The MU forums are moving

The MU forums will shortly be closing up shop.

WordPress 3.0 integrated everything that MU always did so it’s better to consolidate the forums too. There’s a MultiSite forum on and any queries about upgrading or problems using WordPress 3.0 should go there.

The old forums aren’t going anywhere but later today or perhaps tomorrow I’ll be making them read-only. You’ll still be able to browse the forum, and Google will still index the wealth of information already there but posting will be disabled.

So, thank you to everyone who contributed to the forum over the years. You helped make WordPress MU great.

  1. Thanks for everything you’ve done over the years to keep MU going!!!

    And thanks to everyone else also. 🙂

  2. Wow what a year. First the merge, then closing the IRC channel, now the forums. All good things, but still kind of crazy to think about.

    Thanks to everyone that was involved in making MU epic. 😀

  3. I will miss the mu forums and site. still don’t get the idea of merging both scripts, since 97% of people are only going to use single wordpress anyways.

  4. Thank you for MU so far (I hope you aren’t leaving WP development?)

    Alex: Now there will hopefully be more developers on the multi-site features and that will be good for us end users I guess.
    No more delayed MU-releases either ^^

  5. Thank *you* Donncha for being such a big part of making WPMU great.

    And thanks to all forum guru Andrea (you ROCK!) and regulars who invested a lot of time and effort into this community, and who I hope will continue doing so in the Multisite forum as well.

  6. You’ve done such a wonderful job with MU, kudos and thanks for all the hard work! I hope this is not the end for your involvement with WP.

    It’s always sad to see a great website of forum go, but in this case it’s a good thing too, given that so many more people will get interested in using MU features thanks to the merge.
