Apologies if this is a simple question :/
I'm using Multiple Site Manager for the first time and although I get it in principle i'm struggling to understand how to setup homepages. Here's what I have got so far and then what i'm trying to do...
Done 1. Created multiple sites in CP (done) 2. Created templates/siteHandle directories (done) 3. Pointed webserver (done) 4. Confirmed correct index.twig is loaded on correct url (done)
I have then created a 'Single' section called 'Homepage' and checked both available sites to recognise this as the 'homepage'. I then assigned a field called 'Introduction'.
My instinct is that any content applied to this 'Introduction' field should be different depending on which site was selected in the CP when adding and saving the content. So I can have a different homepage per website... because they use different index.twig which are loaded depending on url.
No... what actually happens is that any content I add or change in the homepage entry under 'Site One' in the CP immediately overwrites whatever was in 'Site Two' homepage entry and vice-versa!?
I did see a (untried) solution from a couple of years ago which was to create 'Homepage One', 'Homepage Two', ... and only assign each to the appropriate 'Site'. But surely if Craft is loading a template based on a url and an assigned index.twig via 'siteHandle' directory, one 'Homepage' under each 'Site' should work?
Thank you for any explanation and/or guidance :)
