Extended Super Admins
3.5? (3 posts)

    Has anyone tried this on WP3.5 yet? I don't want to blow up my system...

    Here's our situation, and why this (if it works) is invaluable. We're running a multisite installation with over 2000 individuals' "ePortfolios" so far -- and growing.

    One of our Instructional Designers is tasked with managing the students who are using the system, and so she needs to be able to go into every single blog and review or correct it. But once she had rights on that many blogs, she couldn't log in because the server timed out retrieving her profile -- many thousands of lines in the usermeta table. Not only would her request time out, but the whole server was brought to its knees.

    So clearly she needs to be a superadmin, and in fact once I wiped those thousands of lines from the database, she was able to log in immediately.

    But just as clearly we don't want her installing or removing plugins.

    At this point, I don't think the plugin does work with 3.5 (everything looks like its working, but the capabilities I tried to remove during testing didn't actually get taken away like they should have).

    That said, I'm not sure this plugin is what you want. Instead, you'll probably need either a plugin, or some custom code that skips retrieving the users' list of "My Sites"

    Out of curiosity, how many sites is this person in charge of?

    Hey Curtiss,

    Great plugin, we are using it on 3.5.1, don't see any problems here, but when can we expect an official update?
