Question

WordPress:

by In-Correct / March 25, 2013 2:37 PM PDT

I have installed WordPress.

But I want to have more than one subdomain. Is this possible to do with the SAME installation of WordPress, or do I need more than one installation?

currently, I have two wordpress installed.

I want people to be able to use their account across ALL the WordPress sites, instead of them having to create an account for each WordPress. Is this possible also? Do you know what I am talking about? I think it is called Global Login. or Logging In Globally. If you create an account at one site, your accounts are automatically created and synchronized with the sister sites. If you log in "here", you are automatically logged in "there". Does this make sense?

Is it possible to link these two WordPress Installations together to make the Global Login work? I installed Wordpress twice because I thought that I could not use the same Wordpress Installation. BUT Is it possible to use the same wordpress installation and have more than one subdomain for the SAME wordpress installation, and have the subdomains load a separate "home page"? Which method is easier?

WordPress is an online, open source website creation tool written in PHP. But in non-geek speak, it's probably the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
