There exist plugins which are designed for mass blog management and upgrading, a few web sites offer a central control panel over blogs and automate upgrades/etc too.

Due to the fact that such an API would require substantial client work for it as well, This feels like it's be better functionality to be left for plugins to implement for specific purposes.

Okay, i only found one plugin / commercial site. But that is commercial, so unsuitable :-/ also i didn't like the quality from such plugins, they are often security-disasters. also (if i be right) it is not possible to extend the XMLRPC api to add something like this.

Just because the ones out there are unsuitable for your uses, doesn't make it suitable for core material. It'd be possible to extend XMLRPC to achieve it, it'd be possible to extend anything to do it.

I've seen the functionality in at least 3 different commercial services, all done in different ways which target their use cases/niches. My opinion either way is, at this point in time, It's not something that core could consider supporting, and would be better left to a plugin.

Also, For those hosting a large number of WordPress sites, WordPress Multisite is designed for that, sure, it comes with it's complete own set of rules and limitations, but it's a viable option for a lot of installations.

i would use multisite, but the CEO of my company would chop my head from my shoulders because of the SEO-technical deficits, also our customer want their wordpress's on their own servers. :-/ at least, it is only a request, not more. Seems like i must search for such plugins and analyse them till i find out what they do. (Magic, for sure)

  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing for now, at this stage, it's more for plugin territory.
