It’s been a while since we had a new admin area, and my old post with site admin panel screenshots is now horribly outdated.
So! If you want to look before you leap into the wonderful world of WPMU, here’s some Site Admin screenshots. Most of the admin area looks exactly the same as regular WordPress. The biggest change is the addition of the Site admin menu, seen here:
Some of these areas you use a lot (blogs, users) and some hardly at all.
Admin landing page – sort of a placeholder, has links to elsewhere
Blogs menu – blogs management
Users menu – user management
Themes menu – approve themes sitewide here
Options menu – sitewide options control
Upgrade menu – contrary what this is labeled as, you don’t upgrade here. This is for *after* an upgrade to step through each blog and update any database changes.
