Curious, do authors create a separate install for each theme or use Multisite?

Pros/Cons of each?

I use!

Pros:

- better management
- not having multiple WordPress installations

Cons:

- a bit harder on local > server deployment, but if you know your way around sql, then it’s not that hard

So when a new WordPress update comes out you like updating 10 sites individually instead of only one? :)

It’s a double-edged sword, right? :) Say you’ve got a plugin installed that isn’t yet compatible with the latest version of WordPress, and you’re waiting on the author, it’ll hold up updating all your sites instead of just the 1.

Anyway, 10 month old thread revived by a spammer…

Shared Users One of the frustrations that comes with creating multiple WordPress installs is creating duplicate users across each site.

Multisite makes this easy by managing a centralized set of users with permission to each site that they need access to.

Upgrade Once And of course, one of the major benefits of running a single WordPress install across all of your blogs is that you only need to upgrade WordPress once
