multi tennant with shared content types

Hi there,

I have been looking at the muti tennent module in orchard and i'm not sure if this is the correct way to go.  We have a landing page which has links to different home pages for different countries.  I would like a admin user for each country to just be able to edit content for their respective pages so naturally, thought multi tennant was the way to go but we cannot share content types between the sites as they are essentially different sites.  I'm just wondering if some one has tried to implement this kind of model before and if they have, what the best way is to go about it (we are using orchard 1.5.1 btw)

If there is common content, multi-tenancy is not the right choice.

Hi bertrand,

thx for the reply.  would like to run it by you, I added content permissions to the page content type then create a page for uk, germany and each country.  Then a role for ukadmina and german admin and assign permissions to each of the content types respectively and this seems to work ok,  Sounds ok to you?

by the way, contact item permissions are fantastic.
