Is it possible to set up three forums (or boards) and make them listen to three separate domains?
I would like to create three forums (or boards), three domains and have different styling and images to each.
The key is to have the same admin-system and admin-login for all three, but have three separate usergroups.

And I know that you can simply create three domains, three databases and three forums. But that's overkill and unnecessary. And it's not enough to have three separate categories either.
So any other ideas?

to the best of my knowledge - you can.

you set up different boards so they use different .aspx file, and you set up the iis so that each domain "points to" the respective file.
... But trust me on the sunscreen!

Slight proviso in that you can't share the same admin in 1.93, because Membership providers are illsuited for that scenario.
I'm working with a similiar (subdomains) solution, well I will be once I've got the damn design done.

When I post FP:Mek in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting. (Yes I stole this off Ederon 🙂 )

Ok. That was my greatest fear.
But I get it how you use the same database at least, you use the boardid property in default.aspx.
Is there anything else I should know?
