Choosing Which Plugins to focus on 1st, 2nd, etc

I've learned that if you are going to use the multi database plugin, you should have this set up first.

Are there any other plugins, that IF you are going to use them, they should be set up early?

How about Pro Site?

Any others?

    Hi @Director98248

    Pro-sites yes, new blog templates, membership.

    Though it's not necessarily essential. You can install multi-db at any time really, but could be easier to setup before you create your site, multi-db is a complex plugin to setup, and when something goes wrong, then it usually really goes wrong. But try to determine first, if you really actually need the plugin, because you will not get any benefit from it with just a few hundred sites, however if you're expecting to have thousands of sites, then go ahead for sure.

    My best advice would be to set up a development site first on a different host or domain. Then go through the process and test things out. It's worth reading the multi-db instructions several times, and practising with it 1st on a development server, will most likely save you heartache later on when you come to build your live production site.

    Hope this helps
