Support » Plugin: Network Subsite User Registration » considering deactivating because of message

  • Resolved Deleyna


    I’m getting ready to launch a promo on my network where I will hopefully be adding new sites. However, on one of my sub-sites today, I saw a banner asking me to leave a review for this plugin. I dismissed it…but I do not want my clients seeing such banners on their sub-sites.

    Can you consider turning this off, please? Or do I need to find a different plugin that won’t be posting banners on the admin area of sub-sites?

    The prompt is only visible by those who can install plugins. You can see this in the code ..

    if ( current_user_can( 'install_plugins' ) ) {

    on a Network WordPress Installation all local subsite administrators can not install plugins, this is limited to the network wide Admin (or super user). So although you have seen this only those who have access to the whole Network will likewise see it and that will be very few if not just you (?).

    I suggest that you test using John Blackbourn’s User-switching plugin which is an amazing help to see your site through other user accounts. (Note: of course you will need to wait the for the timeout under their account of 30 days before the prompt will be shown, you can speed this up by editing the time out constant NSUR_PROMPT_DELAY_IN_DAYS)

    That’s good info, although understanding how annoying these messages are would be better.

    Have you ever had one pop up during updates? Did you know clicking on them during updates can be a disaster? Ever had one interfere with another message? Ever had a user miss a critical message because they are so used to dismissing these? I know plugin authors need to make a living, but these are becoming a problem.

    I’m sorry to rant. I’m just really tired of these messages. At least you have the constant maybe we can figure out how to lower the frequency.
