The Lyceum Project: Another multi-blog WordPress implementation

This is quite interesting — the ibiblio folks have announced The Lyceum Project. This is a multi-blog version of WordPress, but it is a different implementation from WordPress MU (which is the basis of wordpress.com). I was curious about what Lyceum was doing differently from WPMU, and that is addressed in their FAQ.

And of course, since it’s based on WordPress, it is also GPLed, which means that the source is freely available. Their bug tracker seems pretty active, which is good. We can surely hope to see some of their enhancements make their way into the main WP core eventually.

    Documentation is a little scarce for it, but I managed to get it up and running, and I must say it is pretty slick. Thanks for sharing this with us; I never would have known about it otherwise. :)

    Lyceum definitely looks intersting. Multiple weblogs is the one feature that Movable Type has that keeps me looking back. WordPress pages have worked so far but if this pans out it will be very good. I’ll run a local copy and see how it goes. My one concern with a fork is losing the large and helpful WP community support.
