Core Enhancements, Multiple Sites

JMS Multisites extend joomla with Multi Sites and user sharing. This allows multiple domain names or sites to have their own joomla configuration file using the same joomla installation. Possibility to share the users, and extensions like VirtueMart, Community Builder, JomSocial, ...
With this new feature you can share the joomla files and folders to create totally independent web sites.
This simply the maintenance of Joomla as you have only one instance to update for all the websites.
With JMS you can create website based on website template to create new slave site.
A "maintenance" functionality is also provided to help supervising the extension installed in each website with their datamodel and help you fix the potential datamodel errors.
As each website has its own joomla configuration.
You can decide to use:
- One database for all the websites. In this case, you must specify different database table prefix for each websites.
- Two databases (One master database and One slave database). This architecture is advised when you want to install JMS on an existing website and you are limited in the number of databases you can create (or disk space).
- As many databases than there are websites. This is the most flexible architecture where each websites works with its own database. This is generally the architecture adopted by joomla when you create multiple websites.
The content of each website is totally independent. This means that the content (articles, news, forum, users, ...) are NOT shared.

  • Get this

The setup of each configuration site consists in using the standard joomla installation mechanism.
In the administration of a 'Slave' site, you can re-install/uninstall extension previously installed on the 'Master' site.
The 'Master' site is the one where you have installed the Joomla MultiSite component and where you manage the 'Slave' sites.
Additional controls are performed during the installation/uninstallation of an extension in a 'slave' site.
Before executing the standard joomla installation, it is verified that the extension you request to install has exactly the same name and same version number to avoid inconsistency between all sites.
This additional control is performed to ensure that you will overwrite the current installation with identical files that you originally installed.
On 'slave' site, uninstalling an extension consists in a joomla standard cleanup of the database. The files present on disk for this extension is not deleted to avoid disturb the other sites.

You can also replicate a website into the same database or in different DB to avoid re-installing the extension in each slave site.
On Unix platform, it is also possible to deploy a slave site into a specific folder.

You can also share user and share the content of a limited number of extensions.


Very comprehensive. Multisites with all the bells and whistles. This extension provides lots of possibilities.

Ease of use

It does have a learning curve. But this is to be expected for an extension of this kind. It solves a complex problem in a complex CMS.


A forum, in which the developer responds personally, E-Mail and paid support. He knows what he's talking about and is very professional.


Documentation is very thorough and, in fact, is available in English. The PDF has 99 pages. Plus more in the forums and the website.

Value for money

Very good. Once it's setup you hardly ever need to touch it again, except maybe for configuration changes.

I used this to: We have several complex installations (Joomla 2.5 and 3.x) with multiple slave-sites and multisites-addons.

dont touch this

This programm is very difficult to handle and it is not working as it should. The payed support is terrible DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY

Ease of use



The payed support is terrible. I dont think he dont know himself how to handle the programm


If you know the french language all the documentation is there. I dont know if it is right

Value for money


I used this to: multi domain


This extensions serves its purpose perfectly, and it's functionality is so all around and well rounded that it can fit your needs

Ease of use

Not easy to use at all, in fact, I felt like some kind of Joomla experto just for have been able to use it. Not even to its full extent


This has no support after you buy it. As soon as you buy it you are on your own and good luck getting a timely answer.


I actually liked the documentation although it highly deorganized and unstructured. But the information is there

Value for money

Does what you need, and you just have to put work in it. Value for work worth it, value for money definetely worth it.

I used this to: Multi Sites. DUH

The programmer is a genius! Jms2win is for me one of his best achievements. I will conclude by saying that the support is excellent. No fault .. I recommend this product which is a safe bet. Jean-Pierre DIAZ

Very disapointed by this extension which was what I need. Very complicated to built, documentation not enough effective, no posibility to try with localhost and at the end a big bug on no template in frontend

great extension

The possibilities are nearly endless with this extension.

Definitely pays to spend some time watching the tutorials to get the concept. But if you get stuck the support is excellent and very quick.

Would definitely recommend this extension.

Edwin your a star.

I have used this extension for a number of years. In that time I have needed support twice. Their team has been very responsive and fixed my problems quickly and easily.

MultiSites allows for a ton of flexibility and I have never once had an issue with its features or its usability!

Excellent Product!

Great Extension!

This is a very powerful extension. It worked great for me in trying to create different websites for consulates in Atlanta, Orlando, Miami, New York, etc. different cities but needed to be similar but unique in some respects.

The websites are able to share content that I choose by category and can have their unique layouts and images, administration as you wish.

Support and training is always available. I haven't had trouble reaching Edwin in the case of help and he doesn't just explain how to do things, you get a conceptual understanding and hands on guidance in accomplishing whatever task you need.

I recommend this as a professional grade extension and a great experience I have had with it.

I purchased JMS MultiSites along with the 3 hours of installation/support time and I am so thankful I did. Edwin did in 3 hours what I'm not sure I could ever do. I've never seen a developer work so thoroughly and quickly before. His grasp of what we needed and what had to be done to accomplish it was amazing. I would highly recommend this component and the support.

A month later when we had an issue with another component he helped us to sort out the issue that ended up being related to the other component and not JMS.

Purchase the support, it's well with your time and money and he'll teach you more than you can imagine in such a quick amount of time.

Great job Edwin and Thanks!

If you plan to have multiple sites running on the same domain, then you really really need this extension to make your life easier!

Granted - this extension is not a "install and forget" kinda thing - but neither is having 50+ sites running on the same shared Joomla code. But if you make the effort, and read the manual to know how to use it correctly, you will find it is really worth it and save yourself a lot of time.

Support is excellent - both in the forums and the paid assistance.

Can't say enough good about the extension and the developer, and feel sorry for those who do not bother to check out the requirements before buying and complaining.
