  9. 9. Upload Create directory /sites/all/modules FTP /sites/all/modules/domain
  10. 10. WWW prefix handling ( ) Process all host requests normally (*) Treat www.* as an alias of * If set, calls to www.* will be treated as if the www. did not exist. Users will be taken from to, so your domains must be registered without the www. Prefix. Try the following links. They both go to the same site.
  11. 11. Modules
  12. 12. Domain Alias <ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  13. 13. Domain Conf Site same Email address Slogan Mission Footer message Default front page Anonymous user Default time zone Site status Site off-line message
  14. 14. Domain Content Content for one domain or all domains.
  15. 15. Domain Navigation Create a block listing all the domains so you can jump from domain to domain. Use Drupal block access controls to keep the block away from people with short attention spans.
  16. 16. Domain Prefix Domain Prefix can build different prefixes for each domain. menu_links becomes domain_2_menu_links. Do not use the standard Drupal prefix tables. Do not prefix the system tables mentioned in
  17. 17. Domain Source You can make Domain Access rewrite URLs to point back to a central site. Franchisers might make franchisee sites present terms & conditions from the franchiser site instead of the individual franchisee sites. Use Domain Source and experiment with all the options.
  18. 18. Domain Strict Tie your users up in chains and make them beg. Make users register at a site to read content on that site.
  19. 19. Domain Theme Select a different theme for every site. A future release will let you set different theme settings for every site.
  20. 20. Domain User Give some or all of your users a way to easily create subdomains. Sally can register at as csschick and create
  21. 21. Domain Views Do you use the Views add on module? If yes then use Domain Views to get the right views for each domain. Read the README.txt file in Domain Views for compatibility notes.
