    How about a plugin control panel.

    Each plugin needs to be configured differently, permissions, settings.

    So what if you had a plugin that would remember your ID's, social bookmark names, aff codes etc. all in a config file. download it to desk top and then load up with each new install and or into the WP Mu folder.

    In a perfect world it would tell you which permissions needed changing.

    I building an Mu empire, my cheat sheet is ridiculous.

    Haha, the Mu empire? What is Mu? Anyways, that would be a nice idea I might go ahead and make something like that that controls all of your plugins automatically. You mean one that automatically configures a wordpress so it gets it all set up and changes all the settings for your plugins easily? Basically a time saving utility?

    Mu is Wordpress MultiUser Edition. It can install several full service blogs on one domain using either sub-directories or sub-domains. I imagine if you were clever you could use several top-level domains as well, though I'm not sure that is an "out of the box" feature.

    Yes, a time saving utility. Each plugin is a program, each programer added his/her creativity to it. So when configuring plugins some need permissions set, some like Mu plugins work out of the box, affiliate ones need my aff codes, that could be a lot. Don't bother putting adsense on the list, it will only get a blog banned.

    We would still need to do some blog level config to make each blog unique but some things like flic er lic# will not change.

    If you want to get fancy, have the option of multiple aff codes for each aff. The codes would randomly be assigned to the links.

    Hi Guys this is a GREAT thread and is heading up to another level... for what WP should be aimed at is this kind of ease of use when setting up an aff site. My question is this though what is the BEST way to secure WP? I have fiddled with the basics in the wpconfig.php but maybe need to strengthen the defenses a bit more.

    not sure if there is a plugin for this, but one that can import rss feeds or plr content and rewrite as well as validate that the newly produced content passes copyscape

    There was a guy over at DP who created this for $10 bucks, but it doesn't work well and now they're all fighting over how well it does or does not work. I say, it's about 45% effective on copyscape. If you want it, PM me and I'll send it to you. If somebody can do it better, that would be great.

    Hmm, that sounds interesting I'll play around with that for a bit. So there is no software that will do this on top-level domains yet?
