Reviews

Super useful & solid plugin, 148 domains & smooth sailing.

I’ve been using this plugin for a few months now, it should be built in to WordPress. My install started with about 50 domains, it’s now up to 148 and I’ve only ever had one problem, it wouldn’t display that many sites. I mentioned this to the developer and an updated version was released right away, now all of the domains are in one handy menu.

I wouldn’t setup another wpmu without it, a super useful and solid plugin.
