I am trying to create a site where people can register to have their own site hosted as a sub-domain. I am currently looking at WordPress Mu but that seems more along the lines of a blog instead of an actual site. I could probably use it, but that would be a lot of editing. Are there any other easier options for me or should I stick with WP Mu?
I don’t see why not, although WP is a blogging platform, I have used it mostly for normal sites – its quite versatile and easier to learn how to customise than other CMS’s. Not only that but it also has awesome linkage and tools which would make people want a WP site over something else. You might just have to spend a little time learning, but it would be worth it.
wordpress MU sounds like a great idea for what you are needing. Your knowledge is well rooted in wordpress (so not much of a learning curve) and it is what runs WordPress.com which is similar in stucture to what you seem to be wanting to do.
Now I have no experience with it, but I imagine you could get it to do what you need.
Thanks for the feedback guys! What I am probably going to do is make custom themes that turn WordPress into basically a CMS type site. I will install some plugins and probably mess around with the back-end to make it feel more like a CMS.
