WordPress Multi User

Work with WordPress MU (multi user) is the reason from my recent absence from blogging. The East Coast area of a UK charity, the National Coastwatch Institution, needed a rebuild of one its website to go along with an extension of it’s activities.

Although you may not have the same needs as this organization you may consider using WordPress MU if you want to develop more than one blog.

I had originally created the coastwatch site using the Joomla CMS system but, as the interface was complicated for them, WordPress was my obvious choice. After working with WordPress on various sites for a year or so, I know how flexible it can be. I was pleased to see that immediately after the new site was up and running Keef, who will be a co-author, had written a post and just needed me to tell him to hit the media button to add images. So much simpler.

As NCI East Coast now comprises of two coastwatch stations, managed by two separate committes, each needed their own unique identity, I decided on using WordPress MU to make administration simpler. Both stations now have their own unique pages and blogs on their own virtual subdomains.

The blog and some pages on the main East Coast site are being used as a private member only area for both of the coastwatch volunteer teams. Plugins turn this section into a true community site.

The other East Coast pages are public and contain information common to both stations. By using WordPress MU, the three blogs and three sets of static pages (NCI Eastcoast, NCI Skegness and NCI Mablethorpe) can all be managed from one admin dashboard.

I am hoping to see lots of posts written on the site to gain it speedy search engine page ranking and to raise awareness, more volunteer watchers and, hopefully more funds, for this worthy charity organization. Their volunteers man the coastwatch stations daily, making sure beach and sea goers are safe.

You may like to go along and leave a comment, joining me in congratulating them on their hard work and efforts in getting their second station up and running.

I will expand upon the advantages of and uses for MU in an upcoming post. For those of you interested in setting up an MU site I will also be talking of how to I set the East Coast site up, the plugins I used and where to find futher information.

I will also be discussing how you can use WordPress, including an existing installation, or WordPress MU to create a community site. As with the NCI Eastcoast example, you do not have to run your whole site as a community site – you can just have it as an add-on to a normal WP site.

    What has been your experience with WordPress MU?

    I’ve been looking at implementing it, but it just seems to confusing to actually install…

    Man, if I could figure it out- looks like an incredible solution!

      It is easier if you are installing from fresh on a new domain or subdomain so that you do not have to alter databases.

      The main problem I had was working out how to use subdomains for the individual blogs using a shared server and Control Panel as I needed to set up a wildcard domain to handle them. I found the solution in Hostgator forums. Using subdirectories is easy.

      Once setup the backend is quite intuitive.

    • Posted July 3, 2009 at | Permalink

      It can be quite confusing to start using it. It kind of gives the impression that you can run sites on multiples domains, but you need a plugin called WPMU multi-site to do that and even that needs modding.

        Heh, that is an excellent question. I am also interested in getting my wife to co-author a blog with me, we’ll see how it goes.

        To get your partner interested, it helps if it’s about something they really enjoy. If they love playing sports, make it about that. If they love doing community service, make a blog on that. Less arm twisting that way and it’s more enjoyable.

    There is a steep learning curve with Joomla and I found the plugins not too reliable – although I usually ended up finding ones that did work after some trial and error.

    The backend is not as easy to navigate and manage in Joomla – as you are familiar with WP I would stick with it if you can – using MU or other multi site managers.

  6. Posted May 18, 2009 at | Permalink

    I was looking out to use this but has many doubts in my mind. thanks for clearing my queries this has helped a lot.

    • Posted May 20, 2009 at | Permalink

      I tried MU first using a test set up on a subdomain of mine. I normally test new things either this way or on my PC’s own server. The latter is quick and easy as there is no uploading involved – just tranferring files via explorer to the correct folders.

      A good way of installing a server on your own computer is by using bitnami (http://bitnami.org/) as it not only includes all the server software you need but also modules for WordPress and other open source applications.

    The new site looks great. I have been hesitant to use WPMU because of some bad experiences I had with it in the past, but its exciting to see that the WPMU community is growing and the WPMU code continues to improve. An alternative I have been watching is WP-Hive, which allows one installation of WordPress to be used for multiple sites. WP-Hive is a WordPress plugin.

  9. Posted May 19, 2009 at | Permalink

    I like the WordPress MU concept, but I still think there can be some improvements made to it. The last time I tried it out on one of my websites, I couldn’t install it because it conflicted with my existing install of wordpress on my main domain. So I could only install it on a sub-domain, and not the sub-directory like I wanted it to, hehe. But…. when I did get to try it out on the sub-domain I really liked it :)

    Till then,

    • Posted May 25, 2009 at | Permalink

      If you found WordPress to be frustrating, you will very likely find WordPress MU to be more frustrating. To me, WordPress works smoothly, but WordPress MU presents a number of challenges because its code is not updated as frequently and plugins don’t always work right. Also, WordPress was made for what it does, whereas, WordPress MU is an effort to use WordPress code in a multi-user environment.

      I encountered a number of issues with WordPress MU. If you have multiple users/authors, it still is the best way to go. If you have only one user/author (yourself), consider the WP-Hive plugin for WordPress, which allows you to use one WordPress installation for many blogs.

      I’ve played around with WP-Hive and it seems great. My main concern is that WP-Hive is developed by a single programmer in his spare time, and his scheduled release for the next version was months ago but it is still not out yet. This could pose problems if he doesn’t have time to upgrade the plugin for future releases of WordPress.

      I agree. The concept behind WPMU is simple enough, but I found it a bit complex to install and manage without learning a lot about how it works. I imagine that when WPMU and WordPress merge, the new version will have the same power without WPMU’s awkward ways of doing things.

    I’ve been using WP for a while now and I have to say it appears to be a lot more powerful and flexible than I expected. We only scratch the surface of even it’s capabilities let alone the potential of WPMU. I will be very interested to see your follow-up posts on WPMU as it looks like a pretty good addition to WP. Community seems to be the way to go at the moment and already using WP makes MU the obvious next step. The NCI is a worthy charity by the way, I’m not too far from the coast in the south of the UK and too many people get themselves in trouble just off the coast.

    I want to set up one blog in WordPress. One topic. Several areas of discussion. But I want to invite a dozen different people with individual identities online, so that they are able to add, edit, everything. How do I research this? Every time I look it up online, I bump into WordPress Multi-User. Which I think is several blogs together. This is only one blog (the company) with several separate-name people (people in my team). Do you know the answer?

    • Posted July 7, 2009 at | Permalink

      This can probably be fixed by setting up one WordPress blog (not WordPress MU) and giving each user “admin” access so everyone can edit all posts. Simply go to the WordPress control panel under “Users,” and then edit the security settings for each user.

      The only risk is that any user with “admin” access can delete the posts, but I assume that is a risk you are willing to take by allowing each person to edit the posts.

    I recently switched my blog over from WordPress MU to the single-user version. I offered blogs to cancer survivors and anyone affected by cancer. Things went well until I wasn’t able to keep up with the splogs & finally threw in the towel. I just relaunched the site & there’s still some work to be done & hope some of the legitimate bloggers will return as authors on the new site.

    I want to set up one blog in WordPress. One topic. Several areas of discussion. But I want to invite a dozen different people with individual identities online, so that they are able to add, edit, everything. How do I research this? Every time I look it up online, I bump into WordPress Multi-User. Which I think is several blogs together. This is only one blog (the company) with several separate-name people (people in my team). Do you know the answer?

      WordPress MU doesn’t have higher demands on your server and bandwidth than a traditional installation of WordPress. The real question relates to total visitors to the sites per day. In other words, there is no difference between 100,000 visitors to one WordPress blog or 10,000 visitors to ten blogs on WordPress MU (for a total of 100,000 visits). Either way, the number of visitors is what matters.

    hi.If you have (something).WPMU.example.com it will direct it back to your main domain. (WPMU.example.com) and the apache handler will do the rest.

    We have one of our blogs in a multi-user platform and have been happy with the results. The search engines seem to give a little more nod to WP’s mu platform.

      If you look at the HTML of a page created by WordPress MU, you will see that it looks just like a regular WordPress site. Search engines like that the site is not full of extra code; WordPress and WordPress MU produce very simple, clean HTML code without the extra garbage (unnecessary code, etc.) thrown in by other content management systems.

    It difficult to find many examples of WordPress being used for anything other than blogs. You can find examples of it being adapted for online portfolios, galleries, and ecommerce uses, but not on any really major sites.

      I agree. Major websites often need tools not included in WordPress, such as tracking the publishing process from the writer, editor, and editor-in-chief. However, WordPress is an easy way for a small business to create a small website, even if they don’t want a blog. I’ve seen small businesses with up to 500 pages using WordPress, and the sites didn’t have a blog, per se.

    I had all sorts of problems trying to figure out Joomla. When I started learning how to use WordPress I had a much easier time. This is the first I’ve heard of WordPress MU. I suppose it’s time to get confused all over again. LOL

    WordPress MU is a good platform, but to work in maximum performance, you need a hosting account with some fetures installed on it. Host Gator have a plan with this features enabled, as you said . Than you only should be able to get users in creating blogs on your WP MU platform, and start reading them :D

    Interesting Post, WPMU has caused problems with plugins that regular Wp never experienced. You can see one of my WP blogs here: deer hunting tips.

  218. Posted December 24, 2009 at | Permalink

    I have designed my website but not constructed yet. I was advised to use wordpress as I mentioned “blog” as part of my website. I don’t want to blog myself. I want people to create their own blogs on my website (because it is very much subject related), and also other people can leave comments on each others’ blogs.

  219. Posted December 30, 2009 at | Permalink

    I am still using WPMU and it is working with me smoothly. :)

    WordPress Multi User is like owning your own WordPress but it’s your own domain. As long as subdomains don’t have duplicate contents as the main site, you shouldn’t have any problem with search engines indexing your blog.

  221. Posted January 14, 2010 at | Permalink

    Good point. I used the WPMU Multi-Site plugin when I setup WordPress MU. I’m not sure if there are any other plugins that do the same thing.

  222. Posted January 14, 2010 at | Permalink

    Thanks for the information on WordPress Multi User. I’m just getting started with WP after several years using traditional websites. I can’t believe all the flexibility the plugins provide.

    WordPress MU is definitely recommend for those with multiple blogs to control and look after.

  224. Posted January 16, 2010 at | Permalink

    I’m glad I chanced across your post. I was considering WordPress for my next site, I think this article sealed it. Thanx

    I didn’t realize there was a HostGator support forum that discussed WordPress MU. Thanks for the tip. The discussion on the HostGator forum was really helpful.
