Hi, I've read the documentation about MultiSite but have some questions left:
While permalinks will continue to work, the main site (i.e. the first one created) will have an extra entry of blog, making your URLs appear like domain.com/blog/YYYY/MM/POSTNAME.
Does this mean when I have one Dutch blog on domain.nl, and when a visitor will read my blogpost, he now see the URL domain.nl/blog/blog-post-slug/? They mention here that this is only for the first site, so when people will look a blog post at my English site on domain.com they will see domain.com/blog-post-slug/ like normal?
2) Can slugs be the same on different multi-sites? So when I have a Dutch website for Belgium on nl-be.domainname.com/slug-name/ and I have a Dutch website for Holland, that slug is also going to be 'slug-name' like domainname.com/slug-name/. Is that a problem?
Your first site on a fresh install will put uploaded files in the traditional location of /wp-content/uploads/, however all subsequent sites on your network will be in the /wp-content/uploads/sites/ folder, in their own subfolder based on the site number, designated by the database. These files will be accessible via that URL.
In my not-multi-site setup I use my own folder calles 'images'. Is there any easy way to avoid these long URL's in multisite? What if you don't have acces to .htacces if you for example choose for hosting from Synthesis.
Global terms (i.e. sharing tags and categories between sites on the network) is not available in WordPress 3.0.
Do I understand it correctly that domain.com/tag/tagname/ and domain2.com/tag/tagname/ not possible is?
I ask these question because I'm considering using Multisite setup for Multilangual website.
