I have been reading the Codex for Wordpress multisite, and it seems like what it is saying is that no site on the network can have the same name.
"If you try to create a static page in the first site with the name of another existing site on the network, the page's permalink will get a suffix (e.g. domain.com/PAGENAME-2). If you create a new site with the slug of an existing static page, the static page will not be reachable anymore."
I don't like this at all, considering that I will have a lot of clients that will probably have similar page names or names that are exactly the same ... there's really no avoiding this.
Is there a way to remedy this somewhat large and irritating problem?
