On a WP 3.1 multisite install, I am having major problems with plugin availability when logged in as network admin.
Under WP 3.0.x and earlier, a network admin could go to any site's admin plugins page and be shown -
- inactive plugins (with option to activate or network activate)
- active plugins (this site only)
- active plugins (network activated)
and know exactly what was up to date, needed updating, and how it was active.
Under WP 3.1 this has all gone horribly wrong. On any individual site, it will show plugins active or inactive, but not whether they are MS-plugins, network activatable, or single site activatable.
Going to Network Admin - Plugins will "sort-of" show what was seen under 3.0.x and earlier, but what is displayed changes depending on which site's dashboard is being used.
There is no single plugins page "to rule them all" where an a network admin can get a complete overview of what is happening across the whole installation - this is causing problems reactivating and updating single site plugins, and network activating them from appropriate site dashboards (e.g. BuddyPress related plugins) because on one dashboard they show as active or network activated, but on another they don't.
Please devs, roll this one back - it's a nightmare to manage, the previous system was complex enough, but far easier than this system.
