  • 1. Top Multisite Plugins WordCamp Savannah August 21st 2010
  • 2. What is multisite?
    • Multiple sites in one WordPress install
    • Also called a Network
    • Setup here:
    • http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network
  • 3. Sitewide tags
    • Pulls posts to a tags blog or main page
    • Can use that one site for “global” content
    • Live example:
    • http://homeschooljournal.net
  • 4. Permalinks go back to originating blog.
  • 5. Sitewide tags options screen
  • 6. Broadcast / Multipost
    • Push posts from main blog to other sites
    • Works opposite to SWT
    • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multipost-mu/
    • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/threewp-broadcast/
  • 7. Super Admin can fine-tune access
  • 8. Gives a meta box on Write Post page. Shows all sites I have admin access to.
  • 9. Domain Mapping
    • Each site in the network can have their own top-level domain
    • You need to create the site first, then map it.
    • Plugin here:
    • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/
    • wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/
    • Tutorial:
    • http://ottopress.com/2010/wordpress-3-0-multisite-domain-mapping-tutorial/
  • 10. Super Admin needs to set things up first.
  • 11. User can map their domain & pick a primary. (Can do more than one.)
  • 12. Super Admin can also map domains without visiting that site.
  • 13. New Blog Defaults
    • Controls settings for new sites as they are created
    • Does not do plugin, theme or widget settings
    • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpmu-new-blog-defaults/
  • 14. Pulls in all the settings for a site that are under the Settings menu, plus these bonus extras. It's a really long page of menus.
  • 15. WordPress.com Custom CSS
    • Each site can customize the css without touching theme files
    • Works like the one at wordpress.com
    • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/safecss/
  • 16. Great for making minor chages to the same theme on different sites.
  • 17. More Privacy Options

    • Includes “must be logged in”
    • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/more-privacy-options/
