  • Resolved rptrevor


    Hello – thanks for this plugin!

    Any suggestions or clues on MultiSite configuration? I’ve installed the plugin. I am super-admin. I now get emails for all “my sites” (e.g.:,, etc.). Each email has the same file list, which contains files from all sites in the multi-site, and which may or may not have any updates associated with the specific site that is getting the email (e.g. – the notification sent re might only list files associated with

    Similarly, the “View File Changes and Clear this Alert” dialog that appears in dashboard of contains files not associated with site2.

    I think I understand the issues you might face with associating files in the file system with specific sites in MultiSite. I wonder if there is a way to set it up so the multisite super-admin gets 1 email with all the notifications, and the admins for the subsites don’t see anything, either email or on the dashboard?

  • Hi, rptrevor,

    I have a multisite. When I configured my site, I had a suggestion from Scott. Try this.

    1. Do not activate the plugin on your network. Do configure it on each site.
    2. If you want all emails as super-admin, you activate the plugin on your parent site and set your document root as File Check Root.
    3. Don’t activate rest sites of your network.

    But this has a problem, admins can see the plugin on their dashboard.

    Hi rptrevor,

    Quite simply put WPFMP doesn’t support multi-site. However as o6asan has pointed out there is a bit of a work around.

    I’ve looked into multi-site support many time and have yet to come up with any working solution.

    You can do what o6asan suggested. I would also recommend that you put this in your config file: define('SC_WPFMP_ADMIN_ALERT_PERMISSION', 'manage_network'); This limits the alert to be shown to super users only.

    Thanks for the replies! I’ll try out these suggestions.
