This is a bug that will track the migration of Mozilla Nepal to our new WordPress Multisite installation. We are doing this to ensure security and consistency across all Community IT-hosted websites.

The cooperation of the maintainer of this WordPress site will be crucial in getting this done. I have requested information from the person who appears to be most involved, but please let us know if there is someone else who controls it.

As part of this process, we will need to know what plugins are necessary, as we will have to reinstall them as part of the transition. Some may be incompatible, so flexibility will be required in some cases.

As for first steps, can we first get an OK from the current maintainer of the WordPress site for the eventual transfer to our WordPress Multisite installation?

I like the idea.
Currently the landing page is static but our blog, http://blog.mozilla-nepal.org, is in wordpress.

Adding Avinash Kundaliya, the current sysadmin, for his views.
@Avinash, can you manage some time for it? Else, I can work on it if you are busy.

@avash thanks for looping me in, I like the idea too.
@logan I like the idea but have a couple of doubts
1) migrate the whole mozilla-nepal site or just the blog ? I'd prefer to just migrate the blog.
2) what are the restrictions/issues that would come if we move to the multisite ? if any.

Just the blog.

There shouldn't be any major restrictions/issues. The only hassle might be finding Multisite-compatible plugins that are equivalent to the ones you are using now. Speaking of, can we please get a list of plugins that you're running right now on the blog?
Flags: needinfo?(debloper) → needinfo?(avinash)
The plugins we are using are:
Akismet
Delete Pending Comments (To delete spam comments if they make through Akismet, was useful at a time but not now)
WordPress Font Uploader Free (To upload Metabold fonts for Mozilla)
Wordpress Hit Counter
Akismet: http://wordpress.org/plugins/akismet/ forums indicate some support for MU (can set separate keys for each blog, can't set a global one) (✓)
Delete Pending Comments: http://wordpress.org/plugins/delete-pending-comments/ unnecessary, as per above
WordPress Font Uploader Free: http://wordpress.org/plugins/font-uploader/ MU support appears to be iffy, but we can either find an alternative or upload directly to the server (or CDN when we switch to that)
WordPress Hit Counter: http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-hit-counter/ doesn't appear to support MU, but you can use Google Analytics through an MU-compatible plugin to track your visitors

Moving over to new Community IT components.

WordPress Multisite is no longer a solution we are considering. We are looking at other ways to move our WordPress sites on shared hosting and VPSes. Closing this accordingly.
