define( 'WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true );
Here are the two contenders though I think there are even others. My set up is:
Multisite 4.0 installed, subdomain path. Needs are:
(1) Super Admin able to manage full scope of organization including MAINSITE.com
(10) Local Admins in charge of their own subsite.MAINSITE.com (mapped to a localdomain.com if using ‘WPmultisite’ functionality. If I go with ‘multi-network’ it seems I can use a NEWdomain.com without mapping but I lose Super Admin control (or do I? not sure if it’s there and I don’t see it or what)
Either way each Local Admin site needs to run Directory plugin https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/wordpress-directory and https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/pro-sites Each ‘Directory’ to be located on LocalDomain.com and each ‘ProSite’ to be located at childSites.LocalDomain.com (or domain mapped if desired).
So what it the current best strategy? I think it really depends on how database stores each site. Seems WPmultisite uses both wp_site and wp_blog tables but Multi-network uses only wp_blog table.
Do either ProSite or Directory plugins need to see wp_site? What interaction does Super Admin have with sites created with multi-network? (or more specifically, does Super Admin not play well with sites stored only in wp_blogs table?)
Thanks in advance for any thoughts!
