Hey,
I wonderd if it was possible to put a theme in a subdomain.

Example:
I have a babe's theme on my site, now I want people to get to this theme like this: babes.mysite.com

Is this posible? It would be very nice.

Let me guess: Slashdot?

Geeklog doesn't support putting topics on subdomains, though, so this isn't possible. There is, however, a hack that lets you define a different theme for each topic. Search for "chameleon", I think that's the one.

bye, Dirk

You could make a hack into the config.php I guess.

something like

if ($_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]=="babe.mydomain.com")
{$_CONF['theme']= 'Babe';}
elsif ($_SERVER["HTTP_HOST"]=="whatever.mydomain.com")
{$_CONF['theme']= 'whatever';}
else {$_CONF['theme']= 'Smooth_Blue';}

Then make a link somewhere that points to that direction.

OOh crap
I just saw I made a terible mistake in my question. Its because I'm not English, but I'm trying.
It had to be topic, not theme.

So I wan't to put different topics in different subdomains. Is this possible?

Sorry for my big mistake, I hope you guys will forgive me

This might be impossible. Unless you want to create a rewrite in the typ of:

babe.mydomain.com
equals

mydomain.com/babe

and put a html file in there that redirects to

http://mydomain.com/index.php?topic=babe

but thats everything but an elegant solution.

maybe you can create some magic reqrite-rule on your apache-server, but thats out of my knowledge. It seems possible to me though. I dont see any way how you could do this with hacking geeklog.

check http://httpd.apache.org/docs/misc/rewriteguide.html for that.
