WordPress 3.0 Walkthrough: Multsite Multisite is the most talked about new feature in WordPress 3.0 – the WordPress team has folded the functionality of WordPress Multiuser into the main WordPress project. So how do you use it? This tutorial assumes your are comfortable using FTP clients such as Filezilla and doing basic edits of WordPress files. 1. Download WordPress 3.0 release candidate. You can find it here. 2. Edit wp-config in your favorite text editor and add the following line: define(‘WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true); (I’d suggest adding it just above the line “// ** MySQL settings – You can get this info from your web host ** //”) 3.

The tutorial starts off by creating a dummy plugin which you then add functions to which give it the draggable/collapsible options within the Administration panel. John provides a sample plugin to use as well as a link to the article on the Codex that explains the add_meta_box function. This tutorial is mainly for those aspiring plugin authors as well as for those who would like to add this type of functionality to their own plugin. John should rename this video to add_meta_boxes explained in plain English because even I understood and learned a thing or two. Final though is that I would absolutely love to see more screencasts like these in the future and have them embedded into their respective Codex articles. How […]
