WordPress removes the Update Services ability (Settings – Writing) when you create a network (aka enables WordPress MU/Multisite).
Activate this plugin to get it back.
Note: This is only for WordPress setups with a network, aka multiple sites, aka multisites,
aka WPMU in WordPress 3 and later.
This plugin might work with older WordPress MU sites. I haven’t tested it though. If you do, please
let me know how it turned out.
- Extract the ZIP file and move the folder “activate-update-services”, with it contents,
/wp-content/plugins/in your WordPress installation
- Activate the pluing under ‘Plugins’ in the WordPress admin area
- Change your ping sites in ‘Update Service’ under the ‘Settings/Writing’ admin panel.
If you want all sites in your network to be able to do this them self you need to activate the
plugin page for them (Super Admin > Options).
