Multisite Global Search
Error when activating on multisite? (3 posts)

    When I activate this plugin on a multisite installation, I get this error:
    Multisite Global Search requires multisite installation. Please create a network first, or deactivate Multisite Global Search.

    Any suggestions? Does this work for anyone on WP 3.4.2?

    This was working for me, but found a similar error on deleting a site.

    I had to Network Deactivate the plugin to delete the site. After doing so, I got the error "Multisite Global Search requires multisite installation. Please create a network first, or deactivate Multisite Global Search." and was unable to reactivate the plugin.

    Creating a new site allowed me to reactivate the plugin.

    I can replicate this by deactivating a site (plugin breaks) and reactivating it (plugin works again.)

    I'd be grateful for any ideas?

    (On Version 1.2.11 of plugin, WordPress 3.5.2)

    So, think I found cause of this in my case...

    The main site was set to "Discourage search engines from indexing this site" as it is a DEV site. Turning this back on prevents this behaviour.

    This won't be an issue for me on my live site as this will be indexed, but thought I should comment back here on this in case it affects anyone else.
