* Content Management System (CMS) is a computer program that allows publishing, editing and modifying content on a website as well as maintenance from a central interface. Such systems provide procedures to manage workflow in a collaborative environment.

Coding Style Format

01) Multisite

The multi-user (MU) feature has been rolled into core as Multisite ever since version WordPress 3.0.

It is ideal for a central system administrator to set up a large network of blogs with one installation. The sites in this network have different URLs.

Individual, separate site administrators are able to securely manage their templates and settings without affecting the other users.

02) Installation

16 files, three directory folders

add one line to wp-config.php

define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );

login again – follow instructions



Note: Install WordPress in the root of your webpath if you want to use a sub-domain install. A sub-directory install creates a path-based network, even though it does not use file system directories.

add six more lines to wp-config.php

create the hidden .htaccess file containing the rewrite code

07) Registration


Allow new registrations

  • Registration is disabled – all usernames and sites must be created by the Super Administrator.
  • User accounts may be registered using your signup page but sites need to be created by the Super Administrator.
  • Logged in users may register new sites.
  • Both sites and user accounts can be registered.

Add New Users

  • By default, Site Administrators cannot add new users to sites via the “Users > Add New” page.
