WordPress MU 1.2

Posted on March 2007 at about 5:17 AM by hwa

WordPress MU 1.2 just released not long ago, according to Donncha, most of the changes are bug fixes, but there are some security fix as well, so it’s advised that all the WordPress MU user upgrade to the latest version! And if you encounter any problems, please go to WordPress MU forum.

Apparently there are some problems with the theme in WordPress MU 1.2, but worry not! Because version 1.2.1 is here!! 😆 So if you upgrade from 1.2, all you have to do is just change the following files:

  • wp-admin/themes.php
  • htaccess.dist
  • wp-includes/version.php
  • wp-admin/admin-db.php
  • wp-admin/themes.php
  • wp-admin/wpmu-themes.php

Oh and don’t forget to go "Site Admin > Themes" and click save to update the theme list! 😉

WordPress MU Review

Posted on November 2006 at about 3:07 AM by hwa

Remember that few days ago i mentioned about playing around with WodPress MU? Now i have a very simple yet straight forward conclusion on how i think about WordPress MU.

Honestly and seriously, i’m kind of disappointed with WordPress MU 1.0, it’s not because of the features, WordPress MU has all the features that a blogging software need to have, my brother even says that it’s better then Blogger.

But the thing i’m disappointed about WordPress MU is because it’s too rely on the administrator’s server skills. If you are going to host WordPress MU, you need to have a lot of control over your server, and know your server very well, for example if you want subdomain for all your users, then you have to enable Wildcard DNS, to do this you have to gain access to alter the httpd.conf, which to me is impossible because my hosting is shared hosting. 🙁

I really hope that there will be a workaround for this, or better solution in the future release, to me WordPress is the best piece of software for blogging purpose, and i hope that i can share the best part of WordPress together with my friends and my family. But for now, one thing for sure is that WordPress MU aren’t meant for those who want to manage a small size multiuser blogging service just for the sake of having fun with it.

Playing Around With WordPress MU

Posted on November 2006 at about 8:52 PM by hwa

Been setting up and played around with WordPress MU for the pass few days, after a few attempts to install WordPress MU, finally i got it running in my web directory.

So far WordPress MU is running great in my web directory, the only problem i found after my last install is i can’t logout after i go into one of my user’s backend account to check some setting, i have to clear my cookies in order to logout, other than that everything seems to be ok.

If everything runs well, i might consider of getting a domain and offer this service to the public, but i’m still not sure yet, a lots of things i need to do and make sure, even the WordPress MU it self also not very stable, or is it i’m not familiar with the system??

Fresh from oven!! WordPress Multi User or known as WordPress MU 1.0 just released today!!

WordPress MU is a multi user version of WordPress, the famous blogging software, it’s suitable for those who like to host WordPress with many user, for example like a blogging networks or something, and it’s actually the software that run WordPress.com for all this while.

According to Matt, to install WordPress MU is a little bit more complex than the usual 5 minute install of regular WordPress, sorry to say that i’m not very sure how complex the installation is, but WordPress MU had gone through more than a year of heavy development before it’s stable enough to release to the public.

Other than that Matt also announce the release of bbPress, a very lightweight forum that is totally supports complete user and login integration with WordPress.
