    Hi!

    I'm looking for best way to generate multiple Wordpress blogs.
    What is best way?

    I should be able to:
    - create blogs in different subdomains
    - install all the plugins once, select which one I use with which blog
    - use different templates in different blogs
    - custom edit each blogs templates code separately (Can't do this with WP MU?)

    Thanks!

    This is great forum!

    Use Wordpress MU, you can edit each template seperatly, but you have to import a new theme each time, rename it and assign it to that blog. Lot of work but wordpress MU rocks.

    Yes, that's lot of work to make new template every time.
    Didn't find WYSIWYG-template editor from Wp MU like in Wp.
    - How you edit templates easily?

    Do you have experience if all WP plugins are working correctly with WP MU also?

    Most have to be edited, you could make a plugin that allows each one to be editable template.
