Now that I’m working at Automattic, I have this novel thing called free time that I plan to partially use to release a few plugins I’ve had on the backburner for a while.
First up is Move to Subsite. I’ve come across lots of WP sites that initially used categories and/or pages to organize a large site into what amounts to a series of subsites. This approach doesn’t scale, particularly once your organization grows to the point where you want certain people to only have posting rights for that pseudo-subsite.
This is exactly the scenario I ran into when developing the Salvation Army Canada site: each regional territory had a category with a page that pulled in categorized content. My plugin made short work of that: now each division—like the Prairies, for instance—has its own subsite on a network install. Neat and tidy.
