Multisite extention with JomSocial

Post by CityHomestead » Thu Jun 24, 2021 7:15 pm

I'm setting up two JomSocial sites and I would like to have one install of Joomla. I found the multi site extention, and I'm wondering if anyone has experience using this with JomSocial?

Does it work well?
If both of my sites are paid memberships, will the multi site extention know not to allow a single sign in to the other site if the member has only paid for one site?

Thanks!

Colleen

Hello Colleen

To be honest I have no experience on how a multisite extension would work with JomSocial.

But I think it might not work for you, because multisite extensions share users, and if you have paid memberships, it could be a problem.

Thank you. I'll have to run them as separate sites. I really liked the idea of just having one installation of Joomla, though.

Different groups with ACL for different EasySocial/Joomsocial users (PayPlans example https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/payplans/) so I dont understand why mjparadac you can not set this up with Joomla & JMS Mulitsite/MightySites for example https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... lti-sites/ https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/mightysites/?

Pls explain.

To have better control/overview of you have a lot of roled based groups etc you can use PWT ACL Manger too https://extensions.joomla.org/extension/acl-manager/

Someone from JMS has been emailing me, but I don't understand what they're trying to explain. I think I'm going to take JomSocial up on their offer to install everything for me and just skip jms stuff.

What I'm not understanding is if the multi site module is going to allow people to access both sites even if they have only paid for membership in one site.

Maybe an alternative is to create one price that gives them access to both sites, even if they only wanted one site. But then, that seems unfair to have to pay a higher price for both sites if you only wanted one site.

EasySocial is better than JomSocial?
