In addition to the freedom that WordPress offers to its users, it also offers a great deal of flexibility to its administrators and managers. One of the greatest features of WordPress is the ability to set up a multisite environment, allowing you to stand up an entirely new website in minutes. WordPress Multisite offers you the option to set up new websites using subdomains or subdirectories off of the original installation point and, through various plugins and configuration settings, you can take it even further. During this presentation, Curtis Grymala will briefly explain how a default multisite installation of WordPress works, how to expand that to fit your unique situation, and explore the possibilities of using domain mapping to use unique URLs for individual sites within the multisite installation. For many higher education institutions, though, even multisite is not broad enough to fit the information architecture of our websites. That's where Multi-Network comes into play. At UMW, the university website is built on a WordPress Multi-Network environment, with nearly 30 multisite setups running inside of a single WordPress installation. Grymala will touch on the basics of setting up WordPress to work as a Multi-Network tool, and offer tips to get plugins and themes working more efficiently in this unique environment.
