Setting up WordPressMultiSite

All of the multisite setup instructions I could find assumed that either you were only going to use sub-domains or they assumed you were installing as the main domain and would allow others to create sites using different domains. One option not covered by the instructions is how to set up not as the main domain and to be able to define other domains yourself without the need for anyone else to be able to define the domains or sub-domains. It turns out that this is very easy to do even though the instructions appear to suggest it is impossible.

WPTouch and WordFence

A combination of WPTouch, WordFence and WP_Cache plugins on your WordPress blog gets WordFence totally confused when you update WPTouch. A misleading error message is produced telling you that WPTouch is disabled but the instructions on what to do about it are completely misleading. For some reason you have to enable and then disable caching in WordFence to clear the message.

For more detailed instructions and information about clashes with other caching modules see WPTouch and WordFence

bbPress Broken Roles

If you have a bbPress forum fully integrated into your WordPress site then for the most part the new users will be able to use the same role for interacting with both the blog and the forum. There are a few exceptions though particularly where the roles for the two are different. It is quite easy when you apply security to WordPress for the bbPress role for your administrator login to be lost. Here’s how to find the option within bbPress to fix this.
