    Setting up national and regional sites problem

    Hi all,

    Apoligies in advance if what I am about to write makes no sense....

    I am working on a site which has the following structure

     

    ---->National Site (This node is called Home as it will be the main home page)

    ---->News

    ---->Etc.

    ---->Small Regional Site 1

    ---->News

    ---->Etc.

    ---->Small Regional Site 2

    ...

    These have been setup as seperate nodes at the root of the content tree and what I want to do is the following:

    When a user hits the national site by hitting http://national then they see the national site

    When a user hits a regional site by hitting http://national/region1 they see the regional site

    If I set umbraco to do this with "umbracoHideTopLevelNodeFromPath" then the regional sites work perfectly (you get http://national/region1) however the national site does the same sort of thing http://national/home/news.aspx

    I can see why this is happening and it works as it should, however our client is going to want to get to the national site without having a /home/ prefix.

    It probably would make more sense to list all the regions underneath the National site as subdirectorys but the customer would prefer to have them as seperate sites if possible.

    Does anyone have any clues for a way to make this work?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Kind Regards,

    Steve

    "It probably would make more sense to list all the regions underneath the National site as subdirectorys"

    Totally agree with the above.

    "but the customer would prefer to have them as seperate sites if possible"

    Simply create a user with the start node at Region1 and it will look exactly like a stand alone website.
