This plugin allows you to create multiple levels of Super Admins in a multi-site configuration.


  • Added multi-network support for Networks+ plugin
  • Wrote custom function to switch networks in a multi-network setup
  • Optimized the way Codex information is retrieved, stored and displayed
  • Further optimized JavaScript
  • Minified JavaScript and CSS files used in the plugin (non-minified source files are still included in the package)
  • Added ability to manually flush the Codex information
  • Extended length of Codex cache from 7 days to 30 days
  • Minor change in CSS for 3.2
  • Removed "Activate" and "Deactivate" links from plugins screen if user doesn't have the manage_esa_options capability
  • Cleaned up improper uses of WPDB::prepare()
  • Cleaned up messy SQL calls
  • Removed useless ESA Manager role


  • Hopefully fixed issue that allowed modified users to edit their own permissions
  • Removed alpha indication from plugin version name


  • The JavaScript for this plugin has been optimized quite a bit
  • The admin options page now utilizes the standard WordPress meta box interface rather than using a custom interface (thanks to RavanH for the suggestion)
  • Updated the way the Codex dialogs are displayed on-screen


  • Fixed bugs that caused roles not to be deleted properly if they had been added without all criteria specified


  • Plugin now retrieves information about each capability (where available) from the WordPress Codex
  • In addition to John James Jacoby's WP Multi Network plugin, this plugin should now be compatible with David Dean's Networks for WordPress plugin.
  • Fixed bugs that caused roles not to be deleted properly
  • Made minor UI changes to make it more obvious how roles are added and modified
  • Added a notice warning users when a role is added without a name
  • Special thanks to RavanH for help testing and debugging this version


The "stable" copy of 0.2a was missing all subfolders. Corrected this issue.

This is the first version.
