Creating an Etsy-Style Network With WordPress Multisite
Calling all Multisite gurus. Today’s installment of the WordPress Q & A Sessions should be right up your alley.
A reader named Brian has submitted the following question to us:
I want to use WordPress Multisite to create something similar to Etsy and Artfire. How would I completely hide all WordPress admin options in the dashboard (for subdomain sites), and create a custom admin page that limits each store owner to just a few basic storefront customization options?
This is a question that we’ve heard from several multisite users over at the WPMU DEV forums. Have you attempted something like this yourself?
If you can throw any suggestions Brian’s way, with regards to modifying the dashboard in Multisite, he would sure love to hear them. Please add a comment after this article and let us know what you think.
And if you’ve got a WordPress question of your own that you’ve been dying to ask – Send it to us! If it’s worthy of publishing on the blog, you’ll score yourself a three month membership at WPMU DEV.
By the way, anyone who wants to create an eCommerce store with WordPress Multisite should definitely take a look at the MarketPress plugin.
