    I would like to make a suggestion to one of you who are very knowledgeable on working with WPMU.

    Make a series of videos (camtasia) teaching new people like me, how to use and work with MU. I for one, would $pay$ for membership in a site that offered this.

    1- Installing
    2- How to customize home.php
    3- Installing themes and plugins
    4- etc

    Just a thought.

    Wouldn't hold my breath for that one. Out of curiosity, how much would you be willing to $pay$ for something like that?

    WPMUDEV Premium is working on things like that. Tutorials for users and admins as well.

    Granted, the 4 things you listed should be well within the scope of an MU administrator.

    Tom,

    I'm currently working on a set of mu tutorials for my users. The tutorials are targeted to users and not admins, but they may help your users with some of the basics. Once I get them completed, I'll be making them available to the community at no charge. In the mean time, I do have a set of user tutorials for a regular WP install that you may find helpful...not a lot of difference on the user-side. You can see them here:

    Here is the draft list of what I'm planning to include in the new user tutorials for my mu site...I'm still developing the list so any suggestions for other topics are welcome and again, I will be making these available for free when complete:

    Once I get the new user tutorials complete, then I may tackle a set of tutorials for admins. The most difficult part for me is developing and organizing a logical outline of topics to cover so that I can keep the videos under 5-6 minutes each.

    So, if anyone would like to start a list of topics for an mu admin, then maybe I (and some other volunteers?) could start tackling this over the next few months as a way to give back to the community. This list would need to be very detailed so the topics could be covered in videos no longer than 5-6 minutes; therefore, a topic like "Installing Mu" would need to be broken down into several logical steps...and maybe even sub-divided into sub-domain installs and sub-directory installs.

    I have just posted a set of videos aimed at people who want a sub-site, walking them through signing up through to the First Post and adding Pics and Video.

    All is posted on http://www.newsturtle.com under the How To Page, and of course at the moment as the most recent posts and the recent videos on the main page.

    I hope this helps. Was done really quickly and I do have a weird Dutch accent, so you are warned.
