Yes. Our entire platform is fully compatible with WordPress Multisite. To configure it, you will have to follow the steps below:
Deactivate all your plugins
WordPress advises you to deactivate all active plugins running on your site before activating Multisite. Once the installation is finished, you can reactivate your plugins.
If this is a new WordPress installation, you probably don’t have any plugins installed, let alone activated. However, if you are using an existing site, you can deactivate your plugins en bloc.
To do this, go to Plugins > Plugins installed in your WordPress dashboard. Check the box to select all plugins, then in the Batch Actions drop-down menu, click Deactivate and Apply:
Update your file “wp-config.php”.
The next step is to update your WordPress files to enable the WordPress Multisite feature. There are several ways to do this. One option is to use an FTP client such as FileZilla and another is through the administration panel of the domain server in question by accessing the File Manager in the Web Files section.
Regardless of whether you use FTP or a file manager, the next step is to go to the root directory of your WordPress and locate the wp-config.php file, once you have located it, edit it and add the following line of code before the part that says “That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */”
/* Multisite */ define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );
When you are done, save the changes to the file.
Installing Multisite in WordPress
Now, you can log back into your WordPress administration panel. Go to Tools and select the Network Settings option:
You will need to create a name for your network and assign super administrator rights to someone (if not yourself). Be sure to include your email address here.
Note that if your WordPress installation was new, you would not see the subdomain installation warning. It is there to tell us that we cannot use subdirectories. However, if your site is new, you will be given the configuration option of your choice:
- With subdomains it would look like this: https://nuevaweb.tuweb.com/
- With subfolders like this: https://tuweb.com/nuevaweb
Enable the network
Now it is time to enable the Multisite network. On the next screen, you will see two code snippets. One is the code you must add to your wp-config.php file:
And the other one contains the code that you must add to your .htaccess file:
And that’s it, refresh the screen, login to your WordPress and you will have the Multisite configured.
