WordPress MU 1.0 Launches

Posted By Darren Rowse 25th of October 2006 Blogging Tools and Services 7

WordPress MU 1.0 has been launched today.

This is a ‘Multi User’ blog platform (it’s what is behind WordPress.com) and is designed to run many blogs on the one install rather than just one – something I know many bloggers will be interested in.

It does sound like it is more complicated to set up than a normal WP install but from what I’ve heard it’s pretty stable and should help a lot of bloggers with multiple blogs keep their blogging in better order.

If you give it a go – let us know how you find it.

  1. I tried MU in its beta. I found it a little cumbersome and limited for the users you are supplying to. The users on the other end can not get into the code and change things for example. This limitation really bothered me.

    has that changed since beta?

    Other than that it wasn’t too bad. Better than blogger (IMO).

  2. Technically, it’s not multi-user as regular WP is multi-user. It is, multi-blog though. Wsh they’d get the nomenclature down. :)

  3. I second Aaron on the nomenclature mini-rant.

  4. […] Found via problogger.net Darren tipped me off (as he usually does) to WordPress’ announcement of WordPress MU 1.0. The MU stands for multi-user allows you to “manage and host” thousands of blogs instead of one. […]

  5. I have installed the beta version on my site:


    It seems to be the best multi-user platform available that I could find.

  6. I tried it in the beta stage and liked it – WP is the best blogging system so far
    it spread among bloggers like fire in dry leaves
