Support » Networking WordPress » Admin Doc Wrong?

  • In the help for Multisite, My Sites.Settings, click on the provided link:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Network_Admin_Settings_Screen

    Under Menu Settings, it says

    1. Click on System Admin > Options 2. Select Enable administration menus for Plugins 3. Click Save Changes

    I cannot find any menu item labled “System Admin” or “Options”.

    Is this doc obsolete for 3.8? Where is this function in 3.8?

  • That entry is old. The ‘Enable administration menus’ option is inside the network setting that the page is referring to. It is the very last option.

    Network Admin -> Settings -> Network Settings

    I’m trying to enable plugins on member sites. I checked the “Pludins” box, but member site admins cannot install site-specific plugins. So, it looks like the documentation is both out of date and wrong.

    I do not believe that site admin have the ability to install plugins. The documentation does not say that either. It states ‘This means your users wonโ€™t have access to the plugin admin panel inside their dashboard unless you first enable access to plugins network wide.’

    Once the plugins are installed by a super (network) admin, the super admin can allow site admins to enable/disable plugins. When plugins are “network activated”, the plugin is active and a site admin cannot de-active.

    Hope that clears up your understanding of plugin management.

    Correct. NETWORK admin can install plugins.
