Enhance Multisite for Network Admins with different topics


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, shows which site has this plugin active.
  • On the network theme page, shows which blog has the theme active and is a Child theme.
    • If you have more as 4 sites active for an plugin, theme then is the list only available via click for an proper way to not overload the admin interface.
  • Change Admin footer text for Administrators to view currently used RAM, SQL, RAM version fast
  • Adds Favicon from 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 a like a custom path for each favicon, please see the documentation for this feature.
  • Removes also the 'W' logo and his sub-links in 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.
  • 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 src/core.php
    • If you will develop with the alternative to this function from my source, then use the method get_blog_list() in class Multisite_Core. My source also use caching with the Transient API. More about the function in src/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 theme list to find your target fast. Works on single theme page and also network theme page.
  • Handy ssl identifier to each site in network site view page.
