I enabled my wordpress 3.0 for multisite. It's all working great. I can create user blogs and it all works fine. What I want to do is a directory just like this site: http://www.stylemepretty.com/little-black-book/alabama
How are they doing this? I know if you "view portfolio" for a member listing it goes to a subdomain so they are using multisite. I think they are somehow filtering the members, but how? I need to show all the states and regions, then a pae with categories like the link example and the members. I need to be able to pull a list that is all the photographers from all the states, and then more specific like just photographers from alabama. I thought I could do this filtering blog users/authors? Any ideas? I'm not familiar with the searching through tags, but could it be an option to have each vendor tag their main post/page with something specific and sort and filter that way?
I just need ideas on how to work this solution please!! This is the first time I have worked with mu, it is really powerful!!
