WordPress is one of the simplest self-hosted blogging platforms around, but working with multisite is a different beast altogether. Sure, there are a few online guides and tutorials, but this is just one of those things you should really read up on before diving in. Mika Epstein, one of the top volunteers in the WordPress Support Forums, has just published WordPress Multisite 101, a pay-what-you-want eBook available in EPUB and PDF formats. The suggested donation for the book is $5, but depending on how useful you find it, there’s nothing stopping you from sending $10, $20, maybe even $100, or the inevitable nothing if that’s how you roll. The book covers everything from getting started to running your own network, and you will always have┬áthe forums if you need further assistance.

If you’re a WordPress plugin developer, you may have received an email from an address other than WordPress.org notifying you that your plugin had been removed. These emails are fake and designed to gather your login information for unknown nefarious reasons. Emails from the WordPress.org Plugin Repository are always sent from a WordPress.org email address, so if you receive an email from elsewhere claiming official WordPress.org Plugin Repository business, delete it immediately. If you have already fallen victim to this phishing attack, you should change your passwords as soon as possible.

Twenty Twelve, the next great WordPress default theme, has unfortunately been removed from the 3.4 development cycle and pushed back to 3.5. There is no specific reason given for the change, but it seems likely that the team would rather focus on the core functions as WordPress 3.4 draws closer to its inevitable April release. If you already have Twenty Twelve activated and are using trunk, make sure that you activate another theme before upgrading to the latest, as Twenty Twelve will be removed. If you want to continue to use Twenty Twelve, you can grab it from GitHub for now.

After several years of success with Google Summer of Code, WordPress was not accepted as a mentoring organization for 2012. The reasons for this are not clear, and at this point it’s not worth speculating until the WordPress team hears back from Google during an upcoming feedback meeting. Despite this momentary hitch in their plans, the core WordPress developers are not throwing out the idea of a developing version 3.5 as a mentorship-focussed release without Google’s backing. We’ll have more news on this as it becomes available.
