WordPress MU with no replication of tables (10 posts)

    Hi guys,

    I have read a lot of stuff on this. Still i am not able to say one thing that "Is is possible to have a MU site without creation of extra tables?"

    My concern is to use a single database that can hold all users data. I am currently looking at WordPress Multisite as newbie and learning how to set it up as it looks similar to what i am looking.

    But please suggest on how this issue can be settled down in order to decide my choice of CMS.

    Regards,
    Samir.

    No. The extra tables are where each blog's information is stored. Kinda how it works.

    Overall, there really is no clear benefit in doing it in one table.

    Hi Andrea,

    Thanks a loads your prompt response. But is there any way to have multiple websites using a single wordpress install. Or you suggest anything.

    I have seen multisite functionality introduced in WordPress 3.0 I was looking towards it as a hope for this.

    I also went through

    http://joejacobs.org/software/yet-another-multi-site-manager/

    for multi sites manager. It claims it wont creates extra tables that MU creates during replication of blog.

    But can you please throw some light on new functionality that has been introduced as "Multisite" .

    Thanks again,

    Regards,
    Sam.

  4. I think you're misunderstanding tables and databases.

    1) WordPress multisite installs multiple sites on ONE database, using tables to separate individual content.

    2) You can install as many tables as you want onto a database (within the practical limits of database size).

    3) You can install multiple WordPress installs on one database by giving each WordPress install it's own prefix (this is handled in your wp-config.php file)

    In short, if you use MultiSite, you will have only ONE database :)

    Now. Is that what you want, or do you want to split your install across multiple databases?

  5. But can you please throw some light on new functionality that has been introduced as "Multisite" .

    It;s not new. It was WPMU and was rolled in to core. Thousands of installs - some extremely large - have been running this way for years. Some in one db, some with multiple db, ALL with dozens & hundreds and thousands of tables.

    Go get a test domain, Install wordpress. set up the now built in multisite feature. play around with it. Love it, embrace it.

    If it's good enough for wordpress.com, I'm sure it'll work out fine for you.

    I have installed it in my site backend and activated it. Also put the

    Create posts in your main blog. All posts will appear on the front page of your site. Remember to to add a post loop to home.php in the theme directory if it exists.

    option to checked.

    It has been suggested to add some loop to home.php so i have created it and tried several loops but the posts are not being fetched out.

    I tried searching for the documentation for this plugin but unable to find any solution till now.

    I know this plugin is solution for me because i saw it working very nicely on some websites.

    Please try to give solution for how to use this plugin with any documentation if it is having.

  8. I've written about it a lot in the forums.

    It has been suggested to add some loop to home.php so i have created it and tried several loops but the posts are not being fetched out.

    If you are using a regualr wordpress theme to show regular posts, then you do not need to add any loops. undo whatever you did. use the default theme to start.

    Under Super Admin -> Options, scroll down. Check the box to post to the main blog.

    Now go to a second site. Make sure the blog is public. Write a post.\

    It will show up in the main blog.

    Hi Andrea,

    Thanks a lot for your reply can you please tell me how to check if the blog is public.

    Also the child blog owner is having facility to change themes and create more sub-sites in his own blog.

    I dont want to have this. Only want to show him "Posts" and "dashboard" menu of his own site only.

    I am searching where is option to make the blog public.

    Regards,
    Sam.

    Hi Andrea,

    I have just checked out that the child blog is public. And the main site home.php is having this code.

    `<?php get_header(); ?>
    <div id="container">
    <div id="content" role="main">
    <?php get_template_part( 'loop', 'index' );?>
    </div><!-- #content -->
    </div><!-- #container -->
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>`

    Is it the same default code you were talking about in your previous response which i do not need to update?

    Still not able to get child blog posts to main blog.

    Very sorry to trouble you. But i am seriously not getting it.

    Regards,
    Sam.
