    I know that it already been brought up in many different forums about this. I read some comments which it confused me a bit. I guess this place is a best place to get the straight answer. WordPress.com is planning to move forward on MU platform however it ll be merging the code with WPMU/WP to be able to run Buddypress. There are different comments made it clear that we still have WPMU for self-hosted platform not merging with WP.

    Andy commented on this issue that it will be merged but does that applies on self hosted installation or it will be a single codebase for self hosted platform, right? Time is approaching for v3.0 by 2010 if v2.9 is going to be released soon. Injersey.com created a large project under WPMU platform and many others so I should go ahead to switch over to WPMU/BP right now or still better off to WAIT but WHEN? That’s my dilemma to wait or not.

    The WPMU and WP code will be merged at some point, maybe for version 3.0. For the user it’ll probably be hardly noticable. It’ll be another option you can turn on or off in the backend, so there’s no reason to wait. You want to start a project now, then do it.

    There really isn’t any dilemma :)

    My unofficial response is that there’s very little if anything to worry about. If you’re already using MU of any form, then the move will be 100% transparent to you when it happens. If you’re using traditional .org (which I’m going to start calling SU for single user) then the upgrade will be 99% transparent and 1% “oh, cool.” :)

    I’d recommend SB and MB for Single blog and Multi blog. Like Andrea said, it has always kind of been irksome that it was called WordPress Multi User when it really allowed multiple blogs.

    Yep. :) Single WP could have multiple users all along.

    To answer the OP, if you want to start building on WPMU now, go right ahead. You won’t need to re-do anything after the merge. The hope is the upgrade will be quite smooth. You’ll just be upgrading to the “regualr” WP codebase, but your multiple blogs are alreayd turned on in wp-config.

    If anything, it’s single WP going away. :D

    Thanks! It made my day :) I was told to wait two months ago. I appreciated your time to answer this.
