12 New Multisite Tools for Network Management in WordPress 3.0
Whether you’re new to WordPress Multisite or have been using it for years, you’ll want to check out these new tools written specifically for use with Multisite 3.0. Many of these plugins help to make your Multisite network more user friendly and easier to manage. You’ll also find greater levels of multisite-specific privacy options and CMS tweaks.
Moderate New Blogs
This plugin flags new blogs in SuperAdmin >> Sites as “Awaiting Moderation” so that you can leave site registration open and retain the ability to moderate new blogs. No registrations slip through without your approval.
Toggle Meta Boxes
WordPress has quite a few options that many users don’t need and may never use. Simplify the Post, Page, Link, and Comment editing forms by toggling the meta boxes on or off through the plugin’s options. You can also toggle the Quick Edit buttons, Media buttons, Screen Options and Help links.
This plugin lets you enable or disable WP3 Multisite backend menus. It adds options to toggle administration menus at Super Admin >> Optons page under “Menu Settings”. You’ll be able to disable the Deltete Blog, Permalinks, Import, Media Upload, Add Users and Themes menus to simplify the dashboard for users.
This plugin adds a simple dropdown menu in the administration header that allows you (and every site user) to switch between the administration of every site he is a member of (and so work for super-admin, admin, contributors,…).
Proper Network Activation
This plugin improves network activation of plugins so that when activating or deactivating it triggers the de/activation hook on all sites in the network. It also triggers the activation hook for all active network plugins on that site when creating a new site.
Multisite User Management
More Privacy Options
This plugin adds three more levels of privacy to the Options >> Privacy page: Blog visible to any logged in community member, blog visible only to registered users of blog, and blog visible only to administrators.
Activate Update Services
WP Multi Network
Turn your multi-site installation of WordPress into many multi-site networks, all surrounding one central user base. WP Multi Network allows super admins to create new network collections of sites, allowing for infinitely extensible site, network, and domain arrangements.
