    Hi there,

    After been using the 'ordinary' Wordpress for a while I'm now looking at the Wordpress MU: It looks promising and nice!

    Now I want to dislay a list of the registred blogs on the homepage - http://www.ubiquitous-computing.dk/wpmu/ - how can I do that in varies ways like: last blog updated, last blog registred, and so on...?

    Cheers,
    Adam

    Hi there again,

    I have now tried the List-all plugin...

    Because my web space - which is control by someone else - has the Virtual Host service off, I can't use the subdomain functionality on my Wordpress MU...

    How can I use the plugin anyhow? (I have tried to change the domain/path entries in the database but that only causes the site to 'chash')

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers,
    Adam,

    Adam, I'd suggest the easiest route(s) may be to:

    a) ask your hosting provider to make VHosts available (its no big deal for them to do
    b) change the package you're on with your host to one that has it enabled (it might be that the package you're on is very basic and if you upgrade then you get more functionality - don't forget, you can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear ; )
    c) move service provider

    I wouldn't change anything in the database or core files because any of your customisations (if you ever get them to work) will be overwritten when you update your WPMU package.

    shredder:

    Your response makes it sound like WPMU will just work off the tar. Yet my (recent) experience has been that a number of issues come up (garbled admin email, etc.).

    So that makes me wonder: exactly how much work did the sysops at the production sites have to do to make it work properly?

    I'd dearly like to use WPMU, whose feature list matches my needs exactly, but the task appears daunting...

    Use an earlier build. (Find one here: http://wpmudevorg.wordpress.com/) Shredder's post was written back in April, when the most recent posts *did* work right (al least without all the erros of the recent build) of the tar, assuming the server was set up correctly.

    Whoa. Indeed. Should have looked at the timestamp.

    Well, I did try r542 yesterday (as mentioned in my post to a separate thread) but it only did subdomains, not subfolders. Which version would you recommend I use that implements subfolders? Which is the most stable version for subdomains?

    And what broke the script so badly in the first place? If they're not using it already, it may be a good idea for developers to use Selenium for acceptance/regression testing. I'd gladly build and maintain such a project if I had the time; it proves to be an invaluable tool over time.
