@Jay Collier - Bates. Was that ubermenu custom styled? I had a lot of problems via firebug styling mine. Any suggestions? I also noted in your source code that the WP version was visible. The security guy at the WordCamp Boston (where I attended your presentation) said this was a security issue. FYI, I use Secure Wordpress, Wordpress Firewall 2, and WP Securty Scan. Any other suggestions? thx - Steve

What kind of a browser environment do most of you use?

We have IE7 on XP, IE 8 on Windows 7 for the masses. IT will install specific browers only for certain user groups.

Hi all,

Has anyone come up with a workable solution to deal with WPMU creating dns on the fly? That is, WPMU uses a wildcard to assign a dns...I've been told that creates a security issue. I'm not a sys admin or programmer, so my apologies if I'm not being clear.

We're a small school, and don't have the resources to have employees manually monitor dns requests.

Has anyone found an alternative?

Thanks,
Eric

Has anyone used a photo gallery plugin successfully with WPMU? We just upgraded to 2.9.1 in advance of rolling this out as a pilot CMS.

Notes from discussion:

limitations with authors being able to respond to other authors in a multi author blog
-series plug-in a solution?

time issues for graduating students
-great press

hosted solution like edublogs good for trialing a mu install

plug-ins
cross-reference plug-in for internal links via shortcodes

rb internal links - search capability and short code

contact form 7 - breaks 2.8.4a

page mash for navigating through pages/posts

searching for keywords and facet search suggested search

Hi Ed, I don't think this is the place to discuss this but I had the exact same troubles in 2.7 and it was fixed in 2.8. Obviously you need to 777 the folder, but also make sure the 2.8 update updated all the files and make sure you don't have a slash at the end of the path in your settings!

Does it make any difference if I host it in a secure (https) portion of the server? That's where it is.

Should we migrate to https?

I recently got a notice from Google that in October 2017 Chrome V62 with show the warning "NOT SECURE" on all our web pages we have a input field for search. Since on most of our pages there is nothing that would require secure information I've never felt the need for HTTPS. Our class registration pages are secure but not the general information pages. The warning is going to scare people though. Are others upgrading their websites?See More
