Making Multisite Work for You
May 21, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
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 The content in this post is more than a year old and may no longer represent best practices.
Whether used for a vast and loose affiliation of local chapter websites or a closely-held pool of topical blogs, WordPress Multisite can be an efficient and effective tool — provided it’s done right.
In this session, we’ll review this sometimes-esoteric technology and highlight appropriate use cases for leveraging it (as well as go over when to avoid it). We’ll also walk through some best practices for setting up and developing for Multisite Networks, highlighting its strengths, weaknesses and litany of “gotchas” so you can save yourself some headaches.
