  • Thanks Steve

    I understand wordpress.com is a good example of multi-site but i also know Automatic is behind it. I checked out Edublogs.org but it seemed to me that every sign up was a multi-site install. I have read the WPMUdev article and it seems that it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Steve any suggestions on a host for something like this?

  • I did a meetup on multisite last month, http://bit.ly/wp-multisite

    Over 100 sites can be safe if the site is configured and secured properly.

    Performance will definitely be an issue.

    You’d have to provide a lot more info to get detailed answers to your questions.

  • I just ended up buying a premium plug in to handle all this because I can’t take it anymore. I had tried looking at the BBPress support forums but it all had to do with hard coding which I don’t understand and it would be erased with any updates anyway.
