Snowboard Mommy’s Favorite WordPress (Multisite) Hacks

Smith Rock, Oregon
Well, it’s summer so I am digging myself out of WordPress Multisite development (instead of 4 feet of powpow).

Unbeknownst to me, developing for WordPress Multisite is a lot like riding at Mt. Bachelor in zero-visibility freezing fog.  As luck would have it, I have plenty of experience with this.

In hopes of a blue bird powder day (see photo, Left), I am documenting the things that I have figured out and the websites that I have found useful in hopes that other plugin developers and multisite administrators won’t have as hard a time finding this information.

Also, since I’d rather be snowboarding, it probably wouldn’t hurt to have another pair of eyes to catch my mistakes. So feel free to give me a holler if you notice anything that needs attention!

Snowboard Mommy cannot recommend enough:
