    • Top Multisite Plugins WordCamp Savannah August 21st 2010
    • What is multisite?
      • Multiple sites in one WordPress install
      • Also called a Network
      • Setup here:
      • http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network
    • Sitewide tags
      • Pulls posts to a tags blog or main page
      • Can use that one site for “global” content
      • Live example:
      • http://homeschooljournal.net
    • Permalinks go back to originating blog.
    • Sitewide tags options screen
    • 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/
    • Super Admin can fine-tune access
    • Gives a meta box on Write Post page. Shows all sites I have admin access to.
    • 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/
    • Super Admin needs to set things up first.
    • User can map their domain & pick a primary. (Can do more than one.)
    • Super Admin can also map domains without visiting that site.
    • 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/
    • 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.
    • 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/
    • Great for making minor chages to the same theme on different sites.
    • More Privacy Options
      • Adds more privacy settings to each site
      • Includes “must be logged in”
      • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/more-privacy-options/
    • Adds a network-wide option for Supper Admins under Super Admin -> Options menu. User gets way more privacy. Admins & Super Admins can have super-private blogs.
    • Theme & Plugin stats
      • Super Admin only
      • Helpful to clean out unused themes & plugins
      • Stats are cool
      • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpmu-plugin-stats/
      • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpmu-theme-usage-info/
    • What themes are being used where?
    • Which plugins are actually being used?
    • User management
      • Users are global across the network
      • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-users-sidebar-widget/
      • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/multisite-user-management/
    • Logged-in users can add themselves to my site if I place the widget in the sidebar to let them. The Super Admin can also choose to add uses to specifc sites on signup.
    • Blog Topics
      • Categorize the sites by topic
      • Useful to group sites by your criteria
      • Includes pages templates for output (directory?)
      • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/blog-topics/
    • Granular Plugin controls
      • Pick & choose

      • Hide plugins network-wide (for super admin only)
      • http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/restrict-multisite-plugins/
    • Does not show plugins in the mu-plugins folder. Woot!
