Cuts through the hard stuff to make it easy
By , for WP 3.8

I've been playing around with multisite for a while and thought I had it basically nailed, until I tried mixing it up with multiple domain names. After a bit of flailing around and directly editing the site and blog tables, I found this little beauty. Thanks for taking the hard work out of multi-network WordPress websites!

Broken as of WordPress 3.5
By , for WP 3.5.2

For me, clicking on "Add New" in the content area of "Networks" gives an error message about not being able to load. Clicking "Add New" in the sidebar brings up settings for creating a network. But, it either ignores or refuses to add anything I provide without any kind of message. It just blanks out all of my settings.

Thanks to the Support forum, I understand that this plugin has been broken since WordPress 3.5 and that fixes are in development. Until that time comes, the WordPress compatibility shown should be rolled back to whatever version it does work with (if any).

I further understand that a beta "trunk" version (whatever that means) of this plugin exists which can be used with WordPress 3.5 and up. Details on how to obtain this version and how to make it work are sketchy at best. But, if the existence is true, it would be better offered in a more formal way and explicitly as a "beta" version.

Based on this plugin's FAQs page, the authors seem to think this plugin is intuitive. But, based on the vague setting labels I've seen (once I finally figured out where they even were), a brief primer is in order.

"Where can I find documentation?
"Not much to talk about really. Check the code for details!"

To the developers: Please delegate someone who can figure out how to use this plugin to write some instructions for it. It's very frustrating to figure out. And, no examples are available, even if it did ever work.

it simply does not work.
By , for WP 3.5

Since 3.5 the plugin does not work (not sure it did before). Posting on the support forum does not seem to attract the plugin devs' attention unfortunately.

Great plugin once you've applied the fix!
By , for WP 3.4.2

Great plugin - had some issues once I first installed it but it works now. Using this plugin in conjunction with a BuddyPress and WP Multi-site install.

Used this link to find the fix that some WP installs may have.

Looking forward to an update on this plugin!
