Default Hypothetical question regarding cnames

I'm not very versed in cnames, so please excuse what could potentially be a really silly question... Is it at all possible to specify a subdomain AND a directory as a cname? In looking at the FusionPro Links documentation, it specifies to either use a subdomain name or a domain name as a cname. We pretty much had to jump through flaming hoops to get just a single subdomain setup for use as a cname, so we're trying to think of alternate methods to setup and have active multiple campaigns. So for example, could http://campaigns.website.com/SpringPromo and http://campaigns.website.com/SummerPromo serve as valid cnames?

Any ides or suggestions would be very welcome! So far the best idea I've come up with is to add a couple extra portals to the Excel spreadsheet; one would be a campaign name followed by an underscore, and the other would be the customer's name (e.g. http://campaigns.website.com/SpringPromo_ChrisStackhouse). While this would generate campaign-specific PURLs, the issue still exists where we could only have 1 campaign active at once.

Default Re: Hypothetical question regarding cnames

I know this has been a while, but the option you mention will not work. For any one domain, sub-domain name or cname you may only have one campaign active at a time. You can have more than one Campaign active in a Portal, but the domain name must be unique.
