[closed] Wordpress mu 2.7? (175 posts)

    No hurry to get this out -- I just have some confusion. The homepage says...

    "WordPress MU, or multi-user, is designed to do exactly that. It is most famously used for WordPress.com where it serves tens of millions of hits on hundreds of thousands of blogs each day."

    If it is the software used on Wordpress.com and Wordpress.com is clearly using "2.7" then is Wordpress.com using a buggy trunk release? It seems Wordpress.com has been using 2.7 for a while?

    Anyway, thanks for the great software and all the hard work you do. I am just curious about this one thing.

    Dont confuse with wordpress 2.7 and wordpress mu 2.7

    Wordpress 2.7 is for single blog

    Wordpress Mu 2.7 is for multiple blog

    WP.com rolls in their OWN version. They don't use what comes out of trunk.

    aravin - don't confuse wp.com with wp.org. :)

    Wordpress.com is using version 2.7 - I just verified it by logging in to an old blog I have there. I am using the trunk version of Wordpress MU (2.7) and although there are some bugs, it does work. Just not ready to put it into a production environment yet.

    Since wordpress.com is using 2.7, can't some of the code there be used to get MU ready for it's debut in 2.7? Or is it that Wordpress.com does all their own work, and someone else is actually supporting WordPress MU? Because at this point that is what it looks like. :)

    Not complaining of course, I can wait since my project doesn't launch until March anyway.

    Or ... you can download the trunk version now and use it.

    Waiting is - a philosophy of patience, which I try to practice and encourage in others. The sentiment, that "all things that are to be, come in the proper time", is compatible with Tao and Buddhist teachings. It is an attempt to lay aside the angst caused in today's modern life. Originally phrased in Robert A. Heinlein's ground-breaking book "Stranger In A Strange Land."

    Nice to see someone who's fond of Heinlein :)

    Well, I DID say "I am using the trunk version of Wordpress MU (2.7)...", but I don't feel it is ready for a production site, which is why I can wait since my project isn't ready to launch anyway. I am testing the heck out of it this next few weeks, and each time I find a bug it is already reported and then fixed in a few days. :)

    I hope by Februrary 1st when the project goes live it will be at a point where I am comfortable using it in production.

    "If it is the software used on Wordpress.com and Wordpress.com is clearly using "2.7" then is Wordpress.com using a buggy trunk release? It seems Wordpress.com has been using 2.7 for a while?"

    There is a lot in the wordpress.com codebase that never gets to wpmu. (Some stuff I'd love to have for mu!) Enough so that I'm sure they treat wordpress.com and wpmu as separate product branches of the core code.

    If there are so many differences between wordpress.com, and wpmu, then why does it say on mu.wordpress.org that wordpress.com is in fact running Wordpress MU, if it's in fact something that's very different?

    It is running WPMU, however they do edit the code for their website. I am not sure, but I believe they are using the trunk version and just upgrading it when a new one comes out. Are my assumptions correct here?

    It's different in the fact they have a completely different setup and features.

    And if they were waiting for a release *here*, they wouldn't be running 2.7 there yet, would they?

    In the past, changes came here first, them wp.com. Now they don't. I don't have any inside info, but I would say wp.com getting upgraded is far higher a priority than releasing the free WPMU version. Just be observation.

    If you've ever signed up over at wp.com, you'd notice there's a few things they've even stripped out from MU, as well as plugin additions and custom code.

    And please remember that paragraph you pasted in has said the same exact thing, unchanged, for well over two years.

    Donncha told me he would give out the beta version today but I guess it will take tomorrow too... :)

    It's ready when it's ready. The more stable, the better.

    There's always checking out from trunk, so I'm not sure what the big rush is for something titled beta. :)

    But I want to push it out. I'm getting tired of looking at Gallery issues. :(

    edit: Actually I can wait. We hit a major issue with Gallery.

    reedit: I believe the poster is looking at this:

    So does Wordpress.com use Wordpress MU or not? The site here says it does?

    @lunabyte, I am actually using the trunc version so I am not in a hurry ^_^

    @tdjcbe, everything will be OK ;)

    taylhis - WordPress.com uses a highly customized version of WordPress MU. In the past as pointed out here it was merged from the MU codebase but these days merges are done on a regular basis directly from WordPress. That's why 2.7 appeared there before here.

    Sweet_Baby_Girl...How do we get the Beta version?

    The current svn version is calling itself 2.7-beta. You could get that.

    It looks really good.
    I really like the bar at the top like wordpress.com has.

    I've just announced the beta release. Thank you everyone for helping. We're almost at the final 2.7!

    That's awsome Donncha, this is most certainly the best release (beta or not) of WPMU yet.

    Looks really nice.
    Any reason why "Add User from community" disappeared?

    Hmm...Tryign to install on a dev site from scratch and getting:

    'Warning: constant() [function.constant]: Couldn't find constant VHOST in /wpmu-settings.php on line 103'

    'Warning: constant() [function.constant]: Couldn't find constant VHOST in /wpmu-settings.php on line 134'

    'Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /wpmu-settings.php:103) in /wpmu-settings.php on line 137'

    No problems on this server before running 2.5 and 2.6...

    Probably means the wp-config.php file didin't get created correctly. Delete the db tables as well as the wp-config.php file and reinstall.

    If you search the forums, you'll see further discussion on the error.

    Hello,

    Maybe this has been discussed before... I've searched the forums, however didn't find anything...

    of course compliments for the 2.7 beta...

    ok, I have a test installation of wpmu 2.7 (never tested any other versions before) running together with the domain mapping plugin with the following configuration:

    main site: http://wpmudomain.net

    a test blog is activated on: (1) http://test.wpmudomain.net

    now the test blog is domain mapped to (2) http://mappeddomain.net

    the test blog is accessible via (1) and (2), so everything works fine so far...

    I can also login to the administration panel via both addresses (1) and (2) whereby in both cases I will be redirected to the admin panel on (2) http://mappeddomain.net/wp-admin/ ...

    however the "Visit site" link in the admin header always directs to http://test.wpmudomain.net, what's not perfect but would not be that an issue, however the "Log Out" link directs to http://test.wpmudomain.net/wp-login?action=logout&etc... so that logging out from the admmin panel, which is on http://mappeddomain.net/wp-admin/ is not possible and causes the error message:

    You are attempting to log out of test

    Please try again.

    Thank you in advance for any helpful information...

    - ds

    Just a question about 2.7-beta: is there a plan to get rid of / thin the herd of the top nav stuff? A lot of it looks redundant to the stuff in the LH navigation?

    But, oh man, do I want to install a stable version in production! I'm really going to enjoy the quick post and comment features.
