I have a MSM installation that will be powering 3 different sites. One site is essentially a small stand-alone brochure site and is running fine. The other two are Site A - default site w/ most of the content and Site B, a smaller site that is going to re-use some content from A.

The short question is: Is it possible to use Structure and MSM to share content between sites?

Longer details:

All the sites are using Structure to manage pages. In Site B, I have duplicated the channels and Structure layout for this particular page I'm trying to display. I have also duplicated the template wich includes the channel:entries tag:


The only difference between Site A template and Site B is the site="default_site" tag. Everything else in the templates, channels, and entries are the same between sites.

Side note - my navigation templates use a similar channel entries tag (limited to a specific category id) and they display fine. The correct content entries are being displayed in the nav on Site B.

You can share content, but all navigation and page data is site-specific, so you can't call from one into another unfortunately. It's just an EE/MSM limitation.


The solution we have come up with is to use the Playa add-on and link the content that way. This requires us to create the pages on Site B via Structure, but solves the navigation and page-date restriction Travis mentions. This also allows us to add in Site B specific content as needed (another client requirement).
