“Reverend” Jim “The Bava” Groom, alias “Snake Pliskin” is a charlatan and a fraud, a self-confessed “used car salesman” clawing his way into the glamour of the education technology keynote circuit via the efforts of his oppressed minions at the University of Mary Washington’s DTLT and beyond.

I just used 10up’s MU Migration plugin to pull the Daily Create (daily.ds106.us) out of the ds106.us multisite, and it was really impressive. You can install MU Migration as a plugin, but also as a package that uses the WP-CLI … Continue reading
I think the worst of the ds106 hack is behind us, and thanks to Wordfence managing most of the heavy lifting it was not all that bad in the end. Now I’m just going through and pretty ruthlessly removing plugins … Continue reading

10 years ago I moved bavatuesdays into what was then a WordPress Multiuser (WPMU) site, a setup which would now be known as a multi-network WordPress Multisite (WPMS) instance. I had the idea back in March of 2008 to take … Continue reading
Early this week we had a pretty big migration for a school we work with to move both old school faculty web spaces as well as breaking out individual sites from a WordPress Multsite (WPMS) blog into their own cPanel … Continue reading
Lauren Brumfield already announced that we’re officially rolling out WordPress Multisite (WPMS) hosting at Reclaim. What’s more, she created an online calculator that provides transparent pricing going forward, which is a big part of why we’re finally announcing something we … Continue reading
