Support » Plugin: Multisite Robots.txt Manager » [Plugin: Multisite Robots.txt Manager] Using when super admin is not a site admin

  • Resolved frisco


    I network activated the plugin and the only sites in the drop down list are the sites that as a super admin I am a user of. After reading the response in this thread, the plugin is doing what was intended. However, what was intended isn’t the best choice for networks like mine, where the super admin is not an admin of every site (and doesn’t want to be). From what I can tell, there is no ability for a site admin to access the plugin’s features, and a super admin can only access if he is a user on every site.

    What about an improvement to either a) change the way the site list is populated? or b) allow site admins to access the settings for their site only?

    Those improvements would make a great plugin even better.

  • Hi

    I confirm this issue.
    Super admin shouldn’t be the admin for every blog in the network, but anyway he must have opportunity to manage Robots.txt for every blog.

    Hello Frisco and Roman,
    This issue has been corrected with version 0.3.1. Please let me know if you have any other suggestions or find any problems.


    Hello tribalNerd
    Unfortunately the problem still remains.

    Hello Roman,
    The ability for a super admin to manage blog settings they are not a member of is a security feature that is built into WordPress.

    The correction made to the new plugin version is related to admins being able to manage a unique Websites robots.txt file, from that Websites settings admin.


    Hi, I posted this support item but after investigation discovered it is the same issue as this one.

    i.e. the plugin assumes super admin is a member of every blog, which clearly isn’t the case in my site, and others.

    I have fixed my code so it seems to at least resolve my issues, i.e. fixed the redirect option cleaning across ALL blogs for the superuser, not just the ones owned by the superuser and adds the management page to blogs that the superuser is administrating without being a blog member.

    I’ll await the authors comments first to see if this is a deliberate design issue or just an oversight.
