WordPress 3.0 Development: Tickets

  • Total Number of Tickets : 383 (as on 26’th Dec 2009)
  • Active Tickets : 348
  • Closed Tickets: 35
  • High Priority Tickets: 13
  • Normal Tickets: 328

One major upgrade which is expected to come in 3.0 is the merge of WordPress and WordPress MU. Which means you will be able to install multiple sites on your normal wordpress installation as part of expansion. Currently if you want to expand your reach by adding multiple sites on your normal wordpress installation, you will have to install a new copy of wordpress each time. But after the release of WordPress 3.0, that expansion will be much easier.

Since WordPress is an open source platform running by many developers out there, you may also put your request for new features in a thread opened by WordPress Team. Here is the link for the same,

    I really like WordPress MU but merging the two sounds like a great idea!

  • Call me a bit of a kill joy but I’m not to happy about the WordPress mu code merge. I’ve done a post at: WordPress 3.0 – What’s Troubling Me to tell what I see as issues.

  • its nice to have that MU feature in wp as we run many minisites and its a good thing to get at a shot 🙂
