  • Resolved mbsmilevski



    I just recently started a site using WordPress. Now, I want to run another site and decided to read on the WP multi site feature. After reading a couple of hours, I thought I might get this right. Was I ever wrong?

  • Pfew, I was afraid inward links wouldn’t work but they do.
