[resolved] Upgrading multisite from one release of 3.3 to another (3 posts)

    I don't know if what I am describing is the intended behavior or if it has been reported before, but it seems a switch from earlier releases of 3.3, so I thought I'd mention it.

    When upgrading from 1 release in the 3.3 cycle (say from RC1 to RC2) on a network, the upgrade is obviously done as a network admin, so one would not be on a site dashboard. However, ever since the release that added the tabbed screen of "Welcome to WordPress", once the upgrade is complete, the user is taken to a URL similar to:

    http://www.mydomain.com/wp-admin/about.php?updated

    instead of:

    http://www.mydomain.com/wp-admin/network/

    That takes a user away from the network admin to a site admin screen, without any notice. The first time it happened I was checking my own RAM for premature failure.

    Yeah, it can be a little jarring. We'll add an about.php to network/ in 3.4.

    The "Welcome!" does help a bit. That said, it *does* know to take you back to network/update.php (you'll see a link at the very end of the page when it has "?updated" in the URL.

    I don't understand how multi-site SITE CREATION works in 3.3.

    I see "My Sites" after the upgrade, but where is the network admin panel as in 3.2.1?

    Again, how do you create a new multi-site *(in my case using the nomenclature http://domain.com/newsite)?

    Thank you!
