I found out a single DotNetNuke website can display many Wordpress websites. I would like to share if there is a common interest.

Hi Don, I think you could be confusing things.  DotNetNuke can host MANY portals within it, unlike a standard WordPress website which can only host one on a Linux server or Windows configured to run PHP apps.  I can explain a couple of examples of what I think you may mean.

Scenario 1 - You have a top level domain with several sites that relate to it.  You are able to put top level domain name on the main portal and configure many portals which are on the same code base by building child sites and pointing the correct domain records to it, which can be done by pointing the domain, adding to IIS and then when you build the 'child site' adding in that domain name and it will be become live immediately with a default template. So, www.domain.com and then childname.domain.com and then childname2.domain.com could all have their own stand alone websites, but share modules and content throughout, even share designs.

Scenario 2 - You are a small marketing agency and want to manage a few sites but don't want to have a big involvement in having lots of custom websites to handle - so this scenario allows you to do the same thing - create a parent portal and build many websites within that one codebase using the same techniques. You can also have staging urls, build the site and when the customer wants to go live, just add in the domain into IIS and the portal alias section of the website and you have a full website of it's own, looking completely different, on it's own url within one instance of DNN.

But, to my knowledge, you cannot host a WordPress website in a DotNetNuke website.

I hope this clarifies your thinking on this topic.

Don,

Nina is right (most propably).

And there is a third scenario: You can create different portals with different domains in one DNN installation, using one database.

And a fourth one: You can create different portals with different domains in different DNN installations using one database (and a different object qualifier for each installation),

But if we are both wrong and you really managed to host WordPress sites inside a DNN installation - I would be more than interested how you did that.

Happy DNNing!

Hi Nina and Michael,

The DNN will display Wordpress only.

For example, I download 3 files from https://github.com/tinboen/DNN-Wordpress to folder ~/DesktopModules/DNN/Wordpress_1 for display https://wordpress.com/ inside a module.  This can be used to display bootstrap also.

Don,

basically this is displaying another site inside an IFrame. Nothing special. You could also use the DNN.IFrame module - or change the Url in the HTML file to _any_ website you want (not only WordPress):

<iframe class="embed-responsive-item" src="https://html-online.com/editor/">

- as long as the site does not send a X-FRAME-OPTIONS header that supresses viewing the site within a frame.

Happy DNNing!
Michael
