    Hi

    This is a plugin for adding more than one site.
    I really dont understand why WP doesnt make it standard to add multiple sites.
    Many people have more than one site and many people dont know how to write CSS or html..
    I found this plugin but i am not sure how it works..
    You know, i have about 10 sites and it is very annoying to switch all the time from site to site...

    thanks

    It is standard.

    There is no plugin.

    You have to activate it, but it's built in. The reason it's not a magic switch is that running a Multisite requires you to understand how to edit files on your server among other things, so if you can't do that, you may not be ready for it.

    Hey

    Some time ago i did the tutorial and i could see in the dashboards "my sites"
    But than i lost all my plugins of the first domain and i didnt knew what to do.
    I hope one day it will be possible for people who cant read codes to work with multisites...
    I have to admit that i cant edit filse on the server.
    I dont even understand what that means!
    I am a little frustrated because what to do when i will have about 50 sites, which means 50 different dashboards.
    thanks anyway

  4. I am a little frustrated because what to do when i will have about 50 sites, which means 50 different dashboards.

    Even with Multisite you have 50 separate dashboards. You're running 50 separate sites, no matter one. Multisite gives you one place to install.

    There are tutorials out there if you need more help.

    hi Ipstenu

    Yes 50 dashboards is ok but all in one account would make it more clearer.
    I may try out some tutorials than.
    thank you

    Hi Ipstenu

    I have another question.
    When i add new profiles in Google Analytics
    f.e:
    http://www.love dotcom
    http://www.peace dotcom

    they both have the same UA code
    Is that normal?

    Thanks

  7. Not really a Multisite Question but... :)

    Separate domains CAN use the same UA code, it's just a tracking thing. I track all my subdomains (tech.ipstenu.org and ipstenu.org for example) from the same code, but my separate domains use separate ones. You can add domains and get separate UAs via Google.

    Hi Ipstenu,

    Yes i know, its not a multi site question.
    But meanwhile i now know ;)
    I think i will not check it out ( multis site) because there is a change that i will mess up the data.
    And than i lose my whole account and i have to reinstall the whole.
    I first will learn about it, watching the video tuts on you tube.
    I remember this very good vid.

    once I tried it out and it worked..
    Only there was something wrong with the plugins.
    They disappeared from the main domain to one of the other sites.
    that is why i removed the whole and reinstalled the normal WP
    Thanks for the help!

    Hi Ipstenu,

    Still i have one more question.
    Let say that i try it again till it works is it safety?
    When i mess up is there a way to restore the previous account?
    I would like to experiment because thats the best way to learn i guess...

    thanks

  10. I can't watch videos where I am right now.

    For what it's worth, you can mess up ANY site with a plugin. So long as you're taking GOOD backups, you can always recover.

    Well i first take a full backup than.
    yes but i think it is almost impossible working with WP without plugins.
    I Always check their popularity.
    Its a really good video.
    You here from me later
    Thanks

  12. It depends on what you want to do. There's no plugin I 'have to use' though :) I have an install using none. Works fine.

    yes, maybe when you begin to understand the whole program than you dont need to use a plugin.
    But still i got the seo and the google sitemaps on it..
    some plugins are nice but i am never sure what they leave behind in the html pages. Unfortuanaly i cant read these codes
    ciao

  14. WordPress's SEO capability is built in. You can add to it, but most people rarely need it. Write good content, and you're covered.

    As for sitemaps, did you know Google will use your RSS feed for that too? :D
