Analytics
The WPMU DEV Dashboard includes basic analytics that don’t require any setup, third party integration and no extra plugins. No more hunting down and adding tracking codes. Just activate analytics in the Dashboard’s settings and start tracking. The data is displayed in your WordPress admin dashboard, in The Hub and Hub Reports. Multisite managers can use subdomains to create reports that include analytics unique to each subsite. You can also control which users see your traffic data.

White Label Plugins
Remove all WPMU DEV branding from our plugins, and replace it with your own, including adding your own custom graphic. This includes removing the WPMU DEV documentation button and the default WPMU DEV footer text, where you can replace our text with yours.

Remove WPMU DEV Branding, aka the Hero-Hider
Remove Super Hero images from WPMU DEV plugins entirely, and replace the plugin images that appear on the dashboard with your own logo by clicking the Custom button and using the image uploader to upload your logo.

Remove WPMU DEV Footers
Remove or replace the default WPMU DEV footer text from all plugin screens by clicking the Custom button and entering your custom footer text into the field provided. Clicking the Custom button without entering replacement text will remove the footer from all plugin screens and leave the footer area empty.

Remove Documentation Links
Most WPMU DEV plugins include a View Documentation link that accesses our documentation library for that plugin. Click the Hide button to remove the View Documentation link if you don’t want users to have access to that information.
