Pointers to Setting up MU site for franchisees

I've set up my WPMU site and the way I'm envisaging ot working is a client signs up and gets their own domain area.maindomain.com which has some pre-installed plugins on it and the theme etc. One of the plugins must be a booking system for which their OWN clients may register as well. Any pointers as to best plugins for the different registrations, events etc

Thanks

John

    Hi there John (@ImportantlyMe)

    I hope you are well today.

    If you'd like some pre-defined plugins and a theme already set up etc, I'd recommend the use of our new blog templates plugin https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/new-blog-template/

    This will allow you to set up a site and use that site as a template by default for all newly created ones, so you can copy over WordPress settings, posts, pages, plugins, themes, Database tables etc. This means that your users can get a site that they can use straight away.

    I'm not aware of any booking plugins that work very well to be honest. We have our Appointments+ plugin, but that isn't actually a booking plugin and is designed for use for 1 to 1 appointments, which may or may not suit your users? https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/appointments-plus/

    With setting up events, you could try our events+ plugin here
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/events-plus/ That way you can allow the users to set up their own events etc, it works great with BuddyPress as well if you wanted the social networking features that provides :slight_smile:

    If you want to set up a custom registration form I'd use Gravity forms
    http://www.gravityforms.com/ that works great with Multisite, and you can have as many fields as you want, it's worth noting if your using that, the new blog template must be set as default, otherwise it would take custom coding, to get the selector to work with Gravity Forms.

    Thank you for being a WPMU DEV member!

    Kind Regards
    Jack.
