Session Description:
In 2010, John Carroll University began rolling out WordPress as its content management, the first the school had ever used. They picked WordPress due to its user-friendly interface and powerful customization abilities. The site has grown beyond our wildest imagination, and now over 300 sites are hosted in a large Multisite network. Needless to say, Mike has walked the walk…

This talk will, um, talk the talk about how to successfully manage an extremely large WordPress Multisite installation. From hardware to themes to plugins, Mike will share his tips and tricks to be able to not only support a large user community, but get the best performance possible, all while avoiding common gotchas and pitfalls.

This session brought to you in partnership with the HighEdWeb Association.
