    Hey there,

    Thanks for posting on the forums.

    What you want should need a lot of time or a lot of planning :slight_smile:

    I would suggest you to use

    WordPress Multisite so that you can use a single WordPress install for them all.

    If you want to restrict the plugins available to sites on different levels, you should use Pro Sites, if not, then you should not use it.

    If you want to replicate the content on different sites then you should look at : https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/new-blog-template/ as it will allow you to create templates which you can replicate on different sites and get a quick start site with some default content and a common theme with few plugins already configured as per the template site.

    If you want to create all sites in bulk, use https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/batch-create/

    Backups : https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/snapshot/ can handle it. However it does not allow you to backup the whole network at once, but backup should be set up on a per site basis.

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers, PC

    ok thanks @pc, in case i use prosites can i have administrator to manage each site? as each site will have his own autonomy, isn't a limitations by using prosites? sometime i can have specific plugin or specific action on some and not others.
    any way i want to know limitations of using prosites rather than site by site. as with time these sites will be manage( content) by assistants.
    I never used pro sites in the past, is there a ressource i can read to understand really how its works? also about hosing a prosites. sorry alot of fears in my mind.

    But the main thing is the core installation will be similar but with time others people will manage content. how prosites handle that?
    Thanks

    Hey there,

    Sorry for the delay as I had to be away from work for a few days due to some family emergency and could not get back to this any sooner.

    ok thanks, in case i use prosites can i have administrator to manage each site?

    Yes, you can.

    as each site will have his own autonomy, isn't a limitations by using prosites?

    Prosites will only control the themes and plugins available to a site, the number of posts they can make and the space they can use etc. So as an admin, if you want you can override something on any site.

    I never used pro sites in the past, is there a ressource i can read to understand really how its works? also about hosing a prosites. sorry alot of fears in my mind.

    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/pro-sites/#usage can provide better info on this.

    If you want to keep the 1000 sites as separate installs, you are easily looking at a lot of hours or work

    Cheers, PC
