[resolved] Installing multisite - 'Network' does not show on menu (3 posts)

    I've just installed WP 3.1.2. Now what I want to do is to create sub-sites (eg subsite1.mainsite.com, subsite2.mainsite.com, etc

    Now the first step to this is to insert define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true); in the wp-config.php so that 'Network' will appear on the Tools tab. But this isn't happening.
    I've checked and rechecked: this line of code is in the right place in that file. But 'Network' does not appear on the TOOLS tab.

    Any ideas how I should fix this?

    Two things:

    It looks like you may have fancy quotes on that define. Make sure the define has straight quotes (ex. define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true ); ).

    Also make sure that the define is above the /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */ line.

    Thanks, Tim.

    No, I had no fancy quotes. But I finally found my silly mistake: I wrote it as define(‘WP_ALLOW MULTISITE’, true); instead of define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true); (ie missing underscore between ALLOW and MULTISITE.

    This is all fixed now.
