Multinetwork Installation - site listing with Blogs Directory

I have a multi-site/multi-network installation. I was using blogs directory to try to get a list of sites for each network on a page at the root of each network.
Unfortunately, when I network activate blogs directory on any single network, it shows me all the sites from all the networks.

Is there any way to make it more granular so it only shows me sites for each?

Thanks

    Hi David,

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

    Just wanted to make sure that have you created the WordPress Multi Network using the following WP Multi Network plugin and you are talking about it and not about WordPress Multi Network as described here http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network ?

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-multi-network/

    Would you mind if I logged in to your site and did some testing so that i can help you to achieve it? If this is ok, just grant me temporary admin access to your site by clicking "Grant Access" button in the WPMU DEV Dashboard Settings as described on the following page and reply on this thread after granting it?

    Vinod,Yes

    Good morning. Yes, this is a Multi-Network / multi-site system. The Multi-site system was originally configured and the networks were created using the wp-multi-network plugin. The structure of the networks are as follows (ficticious names):
    wp.network.com
    fs.wp.network.com
    student.wp.network.com
    sites.wp.network.com
    While the top level network is being held for documentation and other uses, Each one of the others represents a different group of users/sites. We wanted to have the root of each contain a site listing that could be used for that network to locate site and go to sites. i.e the root site of fs.wp.network.com would contain a listing of all the sites on that network only, the root site of student.wp.network.com would only hold the site listing for that network etc.

    I have installed the Blogs Directory plugin on the system and activated it at fs.wp.network.com - everything worked as expected - the plugin created the sites page etc, however, the site list contains all the sites from all the networks. I subsequently activated it on the student.wp.network.com network and the sites page is empty.

    I've gone through the configuration setting and not identified anything that will allow me to segregate network listings.

    I do have the WPMUDev Dashboard installed on the system and would love to grant you access. Unfortunately, the system is behind our corp firewall which would block you from coming in. If you could privately email me the IP subnet that your desktops would try to call in from I can get access provided. if that isn't possible, then please let me know what information I can send you to see what we can figure out.

    Regards
    Dave

    Ash,

    Good day! I apologize for taking so long to get back on this issue. We have a public system setup now that can be access from the internet which is also having the same issue. you can see the site listing if you go to

    http://fs.wp.odu.edu
    http://student.wp.odu.edu
    http://sites.wp.odu.edu

    If you reference my information in my previous post we have a multisite, multinetwork installation based on the network structure:
    wp.odu.edu
    fs.wp.odu.edu
    student.wp.odu.edu
    sites.wp.odu.edu
    each network will have sites that are grouped by roles.

    if you go to them you will see site lists for all the networks on each one. For this system I can provide support access to WPMUDev.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

    Thanks
    Dave

    Hi Dave,

    By default the Blogs Directory plugin lists all sites from your multisite network and not only from your WP Multi Network so we have to develop some custom code to achieve this.

    So to develop custom code would you mind if I access your site using FTP and did some testing? This might help get to the bottom of this faster. If this is ok, just send log in info through our secured contact form: https://premium.wpmudev.org/contact/
    - Choose "I have a different question"
    - Include my name in the subject "Vinod Dalvi"
    - Include the URL of this post in your message so that I may track this issue better
    - Include login information (Wordpress admin info username + password )
    - Include FTP Details

    Regards,
    Vinod Dalvi

    Hello @David

    I hope you are well today.

    I have talked to the developer and he said that the blogs directory will conflict with multi-network I am afraid. There is no way to make the plugin working in a multi network, there are lots of custom code needed to make it fit with multi network.

    Also, if you need to customise this then you can post a job in our job board where you can hire a developer to assist further: https://premium.wpmudev.org/wpmu-jobs/ Please note that, no WPMU official staff is available in the job board.

    Cheers
