrites the standard templates with a modified version of the Simple Blog (i.e. no Styled Blog or Coffee template)
The New way:
gem install radiant-vhost-extension # add the following line to your config/environment.rb: config.gem 'radiant-vhost-extension', :lib => false rake radiant:extensions:update_all rake radiant:extensions:vhost:install
The old way:
git clone git://github.com/saturnflyer/radiant-vhost-extension.git vendor/extensions/vhost rake radiant:extensions:vhost:update rake radiant:extensions:vhost:migrate
GETTING UP AND RUNNING QUICKLY
rake radiant:extensions:vhost:apply_site_scoping rake radiant:extensions:vhost:add_default_site
This scopes Page, Layout, and Snippet by default under a Site with a Hostname of "*".
User scoping is not performed. The first user with 'admin' set is set to be a site_admin for the default site.
VHOST SUPPORT FOR OTHER EXTENSIONS
Vhost support for other extensions is enabled by creating a /config/vhost.yml file containing the names of the models that should be scoped down per site. If site scoping for an extension cannot be specified through the model (i.e. it uses the file system to present data or otherwise doesn't use an ActiveRecord) then currently you cannot enable site scoping.
models: # Class name ManagedFile: # Property requiring definition of validates_uniqueness_of filename: # Parameters to pass to validates_uniqueness_of scope: - site_id message: 'file name is already in use' # Any classes used in Single Table Inheritance(STI) sti_classes: - OneClass - TwoClass
