The recent annoucnement and sharing of the various extensions and code that enables user integration between WPMu and MediaWiki, I have once again returned to the idea of make the UMW Blogs Wiki a MediaWiki farm.

UMW Blogs Upgraded to WPMu 2.7.1

“Nothing to see here, folks, nothing to see. Move along now….move along.”
We waited until the end of the semester for the UMW Blogs upgrade to 2.7.1 and I have to say going from version 2.6.5 to 2.7.1 was the easiest yet. I was a bit concerned given this was our first upgrade with the multi-database […] Continue reading
