Support » Plugin: Admin Menu Editor » changing the subsite menu

  • Janis, we need all subsites to start with the same basic default dashboard menu. That’s how Admin Menu works out of the box. But we will have thousands of sites. What if some of them need a few different items in their menu? If we set our master menu in the master site, with “Use Per site” setting, and then clone the site to create new subsites, we’ll get your menu as a starting point ((I hope), but what if we have to change that master? We’d have no way to export that new edited master to the existing subsites.

    Is there some way we can manually force a starting menu in each subsite (e.g Use Menu ./mastersite/menu_name” so each subsite can begin with the latest version of our master menu, but local overrides can still apply?

    Assuming you have no provision for this, a) it would be nice if you did, and b) Is there a way we can get at the master site by its core label/object name, and manually copy it to the other sites? That would be an ok workaround for now.

    There’s currently no provision for that. I’ve added it to the long term to-do list.

    Is there a way we can get at the master site by its core label/object name, and manually copy it to the other sites?

    Perhaps. How much programming are you willing to do? When using per-site settings, the plugin configuration is stored in the ws_menu_editor_pro option, in the site-specific wp_options table. I imagine that you could copy that option from one site to another. As for getting the main site, I think you can get the site ID like this: get_network()->site_id.
