Which CMS for multiple sites?
# November 11, 2009 at 6:36 am
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?# November 12, 2009 at 4:06 am
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.# November 13, 2009 at 12:25 pm
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.# November 15, 2009 at 1:02 am
Yea, it sounds like that one "Reading" setting of "Home Page is: Blog or Page" is going to be the only thing you’ll need to figure out how to change on the new sites that are created.Quote:When you have a hammer, everything’s a nail.
If I had to do that, I’d definitely try WPMU first.
