WPMU-Enterprise allows the site admins to have multi, multi-user blogs on one install of wordpress.
Starting with WP 1.5, many of us had to find a solution to upgrade/manage mutiple sinlge wp blogs. This was solved with the release of wpmu.Â From there, many of us then had to figure out a way to upgrade/manage multiple mu blogs.Â This is an attempt to solve this problem.
- Multiple MU blogs ex. domain1.com, domain2.com, subdomain.domain1.com, etc.
- Different site admins for each mu blog.
- Different mu blogs are maintained as companies
- Each site admin is given itâ€™s own company to manage blogs, sites and users.
- Domain name mapping
- Manage multiple mu-sites with one wordpress install.
- Assign site admins to companies and restrict their access to blogs, users.
- You have to edit 3 core files.
- Can only be used if you are using subdomains.
Note to self: If I have problems with image uploads, try some of these fixes…
Jim Groom, who administers the UMW group of WordPressMU blogs has placed a whole slew of videos online, which help users with WPMU, as well as migrate from WPMU-1.3.3 to WPMU-2.6.
The inimitable Andy Rush (a.k.a. EduRush) and I have been working diligently to create a whole slew of screencasts documenting the new interface for WPMu 2.6. Weâ€™ve finished a whole bunch of them over the last week or so and published them on the now official UMW Blogs Screencasts site, so below is a list of the screencasts we have created. All of the screencasts are Creative Commons and while theyâ€™re currently published as SWF files, we will be uploading them all to Blip shortly. Keep in mind that these screencasts are specific to the UMW Blogs installation, but they still may prove useful for anyone who wants to point people to a quick overview of the administrative backend, the changes between versions WPMu 1.3.3 and 2.6, and a very tab-specific discussion of the how to manage a WordPress blog.
Here’s a very nice FAQ on using WordPressMU 2.6. Of course, it is geared towardÂ UMW blogs (instead of FreedomBlogging.com) but the information is pretty good, and the screenshots are prolific.
