I figured today would be a good day to do some work on Sonney.com. I wanted to clean up the sidebar a little, get the showtimes up, populate the event calendar, and a couple of other updates.
While I was in there, I figured I’d take a look at the new MultiSite Support – something that was a bit complicated in WordPress 2.x. It’s included by default in WordPress 3.x, and I wanted to give it a once-over. In a word: Nifty. It’s now REALLY easy to spin off additional sites on a single domain. They also did a really nice piece of work on the admin side, so that you can set “always on” plugins and everything. There is even a plugin for domain mapping, so you can map “external” domains to the spin-off site.
Well, I needed a site I could test it out with. I also need a site to do a proper podcast for Alchemist In The Evening. I think it took longer for DNS to propagate than it did for me to get the actual wordpress instance up and running with podPress.
That being said, I’m working on the edits now to make each episode into a single mp3, and will start by trying to get at least one old episode a day re-mastered until I’m caught up. With any luck, you’ll be able to download and listen to the shows you missed very soon now.
More news, and a link when it’s fully up (and re-themed and all that jazz). Watch this space for updates….
