Support » Plugin: Networks for WordPress » [Plugin: Networks for WordPress] Backwords compatibility with MU Multi-Site?

  • Resolved maorb


    I currently use your former plugin – MU Multi-Site, which I’ve been using to create new sites on one WP installation.
    This plugin was installed once when I used the WPMU2.7.

    After upgrading to WP3.0.5 Multi-Site – your plugin is still working as well.
    Now I encountered this plugin that should replace the former.

    My questions are:
    1. Since the MU Multi-Site still works with 3.0.5, will it still be working with 3.1.1 or I must replace it with networks-for-wordpress?

    2. Will I have backward compatibility ? That plugin created a table in the db called wp_site; Will the new plugin use that table and won’t break any functionality I have there?

    Thanks for your interest, Maor!

    1. Multi-Site Manager will not work with WP 3.1 or later; you will have to move to Networks for WordPress.

    2. It is backwards compatible. The wp-sites table was not actually created by Multi-Site Manager, but is a part of WPMU. It still exists in WP 3.1.1 (when you enable the “Network”), and Networks for WordPress works with it.

    Let me know if you have any other questions or issues during the upgrade. I performed a similar upgrade from 2.7 to 3.1 just a few weeks ago and it went well.

    Thanks David for your quick response.
    I will try to migrate this next week, and will post here how it went.

    Anyway, just for your stats, the old plugin does works with 3.0.5 🙂 (but this probably since there is no network admin yet in 3.0.5)


    I’ve done the update in my dev environment (not yet on production).
    The new plugin seems to work good as expected.
    The only one annoying issue I encountered is that I should login to each of my domain’s wp-admin and run the WP network update script, since I use a MS installation with about 100 domains, each appears to be a network with one site inside.
    Is there a way to run the update script once and that it will be implied to all netoworks?

    Unfortunately not without modifying the network/upgrade.php file.

    If you remove the site_id parameter from the SQL query in that file (looks like line 50), you can upgrade every blog at once.


    I installed the ‘networks for wordpress’ plugin on a new WordPress 3.1 install.
    I want the URL structure for this site is .. Root blog Parent Blog Child Blog

    I tried to create new network of parent blog its works fine . When i tried to create child blog its 404 error page showing.

    Can you provide me some step by step detail how i can use this plugin to create network and assign blog for it.
