First time building a site with Craft, but a long time admirer.

Just wanted to know the best way to approach an educational site that has many locations, and then have a news section, etc. in each one.

Not sure the best approach in regards to creating sections to achieve this.

  • "Best practice" and "Best way" questions are likely to be closed, as they are opinion-based.

    @nicae how come the top voted question until now is one of these opinion based "best practice" questions?

  • @jon what do you mean with "multi locations"?

  • @jon Can you specify your question (have you tried sth. yet, have you specific concerns?...etc) or split it into multiple separate questions? Right now it's very broad and it's hard to give an answer without guessing.

    Stack Overflow moderators != Craft SE moderators. I hope we won't ever close questions only because they have the words "best practice" in it!

A different News Channel for each location:

For example:

  • News Location 1 with Entry URL Format location-1/news/{slug}
  • News Location 2 with Entry URL Format location-2/news/{slug}

See this question: Are there any intentions to release multisite support for Craft? and be sure to click through to the G+ conversation

tl;dr: consider using locales. Custom locales likely to come to Craft somewhere down the road.


You could use a mulit-environment config for your "locations" (if my guessing is right and you want different Base URLs). Both "locations" (= environments) get access to the same content.

Then you can access your site on:
