    I started using Wordpress 2 days ago and since then I've installed Wordpress 1.5 and also Wordpress MU. I found MU to be much easier to set up and use, but what's the multiple user feature everyone is talking about? I don't get the simplicity part of it, what do I not have to do with MU that I would have to do with 1.5? AS far as I can see, I'd still have to create multiple databases, is that right? And I don't see anywhere to create a new blog. And the page I just created is at http://www.mydomain.com/wpmu, shouldn't it be at some subdomain? Sorry, I just started using it 2 days ago and I'm trying to understand how I should be pumping out websites with it. Pretty eager to get going with it.

    To simplify my question:

    I've already got a site made at http://www.mydomain.com/wpmu, so how do I make a second site? I don't see any options to create a new blog/site anywhere.

    Nevermind, got it. Stupid theme I was using didn't have the meta options. When I changed themes, I figured it out.

    Also, in the backend there's a Site Admin menu, which WP doesn't have. In that, there's submenus and in the Blogs one, an option at the bottom of the page to manually add blogs.
