I’ve been working on this e-book for a long time, and finally decided to just release it already. Aggregating global Content will show you how to set up the home page and some other pages on the main site in your WordPress network. It goes over how to install and set up the sitewide tags plugin, and there’s also some handy extra widgets included.
This ebook is really affordable and a great first step for anyone new to the multisite feature and setting up their own network. Read the sales page for more details.
