Was excited to set up a multisite network, but... this has very quickly become a mind melting mess... permissions issues of every kind, even w/ super admin, plugin dashboard notes everywhere, the entire multisite process seems riddle w/ painful extra obstacles...
A single install w/ each site having own plugins / themes AND a shared user / DB seems like a much better / more sane solution.
Is that the best way to have multiple sites w/ single sign on?
What functionality is lost if I set up separate installs w/ shared DB?
Do your MU plugins work w/ single install shared DB?
