I just created a WordPress multisite installation. It’s not the simplest thing to do, but I think I got things mostly working using domain-based sub-sites. The first thing I had trouble with was uploaded images not displaying in the sub-sites, although they still worked in the main site (this site). I could upload images with no problems, either as a post featured image or as an image embedded in a post. The image file would make it into the correct directory on the server (blogs.dir/[blog id#]/year/month/day). I could also edit the image in the WordPress editor. The problem was that the uploaded images would not display in the post. Here’s what finally worked for me…
Another ongoing WordPress project I’ve been working on is TheSuperUgly.com, a site for artist SuperUgly AKA John Williams. HE’s an all-around talent who draws and paints, podcasts, and makes some crazy music and has a lot of clever little things to say. I tried to incorporaet his art into the site design itself. The Blog and Twitter feed are two big elements to the site in addition to the gallery of his art.
Brandon is a freaking sweet dude who is by all accounts a metal-working genius. He is the type who has a brain that works so hard it make you feel really lazy just looking at him standing still. In addition to his technical expertise, he also dabbles in nude modeling. We did a little trade of expertise, whereby he got his Mullins Chain Drive site rebuilt using WordPress combined with a custom theme by yours truly. I, in return am getting some parts fabricated for my old ’61 Mini. The fabrication should prove to be 1st class, since Brandon has some pretty impressive credentials. Meanwhile, his website is humming along nicely. I’m looking foreward to seeing my new seat brackets…
