I am a Wordpress fan, and I'm now building a new site and I'm not sure which CMS can achieve what I'm trying to do.

I am building a food blog network for a bunch of cities in the US, and I want to my city pages to be independently running blogs themselves. So basically...

  • Home Page - Its own blog with its own users, talking about Food in general
  • Dallas Page (child of home page) - Its own blog with its own users
  • Chicago Page ..... so on and so forth.

The web layout and design will be all the same, but just trying to achieve 25~50 independent blogs on one domain.

How can I achieve this? I'm hoping that I don't have to install Wordpress into as many subdomains that I create.

Won't a WordPress Network do it?

I never knew such a thing existed. I will read it and get back to you! Thanks MrChrister! –  Ron Mar 18 '11 at 1:38
    
You are the man. That is exactly what I needed. Never knew such a feature came with 3.0. –  Ron Mar 18 '11 at 1:45

That would indicate this answers your question? Consider marking it as such :) –  Mike Hudson Mar 20 '11 at 23:47

Another option would be the Lifetype blogging platform, which accommodates multiple blogs and users.

I'm not sure if it has many CMS capabilities, but it handles multiple blogs and bloggers by default.
