Over the last several months, I’ve been gaining experience with WordPress’ Multisite setup. This post is a bit of a brain dump of things I’ve found or learned along the way.
Multisite 101 – This is a great primer e-book on the subject. I highly recommend it.
Adapting a plugin to multisite (stackoverflow) – This is a good run down of some programmatic considerations you might need to make.
Remove “/category/” from your url base. I would never have guessed the solution presented here. However, I ran into pagination problems using this in combination with removing the default “/blog” slug on my root site. In the end, this plugin fixed the issue which I found via this wordpress.org support thread.
Enable a theme for just one site (blog post) – Sometimes, it’s just helpful to see how its done.
Active plugins on multisite – I found this plugin helpful for getting an overview of all plugins within the network. However, at the time of this writing, the plugin appears unmaintained. I ended up forking it to fix a few issues that were reported through the support forums. Here is the git repo of my fork for those interested.
