    Hi guys, I was searching on the net for few hours now and pff can't find any good instructions how to set up the blog network, so I hope meybe somone here can tell the process how can this be done.
    I have some blog and want to give others option to create subdomain when registering so it would be theirdomain. mysite. com (wordpress script)

    Please can someone tell me the process with instructions or give link where this is well written, cos I really can't find any good instructions.

    So to make things clear I want to know how to install the network, so user can automatically join and register subdomain (I installed the wp network, just don't know how to make that one). How can this be done? Please advice guys or girls.
    Is there any option or something? Cos I enabled in super admin Both sites and user accounts can be registered. but there is no option on site where can user register and join.

    Thanks! :eek:

    Ok, just figured out :)
    template wasn't well made so I had some issues, but I simply needed to edit template and it's cool now, cos option is displaying.
    If you have any advices I'll be very glad to receive them :)

    Regards

    Here's a guide I just uploaded about setting up a blog network:

    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/member-downloads/282587-get-blog-network-best-practices.html
    But what you want sounds less like a blog network and more like a Wordpress Multi-user site. Just search for "install WPMU" and you should find what you are looking for

    Ok I think this is related to this topic so one more question. If you have multisite wp enabled, what is good to set as default domain - with www or without www?

    I know there is almost no difference, just if I use www it keeps redirecting me to signup and I know how to solve the issue, just... anyway really should I use www for wp network domain or should I simply make it without www?

    Thanks!

    I would make it without. That way you have myname.cooldomain.com rather than myname.http://www.cooldomain.com Not sure if this is what you mean exactly though.

    Well I though... I can't make up my mind. :)
    I ment: Is it better if you register blog for example: with www or without www infront your domain (it's really simple question).?

    And another thing.

    I really need some great advice what is better.
    Should I go for subdirectory or subdomain network? What is better? I want blackhat opinion, cos I'm sure here a lot of guys have some experiances.

    Cos for example wp is having that two options and both seems totally ok (dam*, why can't I use both :S), so if I would have some lets say blog about politics shi*'s, and I would want to write something about nature or whatever... Should I create mysite . com/nature or nature . mysite . com? Is there any significant difference or meybe rule what should I choose (subdomain or subdirectory)?
    I read many posts and everyone say that both options are cool, just I would really like to know which one is better, meybe also easy to operate and seo friendly.?
    I already have setted up subdomain . domain . com, just I don't know, I think domain . com /something would be better?. :/ ^^ need some good suggestions what to finally choose.
    Waiting on some good answers :)
    Thanks!
