WP Network, ok to put all your sites in one? (4 posts)

    I manage about 7 wordpress sites (all personal sites) and right now each is a separate installation. I've been debating with putting them all in a WordPress network and using the domain mapping plugin, but I wonder if the convenience will come with a performance/stability trade off. Assuming everything is optimized, cached, and backed up regularly, does anybody have any opinion on which way is better?

    I think I might ask my web host the same question, but I was interested to get a wider scope of opinion.

    Thanks! :)

    I would suggest keeping the sites separate. Since they were all built separately you might run into some compatibility issue when trying to export/import.

    What is the main reason that you want to consolidate the sites into a network? If the idea is to have easier management then I would suggested looking into the following solutions:

    https://wpremote.com/
    http://infinitewp.com/
    http://managewp.com

    If you want to be able to update content across all sites by using a single install a WordPress network could work, but beware it might be time consuming to get everything running properly unless you are experienced in this area.

    What host do you use?

    This is not the purpose of a WordPress network. Each site in the network has it's own content.

    WordPress.com uses multisite. So ... unlikely ;)
