WordPress Multisite Enhancements

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 enhance the network area for super admins with useful functions.

  • Add 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 have this plugin active
  • On the network theme page, show which blog have the theme active and is it a Child theme
  • Change Admin footer text for Administrators to view fast currently used RAM, SQL, RAM Version
  • Add Favicon from theme folder to the admin area to easier identify the blog, use the favicon.ico file in the theme folder of the active theme in each blog
  • Add 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.
  • Remove also the 'W' logo and his sub-links in admin bar
  • Add status to each site in the admin bar to identifier fast if the site noindex status and 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 check this and get a alternative in inc/autoload/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. She use also caching with the Transient API. See more about the function on 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 accept a array with arguments, see the description.
    • But if you use WordPress 4.6 and higher that a new alternate ;) - get_sites() is 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 include.
  • Filter theme list to find fast your goal. Works on single theme page and also network theme page.
