remove menu from multisite sub-domain admin? (6 posts)

    i activated w3tc on a multisite using sub-domains. using the w3tc single network configuration i still see the performance/w3tc menu for each sub-domain while logged in as owner/admin of the sub-domains.

    is this how it is supposed to be?

    i would like to keep the sites as simple as possible for the sub-domain site owners. they have the site to write and create content, not for technical tasks.

    is there a way to disable this?

    Step 1 : Go to Miscellaneous section in Network Dashboard's General Setings under Performance.
    Step 2 : uncheck Hide performance settings

    That will remove performance in menu for subsites.

    i've checked and unchecked the single network configuration and hide performance setting check boxes a number of times but the performance menu item and w3tc setting still appear in my subsites for subsite admins.

    i also activated and tried the super admin menu manager & super admin plugin manager plugins to see if one of them could get rid of the performance menu item but no luck there either.

    any other clues or tips to try?

    The dropdown cannot be completly hidden because then you cannot clear the caches, upload CDN files etc on the subsites. Dashboard, CDN (if enabled) support should be visible.. If page cache, object cache etc is visibile then there is a bug and you can submit a bug report from the support tab of the plugin, include a screenshot of the dropdown.

    thanks for clearing up how it should appear frederick. i still can see the page cache, object cache, etc. here are a couple links to screenshots.

    super-admin misc settings: single network & hide

    subsite-admin performance menus: w/ page cache, object cache, etc

    although i think i understand the reasoning behind it, i'm still not so comfortable with sub-sites seeing these menus and dashboard messages. i believe these kinds of functions go over the head of ordinary users, and the more dead simple the dashboard remains, the better. thanks again frederick, i appreciate it.
