RVblogz was first created as a testing ground for the Tripawds Blogs community.
While we do have a growing number of RVers sharing their adventures with free travel blogs here, it is Jerry’s three legged dog blog network – with more than 2200 members and 550+ blogs – that has become one of the premiere WordPress Multisite networks.
In fact, Tripawds was recently added to the acclaimed WPMU Dev Showcase among some of the leading WordPress MultiSite communities online!
Best WordPress Multisite Plugins & Themes
So what exactly makes these network work? Simply said, it’s our WPMU Dev Premium subscription that enables us to offer such amazing functionality. Here’s a rundown of just a few of our favorite WPMU Dev plugins and themes that power RVblogz and the Tripawds community.
Admin Ads: We provide a row of dashboard “Quick Links” to many of our community’s most valuable resources using this simple plugin. It also allows us to notify bloggers of pending upgrades and other special announcements.
Anti-Splog: This ultimate spam blog plugin and service stops nearly all splogs from even being created in our WordPress Multisite network. If a splog does get created, no posts are visible to the community, and an easy interface allows us to moderate or delete them.
Avatars: Ths is how we allows users to upload ‘user avatars’ and ‘blog avatars’ which then appear in blog comments and blog / user listings throughout the network.
Invite: Allows all RVbloggerz to invite their friends and colleagues via email to check out their blog and register for an account.
Recent Comments: This widget lets us display a list of recent comments from all blogs throughout the community.
Sitemaps and SEO: Automatically generates and submit Google sitemaps for all blogs on this network
Supporter: Lets us easily offer paid RVblogz Supporter accounts with automatic upgrades including premium themes, premium plugins, extra storage space, the ability to instantly remove banner ads and more.
Terms Of Service: This plugin places the Terms of Service on the signup with an approval checkbox users must select in order to continue their registration.
The WordPress Popup Plugin: Allows us to display a simple ad directing new tripawds.com visitors to the valuable information in our first e-book, Three Legs and a Spare – a Canine Amputation Handbook.
Update Notifications: This keeps us automatically updated of any WPMU Dev plugin and theme updates for best security and functionality!
WPMU Nelo: The custom homepage CMS WordPress theme we customized to improve navigation and address site performance issues.
I often turn to the WPMU Dev support forums for quick answers whenever I need help tweaking things behind the scenes here. I have requested development of a couple things that might help us continue enhancing the Tripawds experience. For instance, I’d like to have a Map plugin that would automatically generate a map page with member locations based on profile data.
With all this that we already offer in mind, what other new features might Tripawds members like to see?
