  • Sites: See a large table of your network summarized, show sites with all users, themes, plugins, and more.
  • Plugins: a list of all plugins and which sites are uses them, highlights plugins that aren’t being used by any site
  • Themes: table of all themes, who’s using them and which themes are being unused

  • A site that hasn’t been modified in over a year
  • A theme or plugin that is unused on any site
  • An archived or non-public site

Road Map

The current todo list. Please add any additional requests into support.

  • Add info bar “x live sites (x archived, x deleted) with x plugins and x themes, running on WP x powered by php x”
  • Add styles to inline
  • lists
  • Change 1|0 for Public/Deleted/Archive to real words
  • Add domains from domain mapping
  • Confirm compatibility with subdomain networks
  • Use real theme names, not their slugs
  • Use real plugin names, not paths, in Sites > Active Plugins
  • Expand/Collapse entire rows to reveal all info for a site inline, for less overwhelming view
  • Add “nerd” mode that’ll toggle more meta information about themes, plugins, users, and sites
  • Add “enabled themes” to Sites overview to show what sites have access to themes

Why would I need this?

I personally needed it to delete dated/forgotten plugins that posed a security risk by keeping around. Having a large number of different sites in a network, it’s sometimes hard to determine which plugins are being used where. This plugin clearly highlights which plugins are not being used at all.

When wordpress network installations get large and you want to know what’s where and what’s not needed, this plugin is the simplest solution.

Can I use it on a single installation instead of a network?

No, just go to “Plugins” in the admin.
