Support » Plugin: Multisite Enhancements » Ability to share menus and widget contexts

  • Hi Frank,

    great to see a really good swissknife-like plugin for multisite installations. I’m using a multisite installation for my regional blog project PF-BITS with some special using. Let me introduce this to understand my suggestions for your plugin.

    I’m running the first instance on http://www.pf-bits.de and have some pages there and of course all postings of this blog.

    For a special need I have configured a second instance on http://www.pf-bits.de/mahlzeit/. This was neccessary because I’m using some special code and custom post formats so I don’t wanted to “contaminate” the first instance with these things. And I wanted a strictly separated area for content providers.

    First and second instance look the same and, interestingly, WordPress Multisite is a powerful goal for this work of WordPress frameworking.

    What I’m missing is a good working plugin solution for sharing menus and widget contexts. The need for this is reasonable – the used menus are already done on the first instance and it would be good to tell a second instance to get the (or some) menu(s) from the first instance.

    I found a plugin named “Multisite Master Shared Menu” but this plugin gets only the first menu of the mother instance.

    A second thing is the sharing of widget contexts. I have found a second plugin named “Multisite Widgets Context” that does this sharing of widget contexts well but it could better in a big multisite solution. I think it would be a really time saver to define a “sublevel” of widget context which could be linked easily to all instances of a multisite installation. I told this idea to the author but badly with no response.

    It would be great to hear/read your thoughts on this things.

    Regards,
    Besim

    Hi Besim.

    Your requirements are clear, I think, but not in the context of my plugin. I list only stuff to help to understand the usage of plugin, themes in the Multisite context.
    Currently I haven’t a solution for share this objects in the multisite context.

    best.
