    Has any tried sharing the umbraco media with two different installs of umbraco.

    I have a client that has two umbraco sites but wants to use the same media files in both sites.

    I'm thinking I may need to hook into the media save event and save to both databases... hoping there is a better way

    We always use a multi site install for that. I don't know how big the sites are but you could merge them in to one installation.

    For one client we are running 3 multilingual sites in one installation. Works like a charm.

    How big is your site?

    I think if I combine all the nodes together then around 15000 nodes... maybe that will be too much?

    Hi Nick,

    You could use the Media Save event and push each item across to the other site(s) upon saving a media item.

    But, I think Frans idea of combining the two is probably the best option unless you need them to be separate for some reason?

    I have worked on a Umbraco project in the past with over 80,000 nodes and never noticed that much of a performance hit.

    The only issue from time to time is if you have a massive content tree, with let's say over 10k nodes, then you may wait a minute for the tree to render.

    It was never that much of an issue, to be honest, and that project pre-date the new ListView option, which should speed things up a lot.

    Good luck!
