Welcome to Week 3 of WPMS 101 with Tom Woodward! Last week Tom and Taylor covered WPMS strategy when it comes to setup, maintenance, and creating community. This week Pilot joins Tom to talk through the tech behind Multisite. Good news: you don’t have to be a WordPress engineer to run a successful Multisite! Tom breaks down the tech this week in a way that even us mere mortals can digest.
Week 3 Q&A
We will have a Q&A session on Friday at 12pm ET in the #wordpress-multisite-101 channel and our #hangout-voice channel in Discord. We’ll answer any lingering questions you might have from the session 3 video, and answer any other WPMS-related questions you bring to the discussion!

☑️ For next week
If you’re following along with our dev WPMS activity we suggested in the checklist from week one’s blog post, we have some more tasks for you to try out before Week 4.
Make a demo site, activate some plugins and turn on a theme.
Delete the theme activated at the site level via Network Admin.
Use PHP MyAdmin to remove all of the plugins you activated at the site level.
Try changing the name of the site via PHP MyAdmin.
Turn on error logging in the wp-config.php file.
Tom wrote a tiny plugin for you to install that will write something to your error log so you can make sure it works. Just turn it on and it’ll write to the log!
Pssssssst, you can click those checkboxes above, and your browser's cache will remember what was checked when you return!
