    Question Simple Multi-site question

    Why do people insist on using multi-site versus installing another copy of wordpress in a different directory? That just seems so much easier to me....

    Some may just want to have single admin to manage the sites. I prefer installing wordpress too than a multi-site since you can isolate the problem easily when there is something wrong with the sites or the security is breached. Once the multi-site is attacked all your sites will be down too.
    Please help our moderating team work more efficiently by not sending us support questions via PM. You can read more about how AppThemes support works here. However, you can send a PM to follow up and remind me if I missed your support request/thread.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

    I never even thought of that either. I am not trying to bash multi-site, I just plan on doing another wp on my site and it just seemed like so much work to coordinate....

    Well, also with multi site there is the easier ability to share data across sites should you wish. Perhaps it depends more on your sites. Eg: dogs4sale.com, cats4sale.com, birds4sale.com and rabbitts4sale.com might make a smart multi site decision for cross promotion, sharing user logins etc. whereby dogs4sale.com, hotrodcars.com and vacationinmadrid.com might not.

    Just a thought!
