WPWeekly Episode 83 – The WordPressMU Gurus

wordpressweekly1In this fun filled episode of WordPress Weekly, I was privileged to be joined by two awesome members of the WordPress community, Andrea and Ron Rennick also known as the WordPress MU Gurus. During the show, we talked about a number of different things related to WordPress MU including the impending code base merge with WordPress, plugin and theme compatibility, the differences between WordPress and WordPress MU, usability enhancements to the WordPress MY back-end interface, and much more. Near the end of the show, we talk about the trend of plugins switching to a paid model which I find to be a very interesting topic.

  2. I guess, I’m part of the “Millions” of folks listening to the mp3. Andrea and Ron did a great job demystifying MU. It’s really not that hard. I did a good amount reading first, but there are even youtube videos on setting it up.

    Of course Andrea has been great in WPMU forums and I’m patiently awaiting Ron’s Hybrid version of Buddymatic. Something for you jeff to think about given that you use Hybrid News (modified).

    After this talk about the merge and the fact that BP trunk runs on regular WP, I’m stuck on what to develop on. My goal is a BP site with ONE blog. I started on MU because of this but worry that WP plugins won’t work. But, if I develop on BP trunk and regular WP, I’ll be stuck with whatever plugins or other BP code breaks without MU.

    Ah, the possibilities.

  4. What a great show. I’m really looking forward to the merge. We’re working on a project with WPmu and hopefully this will make things easier as we’re already running a WP powered site.
