How do you manage so many sites, with separate usernames/passwords for 23 admins, 1000+ authors & editors. They say “Less is more!” WordPress Multi-site is built to handle more data with less or zero hassels.

It’s ideal for people who need to setup large network of blogs/sites. WP Multi-site is a gem of a tool for managing newspapers, magazines, blog networks, universities and large companies running corporate blogging systems behind firewalls.
The classroom example
Consider getting 15 paintings done from a class. Would you give all the students just one big canvas with 15 boxes of equal dimension to paint at a time? Where each one has restricted space to paint, where they might spill color on each others space, and most importantly How can they think outside the box, If you are restricting them in a Box! No control, no creativity, & you end with an absolute mess.
A better Approach
Wouldn’t you prefer giving each student a smaller drawing board with multiple pages! It solves all your problems, they can paint at their own pace, there is no space restriction … and you have full control over what to Pin up on the canvas. This is exactly what WordPress Multi-site offers you, complete control and unlimited space to add, manage thousands of users, themes and plugins!
