Information when you choose to edit a site and you go to the settings tab with the large list of functions.
you rarely do things on that page, only when a site has issues. it;s there in case you cannot access the db directly, as it's pretty much a dump of that blog's tables (other than content).
Wanting to know how they cross reference each other in the database structure and everything editable about them.
Looking for a core way to monitor those settings for each site and be able to pull a compiled printable list when functions are changed by admins on other blog sites in the multisite.
You don't. not sure why you would need to? Do you really need to know when every user changes their theme and updates widgets? that's a lot of info to process unnecessarily.
It nice to have a car manual that comes with the car that covers info about basic functions, I was just looking for an in-depth manual that you can also get on car but doesn't come with it. Just to make a comparison.
while it's not as extensive as it needs to be, that's closer as well.
To continue the analogy, i have a rough idea how my car works, but mostly I get in it and drive. ;)
Would like to find a way to pull all the core css files from the multisites to combined them into one css file.
Not needed. the admin areas literally all use one copy of the same files.
on the theme side: also not needed.
Looking for performance enhancements that a super admin can do for all the sites.
that would all be server side and db side. not in the code. there's only one copy for all sites.
