Review of unBlog.fr
What can I say about unBlog.fr? C’est magnifique!
With a clean, pleasing front page with bright colors and well designed sections, you don’t need to know much French to navigate and appreciate this great WPMU site.
Apparently, a lot of French speakers like this blog too as there are over 200,000 blogs and 1,000,000 posts.
A pleasing homepage features a tag cloud, a few featured blog icons, and a neat array of design elements. The most popular blog categories are general, family, personal journal, photo, music arts, sports and travel with more than 2000 blogs in each category.
Two big reasons for its popularity are: C’est facile et gratuit! [It’s easy and free.]
It is funny that some aspects of blogging are universal:
Any guesses for “adrese email” and “nom de blog”?
On each blog page, the subtle footer lets users create a blog or navigate to the unBlog front page.
unBlog.fr has required several changes and performance enhancements to accommodate its large scale.
Those interested in a more technical discussion can read about several types of caching:
Caching in WPMU, database query cache, PHP Op-code cache, WordPress object cache, WP-Cache and reverse proxy caching.
So overall, a great WPMU site and some technical details on caching if you are looking to improve performance.
Merci beacoup to Kevin for the review. 🙂
