Hi. I have created a new WP Multi. My plans are to have it as an authors network, free service for good authors who cant afford (or not technically capable) to have their own blogs.
My plan is to have it as simple as possible. based on this:
1- One theme or two, with the ability to customize the theme to reflect each individual author. For instance, to have 2 locations in the theme where I can put a custom photo depending on whose blog is that, and another spot which will have a short info about him. I really dont know if this is possible, but you surely understand that it is impossible to have a separate theme for every author, if the number is 100 for instance. So, how can I make a specific widget for instance (where I will put the authors photo), make it customizable to show different photos (depending on whose author that blog is), without having to have separate themes for each individual author.
2- I want the authors to be able to post each to his blog via email. He sends an email message containing his post, to a unique email address, and his post will be posted to his blog. I know this is available on normal WP, but I dont know how to do it on Multi.
3- I want to have the main page list latest articles from all authors, and to have an index of all authors.
Are these all possible to do, How?
Thank you very much for the help
