Things change rapidly in the WordPress world. The content in this post is more than a year old and may no longer represent best practices.
The topic of the July 2012 meetup was WordPress Multisite. Since it had been more than 2 years since we covered the topic of Multisite, we started with the basics of what Multisite is, how to create a network, server and hosting considerations, subfolders versus subdomains, and domain mapping, before moving on to case studies from Sallie, Cole, and Anca.
Sallie’s slides include the overview and some screen shots of her own WordPress Multisite installation, which encompasses her business sites and personal blog, plus her mother’s website, and a client’s newsroom websites.
Cole Geissinger demonstrated the custom theme he’s developed for clients to use with his hosting and development services. The result is a network of hundreds of sites that work a little bit like WordPress.com.
Anca Mosoiu explained the uses of Multisite in the enterprise for building an intranet.
Thanks to DISQUS for the pizza!
