Known extensions which can't be shared across few sites with different database tables (a site can't load extension data from other site but data can be shared in sites use same tables):
Listbingo, Ohanah, Fabrik, Falang, JDictionary, JoomFish, RokGallery, RokSprocket, Docman, Logman and other Koowa-related extensions.
Falang, JDictionary and JoomFish extensions don't allow to load any external database data on a site where installed, so custom sharing of database data is not possible, but you can run multiple slave sites with minor customizations (like separate default menu item, separate default language, hide menu items and/or modules per site etc.)
* Only configuration.php file is auto-changed by the component.
Want a new feature? Why not? Please Contact Us!
- Joomla! 3.8.x installed and working correctly.
- MySQL 5, PHP 5.3+.
- Joomla! database user should have access to databases with shared content (that usually means that your sites should be located within same hosting account of same hosting provider).
- Copy of databases and share contents require all sites to use same MySQL host.
- All sites should use domain root, i.e. in http://domain.com, not http://domain.com/joomla/ if you want to serve multiple sites from single Joomla installation. It won't work with http://localhost/mysite, you will need to setup virtual hosts (please be sure that you know how).
- You should be able to create parked domains in your hosting panel for creating virtual domains.
- Your server should allow symbolic links creation for creating virtual domains like http://mainsite.com/xxx.
- It's only possible to share all items of same type (all records from same database table).
- You can't separate settings of the components which use files for storing data, i.e. Community Builder.
- You can't share certain categories of Joomla articles, only all categories. Same for articles - you can share only all articles.
- Content sharing doesn't work with JoomFish, JDictionary and other extensions which use custom database handler.
- Backend edit of 3rd-party websites works in standard backend templates only (Bluestork for Joomla 2.5 and Isis for 3.0+).
