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.
