From the archives – building a better blog host series
A way back in the days of WordPress mu, I wrote a series of posts helping new users to plan out and really think about their network they were setting up. Almost all of the information is still applicable and still useful, so here’s a recap for your elucidation.
Building a better blog host: Week 1 The first week walks you through the basic understanding of how the whole platform works and encourages you to make your plans. It also talks about install and setup.
Building a better blog host: Week 2 – the front page In the second installment I walked readers through setting up the front page, using the previous version of wordpress.com as my example.
Week #3 Build a better blog site – User themes and pluginsThis week’s installment dealt with explaining how themes and plugins work in a wpmu and multisite environment. The addition of “network activate” hadn’t happened, but the rest applies.
Building a Better Blog host: Week 4, the SEO and stats edition always a hot topic, I covered SEO and how it applies to a network, and I also talked about stats.
Build A Better Blog Host Week 5 – Security And lastly, I covered security in week 5.
So, what do you think? Is it time for an update? Is there a section I missed or one I could add now that we are light years away? Or was most of the past advice still really relevant?
