A WordPress Network / Multisite
A muliti-sector international business and manufacturing support services provider with multiple websites and brands. They recently worked with one of our design partners, Haime & Butler, to unify their branding and consolidate their web presence.
The first phase of Didgeroo involvement in this project was to work with Haime & Butler in building a responsive prototype . We iterated this prototype many times until layouts were signed off with the end client.
For the the next phase Haime & Butler completed the design visuals while Didgeroo worked on building a universal WordPress theme for use with all websites operated by the parent company.
Finally, the a WordPress Network (formerly know as WordPress Multisite) was built and, the universal theme loaded, and content populated for all sites, all via a single WordPress Dashboard.
WordPress Network is a very powerful but little used or understood feature. It allows multiple websites (domains) to use a single WordPress install, shared files and database. Some advantages to this approach include
- Easier to managed mulitple sites via a single login and dashboard
- Possible to share posts between sites
- Only one wordpress install (and plugins) to update and maintain
- Bug fixes and new features can be rolled out to all sites simultaneously
