Extended Super Admins

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

How do I let you know if I find a bug?

Please either hit me up on Twitter @cgrymala, report the issue in the WordPress Support Forums or post a comment on my website. If you e-mail me, please include "Extended Super Admins" in the subject line of the message. Thanks.

Can I use this plugin to grant extra capabilities to user(s)?

No. This plugin is only capable of removing privileges from a user. It cannot add extra privileges.

Can I use this plugin on a non-Multi-Site WordPress?

No. This plugin would be pointless for non-Multi-Site installations. It might actually generate errors if you try to use it on a site that doesn't have the multi-site capabilities turned on.

Can a user belong to more than one role?

At this time, you can assign a user to multiple roles, but only the first role in the list will have an effect on that user's capabilities. In a future version, I will look into allowing multiple roles to modify a user's capabilities.

How do I know what the capabilities actually do?

You can find descriptions of most of the capabilities in the WordPress codex.

Unfortunately, there is no definitive explanation for each and every capability, so you may have to do some testing and play around with things a bit to get things working exactly the way you want.

How does this plugin integrate with the WordPress Multi Network plugin from John James Jacoby or the Networks for WordPress plugin from David Dean?

If either of those plugins is active, this plugin will attempt to use and save any and all of its settings across all of the networks. There is currently no way, with WPMN or Networks for WordPress activated, to use different settings on individual networks.

How do I keep the users with the modified roles from being able to modify this plugin's settings?

This plugin creates a new capability called "manage_esa_options". If you do not want a user to be able to modify the settings for this plugin, simply revoke that capability from any users that belong to the modified role(s).
