We set up an installation of Wordpress Multi-User (although I believe the multi-user functionality has been wrapped into the latest release of Wordpress) and tied it in to our users (in Open Directory, maybe?) using an LDAP plugin. Initial set up took a little work figuring out permissions and finding an LDAP plugin that worked with our setup but it works. A blog is created automatically for a user the first time that user logs into the system; there are plugins that allow you to specify the settings (default theme, etc.) for each new blog created. So yes, it's possible. :-) Christopher Ozias ------------------------- English Teacher Pinckney New Tech High, Pinckney Community Schools email@example.com > X-From: Kristen Walker <firstname.lastname@example.org> > > We are looking into a way we could deploy a Wordpress site for every > teacher in our county.
