    I am designing a website for a client who requires the ability for several entities to have varying degrees of access to the site. This is a school which is sponsoring a club for girls from grades 7-9. The site will be consist of:

    main page
    parents page
    community partners page
    team page
    about page
    clubs pages – there will be 17 clubs (to begin) each club page will have a dozen or so girls

    There will be team leaders that will need the ability to change just about anything, an events calendar on the main page (maybe a plug-in?) and individual event calendars on each club page, then teachers who will need to change their pages and have the ability to upload forms (pdf) to their page and to the parents page, and then they want each girl to be able to not only have access to the their own club page (about a dozen girls per club), and then they want each girl (a total of approximately 200) to be able to create and design their own page.

    Is all of this possible with WordPress?

    You could use WordPress MU or wait for WordPress 3.0 and then everyone could have their own blog. Would that work?

    How soon is WordPress 3.0 coming out? I need to have something up for them to look at in a few days and they need to have the ability to see most of it done by the 3rd week in July.

    Will WordPress 3.0.0 have the ability to do everything that I outlined?

    Could I start building it now and then convert it to 3.0 when it comes out? I am using 2.9.2 right now.

    Will this be stable enough? This is for a public school system and they are very picky!

    WordPress 3.0 rc3 is decently stable and you’ll be able to automatically upgrade to the final release when it comes out. I see no reason not to try it now. That would probably be the best way to see if you can get what you need from it.

    OK, I downloaded 3.0 and installed it. Very easy! I went into wp-config.php and added the line: define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true);
    But when I click on tools, it still just says Import and Export. What did I do wrong?

    One more problem, I tried adding a “custom menu”, but nothing shows up. Site is:



    just check (this happened to me and looks like to you also)

    I copied and pasted define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true); from the install instructions, somewhere along the way fancy quotes were substituted – so try deleting all the ‘ and reentering that character from your keyboard.

    Wow, what a simple fix. Thank you SO much!
