Is Multisite right for you?

Secrets and shortcuts you need to know…

A few years ago I jumped my organization onto Multisite, at first it was fantastic. WordPress, themes and plugins could be updated in a single dashboard. By clicking a few buttons and checking off a to-do list I had another site ready to go. This was fantastic!

Before long I was managing dozens of sub-sites and that to-do list was getting longer. Some elements couldn’t be shared and had to be duplicated manually. Wait, this is supposed to be dynamic and automated. Why am I doing more work than before?

In this talk I discuss my rough start with Multisite. How problems could have been minimized and the additional steps I take today to maintain this growing network.
