Create a blog for West Bengal Wikimedians User Group
Open, Stalled, LowestPublic

Description

The West Bengal Wikimedians User Group needs a blog space.

We don't manage a Wordpress multisite installation on the cluster, but use Wordpress VIP hosting service for blog.wikimedia.org

We need to investigate if this solution is also usable for user groups, or what kind of alternative could we suggest.

This request is a fork from T162510.


@Dereckson , Thank for your imitative, Now I can see and edit our User group website. Can it be possible a blog space with in that? as like blog.wb.wikimedia.org?

What do you mean by blog space? Can you link to similar chapter blog run by WMF so we can determine what do you mean exactly?

Sorry for the late reply. There are few chapter blogs like Wikimedia Finland blog or Wikimedia Denmark blog. But we do like to follow the style of WMF blog.

@gpaumier Would you know who manages the WordPress installation and could answer the following question: "is this possible on the current WordPress hosting to create blog subdomains for user groups" ?

I don't know, but @EdErhart-WMF probably does.

Thanks for pinging @gpaumier! It is not currently possible, nor am I aware of any plans to add that functionality. Our theme lives at https://github.com/wikimedia/wikimediablog-wordpresscom (see also https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T95129), if they'd like to replicate our look and feel.
