Manage Multiple WordPress Blog From One Control Panel

written by John Chow on September 13, 2007

The Ultimate Online Profit Model

Karol Krizka, the Techie Buzz author who created the Better Comment Manager WordPress plugin has released his newest creation, Manage Multiple Blogs. The new WordPress plugin allows you to manage a bunch of WordPress blogs from one WordPress control panel.

After lots of work in fact more than 3500 lines of code later I am finally glad to announce the beta release of Manage Multiple Blogs. This plugin allows you to manage your external blogs from a single central blog. Yes now you don’t need to logon to multiple blogs if you want to write a post, edit a post, manage categories and yes manage your comments including approving, disapproving, spamming it, replying to it, threaded reply and more.

The beta plugin offers most of the functions you would find in your normal WordPress control panel. There are few things it currently cannot do, like uploading an image or adding a category while writing a post. There is also no automatic draft saves. Manage Multiple Blogs should be beneficial to bloggers who write more than one blog or regularly guest blog for other blogs.

There are two versions of the plugin, Manage Multiple Blogs and Manage Multiple Blogs RPC. The RPC version allows you to manage comments across multiple blogs.

vangardx September 13, 2007 at 7:54 am

Wahlau.NET September 13, 2007 at 8:02 pm

this is actually very useful…is it like Anyone tried it?

Googlelady September 16, 2007 at 6:47 pm

I have to test it out and see how much resources takes, and I am afraid also about the bugs on it.

Poker Sharks September 13, 2007 at 7:07 am

Sounds like a bit of a ball ache for the sake of not wanting to login to a seperate login page.

Approving comments all in one go for multiple blogs could be handy though.

tory September 13, 2007 at 7:10 am

John, you could use this for that secret blog you’ve started!

CatherineL September 13, 2007 at 11:06 am

Which secret blog?

Chris Jacobson September 13, 2007 at 7:16 am

Neat plugin. I’ll have to give this a try.

Million Dollar Journey September 13, 2007 at 7:21 am

Sounds like a lot of work, great job! Perhaps you should consider charging a fee for the plugin.

WarriorBlog September 13, 2007 at 8:09 am

That isn’t a bad idea :cool:

Rob September 13, 2007 at 8:37 am

maybe quiet a few people will be willing to pay for it

Ebay_Tips September 13, 2007 at 7:25 am

I’m equally excited and terrified to install this plugin. It’s on the “to do ” list.

Free Blog Help September 14, 2007 at 7:02 pm

I’m terrified too. I would assume it’s stable, but I’m going to wait for some reports before I do anything *crazy*.


Shaun Connell September 13, 2007 at 7:41 am

Wow, nice — I’ll have to check that out. I have four blogs. :)

Bill September 13, 2007 at 6:24 pm

Why only four?

The Writers Manifesto September 13, 2007 at 7:49 am

Hi John,
Funny as i just saw this plugin mentioned yesterday. I think it is great for me as I manage 4 blogs. Thanks for reminding me again. I’ll download it right away.

Monika :razz:

WarriorBlog September 13, 2007 at 8:08 am

I don’t know too many that have multiple blog and if so, why would you want to anyway? :shock:
Having lots of blog is a fantasttic way to lose motivation and get bogged down :wink:

Scooot September 13, 2007 at 9:23 am

I have three, but I have to agree it is more than I can or want to handle. Right now though I am trying to find the right platform and then probably drop the others.

Free Blog Help September 14, 2007 at 7:03 pm

I think that is what many of us do. I have three, but one of them I’m just not passionate about. My two others receive updates 5-7 times per week each.


Karol Krizka September 13, 2007 at 8:22 am

Um, you got the wrong author…

Keith Dsouza September 13, 2007 at 8:44 am

Yups and the better kontera plugin is not created by me :razz: its better comments manager

Rob September 13, 2007 at 8:34 am

ohhh, this is a plug-in i was waiting for! Hope full functionality will be add soon.

Stephan Miller September 13, 2007 at 8:45 am

What benefits would this have compared to say ScribeFire? It’s what I use for about 5 blogs. It adds tags for both technorati and delicious and allows you to add categories on the fly. Plus its a Firefox plugin. I can use it aanywhere and no one’s the wiser.

tim September 13, 2007 at 8:55 am

Yep, I’ve had a good look at this aswell – helpful tool

Tere September 13, 2007 at 9:00 am

:grin: cool WP plugin. got to try this on my 3 blogs. :)

Stefanie September 13, 2007 at 9:17 am

You have a spelling error in your personalize bidvertiser ad. Thought you might want to fix it!

Etienne Teo September 13, 2007 at 9:28 am

Another great plugin that is meant for WP users!

Make Money Blogging September 13, 2007 at 9:31 am

I have been becoming fond of windows writer for multiple post. However, you still have to log in afterwards to adjust the SEO tags.

SEO Optimization September 13, 2007 at 9:39 am

Ok now this can be a really useful plugin for those that do have a network of blogs.

Hotmoneytips September 13, 2007 at 9:44 am

This is the kind of plugin I can use but I’ll wait until the “bugs” are worked out…

MyBlogCotest September 13, 2007 at 10:05 am

This plugin sounds great!! I have many blogs so this plugin is really useful!

Aditya September 13, 2007 at 10:13 am

Damnnnnnnnnnnnn I was waiting for this. I never knew that something like this exists. Its going to help me to run my new blog network better.

Eugene September 13, 2007 at 10:16 am

just what i have been looking for! :) thanks

thewild1 September 13, 2007 at 10:36 am

i always have problems using word press because customize a template is too complicated

Jason C. September 13, 2007 at 10:42 am

No thanks, not gonna risk it. I don’t need an additional 3,500 potencial problems. :roll:

CatherineL September 13, 2007 at 11:17 am

It sounds great for multiple blogs. I only have 2 though.

Webmaster Money September 13, 2007 at 11:56 am

This sounds realy good. I dont have real blogs but I would liek to manage my site from 1 place only.

Website Design September 13, 2007 at 12:02 pm

Pretty slick :)

Word Hugger September 13, 2007 at 12:19 pm

Very nice for blog webmasters.

50 Cents Vs Kanye West September 13, 2007 at 1:24 pm

This plugin is great news for newbies like me who dislike digging into codes.

Scooot September 13, 2007 at 3:11 pm

[...] John Chow over at: made over 17K dollors last month, and his site is set up to teach you to do the same. [...]

Today Is Not Over Yet September 13, 2007 at 4:27 pm

I use scribfire, but this plugin seems useful

YC September 13, 2007 at 8:13 pm

And if you’re not on WP yet, why not try it today? :grin:

Click Input September 13, 2007 at 10:31 pm

Sounds good for lazy people or spammers.

Making The Money September 14, 2007 at 2:12 am

How do people find the time to keep more than 1 blog up to date? I’m flat out on mine as it is!

Rahul September 14, 2007 at 4:23 am

Yeah.. nice useful plugin for lazy bloggers.. hehe :P

High Return Investing with Dax September 14, 2007 at 11:11 am

That’s great. Another social site I like being myspace’d. If they start having horrible “templates” like Myspace with music that autoplays I’ll have to leave it. It is my current “clean” social site that I go to. No spamming as of yet.

SpeedyVista September 14, 2007 at 2:40 pm

“Manage Multiple Blogs should be beneficial to bloggers who write more than one blog or regularly guest blog for other blogs”

Or for managing your splog empire. Well.. all of those are completely automated, but its a nice thought


Shaun Connell September 15, 2007 at 6:13 am

By the way, how many people have more than one blog?
