Multisite is often treated as one of the dark corners of WordPress and can be forgotten or managed poorly when developing public plugins or working on client projects.
Let’s pull back the curtain and shed some light.
We’ll cover the history of multisite from its early days as another b2 fork. We’ll walk through the structure and the load process to show how things really are straight forward. We’ll cover situations to be aware of and code to use when you are developing something for multisite.
And! We’ll cover the future of multisite and allow for some good Q&A, so bring your questions!

WordPress Multisite can be seen as the “Wizard of Oz” of WordPress: Pay no attention to the code behind the curtain. However, Jeremy Felt pulls back that curtain on Multisite at WordCamp Vancouver 2015 and gives you a “straight with no chaser” tour of WordPress Multisite. This WordCamp.tv video is an excellent primer for those unfamiliar with the code behind WordPress Multisite. Felt has an incredible level of knowledge on why certain parts of the WordPress core — the parts related to Multisite — are what they are and some of the legacy decisions that still impacts WordPress Multisite today!
