Multisite Enhancements


When you work quite a bit with WordPress Multisites, sometimes you need more information or menu items. This plugin enhances the network area for super admins with useful functions.

  • Adds Blog and User ID in network view more
  • Enables an ‘Add New’ link under the Plugins menu for Network admins
  • Adds several useful items to the multisite ‘Network Admin’ admin bar
  • On the network plugins page, show which site has this plugin active
  • On the network theme page, show which blog has the theme active and which is a Child theme
  • Change Admin footer text for Administrators to view currently used RAM, SQL, RAM versions fast
  • Adds Favicon from the theme folder to the admin area to easily identify the blog. Use the favicon.ico file in the theme folder of the active theme in each blog
  • Adds Favicon to each blog on the Admin Bar Item ‘My Sites’. If you like a custom path for each favicon, please see the documentation for this feature.
  • Removes also the ‘W’ logo and his sub-links in the admin bar
  • Adds the status to each site in the admin bar to identify fastly if the site has a noindex status and to see the external url.
  • Handy SSL identifier for each site on the network site view page.
  • See the last login of users.
  • Add functions to be used in your install

    • The function get_blog_list() is currently deprecated in the WP Core, but currently usable. The plugin checks this and gets an alternative in inc/autoload/core.php
    • If you will develop the alternative to this function from my source, then use the method get_blog_list() in class Multisite_Core. My source also uses caching with the Transient API. More about the function in inc/autoload/class-core.php.
    • If you use WordPress version 3.7 and higher, then check the function wp_get_sites(), the new alternative function inside the core to get all sides inside the network. The function accepts a array with arguments, see the description.
    • But if you use WordPress 4.6 and higher then that new alternative 😉 – get_sites() – is the current function to get all sites in the network. The helper method of this plugin Multisite_Core::get_blog_list() or the function get_blog_list() have all checks included.
  • Filter the theme list to find your target quickly. This works on a single theme page and also on a network theme page.

I have used this plugin for years. It’s such a great time-saver and one of the very first plugins I add to any multisite. I fail to understand how there can be so few active users given how well the plugin works! If you are running a multisite, install it immediately and thank me later!

Endlich ein Update! Ich hatte mich schon umgesehen, ob es ein vergleichbares Plugin gibt, habe aber keins gefunden.

Thanks so much for the great plugin. Been using it flawlessly for years. Was wondering if any updates were coming up, i’m getting an error message when logged in as an admin: Warning: Trying to access array offset on value of type bool in (…)/wp-content/plugins/multisite-enhancements/src/class-add-admin-favicon.php on line 213 Best regards

Thanks for sharing your plugin free for all. From several months ago, I am searching a plugin to centralize all comments from all sites in the same network. Are you planning something like that? If so, please let me know because I am starting the development about it. Sorry for my english too, I am a latin-american man :-).
