Web Services is in the process of upgrading WordPress for our campus. Until now, we have been using a very old multi-blog setup that gave us basically what we needed until native WordPress multisite functionality was mature and readily available.

As of WordPress 3.0, blog administrators have the ability to create a network of sites. Web Services will now have improved control over administrative privileges and a centralized control panel to manage all blogs at once.

As part of a housekeeping and security effort, we have pared down the number of plugins and themes available. We have also removed a number of outdated or obsolete blogs, with each blog owner’s approval.

While most endusers will not notice a difference, there will be huge time savings on our end for blog setup and maintenance.

As always, let us know if you have any questions about WordPress, your blog, or how to use it.
