[resolved] Edit Author Slug doesn't work in network mode (3 posts)

    If I install and Network Activate the Edit Author Slug plugin, it has no effect in network mode. No new menu pages are exposed, and I cannot find any new options in existing menu pages.

    Network activating the plugin does work. There are no menus added, so you won't see any. As stated under the "Installation" tab at (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/edit-author-slug/installation/), you can find the extra settings under Settings > Permalinks, and Users > Users/Your Profile. However, this plugin was developed to work at the site level, so there are two things to keep in mind:: 1) you'll likely have issues with saving options (something I plan to address in a future release), 2) since there's is only one user table, if site #1 changes a user's author slug, this will change it network-wide. This will occur again for site #2 of that user, and so on. There is a way around this, but I haven't yet decided if it's worth the effort.

    I dug into this and found that settings save without issue, so the plugin works fine when Network Activated. However, the issues with the user_nicename changing sitewide still remains. Again, I haven't yet decided if the gain is worth the cost at the moment.
