    I've looked through the posts here and didn't come up with any good answer to my question, so if this has been discussed in the past, I apologize in advance.
    I'm currently working on creating a new website for my employer and would like certain departments to have the ability to create blog posts for their newsletters. I'm just getting started with wordpress, so my experience with multisite is, well, non-exsistant. The site will not be a wordpress site, but I'm looking at incorporating wordpress for certain departments. I have uploaded, but not installed, wordpress in mysite/blog and wanted to know if its possible that when a user lands on our home page, clicks on a department that has a blog it would go to that particular blog. Department heads would have their own login to create posts for their own department. I'd like one installation, but have seen mention of using multiple installations for different departments. What is the best route? Thanks for any guidance!

  2. If it's a matter of management, that you need each department to have their own site, and their own pages and theme and design, then yes. Multisite is perfect. If they just need a few pages, then maybe not.

    Read this: http://tech.ipstenu.org/2011/dont-use-wordpress-multisite/ See if it explains it a bit.

    Read your link Ipstenu, thanks. I think I'll go with the CPT route!

    I've searched everywhere here, and having trouble finding a solution - I'm creating a model agency site, and they want each model to be able to login and post to a blog he or she has on her own page, for read only by others - how can I do this?? I've spent the whole day (11 hours) searching plugins and simple options, roles and blah blah - it seems like it should be simple, is there a simple way to link to an individual blog page for each user..? and if so, where do they login, as any user I have set up, when they try to login it just goes to error page.. Thank you! xx
