MaEstes (it’s a shame I don’t know her real name!!) has put together a fascinating introduction to multi-user wordpress in school district. Although my district is currently using the Apple blog solution, I’m definitely considering a switch to WPMU for one simple reason–I know more about MySQL and PHP backing that up than I do Apple Blog. So, it’s a support issue. And, while I’ve heard folks are using WPMU, I’m thrilled I won’t have to figure it out solo!
This year I got to work a lot with WordPress MU as we installed it on a district server and used it as our blogging platform for or teachers. I learned quite a bit about how NOT to do things, and some neat tricks along the way!
It is important to note that WordPress MU is a derivative of the WordPress software. Therefore, the coding, installation, themes, plugins, etc…are all very similar and many themes and plugins that work for WordPress will work in WordPress MU. Just FYI – my blog is a WordPress blog installed on midphase.com – my host.
