- WordPress Multisite ~ I installed WordPress Multisite in the sub.domain set up. Want to know why? Read on….
- Wildcard SSL ~ I could have very easily set up a /subfolder multisite. That would have required only a traditional simple SSL. But I wanted a challenge, (and some really insane proving ground for Network Shared Media) so this site is running on a Wildcard SSL!
- Child Theme ~ While it doesn’t really impact Network Shared Media too much, I did go ahead and use a Child Theme for this site
- CDN ~ Lightningbase.com comes with a built in CDN. I wanted to make sure to demonstrate the functionality of Network Shared Media with a Content Delivery Network. So, indeed, the CDN is active and running on this site.
- Varnish ~ Again, not much bearing on the functionality of the Network Shared Media plugin, but I just wanted to be upfront and clear that it works fine with varnish caching.
Got all that? Ok, here we go. In addition to the main site, I’ve got 4 multisites running. I made posts and pages using the images that are only located in the main site’s media library!
Below is a link to each of them. To fully verify and check the demos, here’s what to do:
- Open each, any, or all of these multisites.
- Once you get any of the multisites open, check out any of the posts and pages.
- Now, click any of the media ~ audio, video, or images.
- All the media will open with url showing it coming from the main site’s media library.
It works pretty dang nicely!
