WPMU: Setting up Permalinks

WPMU, by default, has a really ugly linking system for example look like this:

Now within WPMU Administration you can customize these links, which are created on the fly, fairly easily.

The obvious choice or solution would be to change said strucutre to this: %/postname%. This is a bad idea.
Reasoning is this, WPMU first checks the URL to see if it is a page before looking to see if it is a post. Therefore in my opinion the most efficient structure would be: %post_id%/%postname%

Remember you have to be an admin to perform this action. I strongly suggest this being done right after installation as changing the linking structure on an already successful blog could have catastrophic effects.

What are the Differences between WP and WPMU?

Recently I have received a few emails asking this question: "What are the Differences between WP and WPMU?"

So I have decided to provide you with Troy's version of the answer.

Previously, there were two different install, WP and WPMU, with the currently release WP 3.0 there is only one version; you just activate the version you want. My favorite part is that you do not have to immediately start with WPMU if you do not need/want to. You can adjust the settings at a later date, a wonderful feature.

WordPress 3.0 Adventure

There has been a good bit of discussion over the past 18 or so months on the WordPress Blogging software. I have personally have tried numerous times to create a riveting blog structure that would almost in essence act like a cms. Yes a daunting task I agree. The biggest questions was to use WP or use WP MU. WPMU gave more functionality, easier creation of multiple blog instances, not to mention the really nice plug-ins.

Unfortunately, I never could successfully make this happen, either lack of knowledge on my part or lack of time. Finally though, with WP 3.0 life is simple. With the new features that have been added, such as WPMU and regular WP are one install and not separate programs, to widgets and one of my favorites one button press upgrade for ALL of your MU blogs. There are numerous new items that have been added to this new realize that I want to highlight.
