I'm starting a project to create a company intranet inside WordPress MU.
The idea behind the site is to have a main page (which is the main site) then departments have their own sub sites. There will be about 6 sites in total.
I have a couple of questions -
1. Is there any easy to to replicate changes made on the main site, down the structure to the other sites? For example, if I wanted to setup some SEO plugin at the moment I would need to configure it 6 times on each site. Would be nice if I could apply settings for one plugin, throughout the other sites.
2. Is it possible to setup a default site, with a few default pages, posts, links, etc - then when a new site is created it just copies off this template.
3. Is there a way to have a collection of images which all the sites can see? As well as add their own but not interfere with the other sites. For example, have a "Default Images" location, which all sites will see, but they can also add their own as normal. Perhaps this could be combined with question two - add default images to a default install.
If anyone else has any experience, or recommendations for an intranet based MU site I would like to hear them :)
