This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Network Sites Hierarchy


This plugin creates and maintains one or multiple hierarchies of blogs in the WPMS network. Options screens appear in network admin dashboard. The blogs hierarchy can be used for several purposes such as:

  1. consolidate posts (or latest posts) from descendant blogs only
  2. display a list of descendant blogs or even a tree of blogs from any node

Other features

  1. Hierarchy cannot loop (cannot set as parent one of the descendants or itself)
  2. The main site (blog_id 1) cannot have a parent
  3. Individual blogs may be taken out of hierarchy
  4. Multiple independent hierarchies may be created
    Limitations: this plugin is not optimized for large installations. More than 50 blogs can be hard to manage.


  • Hierarchy admin interface


  1. Upload to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Unzip the archive
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
