WP Super Network

Description

WP Super Network is a plugin that super-charges your WordPress multisite network!

This plugin will enhance WordPress multisite functionality in three core ways:

  1. Enable posts and pages to be instantly republished across different sites in a network
  2. Enable an existing site on a network to be used as the main site for a new WordPress network
  3. Enable all sites on a network to be edited from the same admin area.

How to Use This Plugin

After installation, you will find a new Super Network screen in the WordPress network admin. Note that only super admins of the network have access to the network admin. Also note that this plugin will deactivate itself unless multisite is already active. If you have not yet set up multisite, you can follow the instructions here.

In the Super Network screen, you can see a list of all posts and pages across the network that were flagged to be republished (shared) across the whole network. You can also see a list of all sites on the network that they can be republished to.

To flag posts and pages for republication, access the Posts or Pages screen in WordPress, find the one you want to republish, and click on Republish below the post title. If you want to revoke the republication, just click on Revoke in the same place.
