New series starting Friday

This Friday will be the first post in a 6 week series on how to set up and run your WPMU-based site. We’ll walk you through setup, picking themes and plugins, and a few extras like SEO, tweaking the server and security.

The rough plan is as follows:
1 – thinking about your end users, picking a host and installation
2 – choosing your front page theme, set up main page features and sitewide plugins
3 – User’s blogs: choosing themes and plugins (widgets) for them
4 – SEO and stats
5 – Securing the site and the server
6 – Promotion and maintenance

Since news of the merge, there will likely be more and more people wanting to learn how to make the best use of multi-blogs features, so we thought we’d better get cracking on a series of helpful tutorial posts. I picked Fridays, as I realized most people will probably be doing this in their spare time on the weekends.

You should probably subscribe to the feed so you don’t miss out.

  1. Great stuff Andrea, your new tutorial series is sure to become a valuable resource as we head towards merger between WP and WPMU.

    I’m almost ready to cut over my Entregreeneur.com site to a new WPMU 2.7.1 site, but I know there’s plenty more I can learn from you and Ron, so I look forward to the tutorials.

    Thanks very much guys!

    warm regards,

  4. Andrea… I think my sites on life support right now, or needs defibulation, or maybe some “anti brain freeze medication… ( I dunno) It could be a case study…. !! ;^)
