    So now we have our three-domain setup, and we are able to share content across them,

    but also partition off content to only appear on certain domains.

    But there are a few other things that we want to be able to do

    to distinguish between the different domains that are running on our site.

    so is it the default river of news, which is what you get

    with a default Drupal installation, which is what we have now,

    or an individual node that we might want to have there,

Domain Settings and Themes

In addition to different content, you may also want to differentiate your domains in how they look and change some of the basic site settings to make them appear more as separate sites. In this tutorial we'll use the Domain Config and Domain Theme modules (included in the Domain Access package) to let us do just this. We'll change our settings on one of the sites to set the homepage node to the About page we created earlier. Then we'll make the Alumni site look quite different by giving it a new theme. Through this process you will understand things you need to watch out for when configuring Domain Access sites, and how to be appropriately cautious with your settings.
