I started using Multisite back when it was called WordPress Multiuser or WordPressμ. I used it mainly to run development websites for myself. Each time I had a new client or a new theme to build out, I would start up a new blog and instantly have quite a jumpstart on the development process. Granted, there are lots of other ways to improve the development process, but that was one thing that really helped me.
Now, with WordPress Multisite I use it to run a small, but growing network of blogs. I have set up clients with Multisite, showing them how to map domains to each blog to make running a network of company sites easier. I’ve even helped a friend or two set it up in order to manage their personal blogs more easily.
Your turn. When did you start using Multisite? Back during the μ days, or recently? What did you find was the most difficult part about getting started?
How do you use Multisite? What Plugins, or techniques, have you found useful? Do you have any interesting implementations worth checking out?
