I spent a good chunk of time yesterday testing whether I could use the Network (aka Multisite) features of WordPress. The three holdups were the directory structure requirement, the inability to use “site folders” for legacy installations, and the new permalink structure. All three can be overcome, so I’ll be converting the website over the next week. The advantage? I’ll be able to consolidate several WordPress installs under one system, and I can finally expand into topical sub-blogs in greater depth than I felt I could do with the existing site.
