  • Resolved madsem


    Hi Yoast,

    I wanted to use your plugin on a multisite blogfarm, but realized that users could edit my .htaccess under SEO—>edit files, which I would not like so much haha 🙂

    Any chance this plugin could come compatible with multisite blogfarms, maybe even with pre-configured title/description settings, so a blogowner can install the plugin network-wide and the settings are used on all blogs, without allowing users access to the plugin menu?

    I would love that so much 😀

    Hey, guess what’s coming in 0.2 🙂

    • You can restrict access to super admins
    • You can assign a site as “default” site, so all new sites that are created inherit the SEO settings from that site

    Ow yeah and the best news? 🙂 It’s done, committing in like 2 minutes.

    Yoast, you are the man 🙂 Thx a lot for this!

    But may I ask where the multisite network admin is? I can’t see it lol 🙂

    I was looking through your code a little bit and can see that you have added a MS network admin, but when I’m logged in as super admin there is no menu anywhere 🙂

    One more thing, would it be possible to remove the links in the meta widget if super admin set the SEO menu to be hidden, I think it’s just confusing for users when they see links like “If the SEO Title is empty, the preview shows what the plugin generates based on your title template.” but can’t go to any menu 😀

    Thanks again for this great plugin, I switched immediately from Platinum SEO Pack, because WordPress SEO has much better options and the interface is also very neat!

    you’ll need WP 3.1 for it, as 3.0 doesn’t have a network admin yet. If you’re on 3.1, click in the upper right on network admin 🙂


    I’m on WP 3.0.2, that’s the latest release or am I missing anything?
    Where can I get 3.1, it’s not listed ahhhhh 😀

    ahh I think I got it, Google is your friend 🙂 correct?
