SmartCrawl URL Crawler bug

When SmartCrawl is network-active, subsites show data from the main site on the URL Crawler screen.

    Hello there duffy_betterton,

    hope you're doing good today! :slight_smile:

    We've got some feedback from our SmartCrawl lead developer, and I quote:

    This is by design - URL crawler checks the main network.

    so there's no workaround for this.
    We do understand that this could be a good addition in SmartCrawl, it's just the way it's been designed so far. Feel free to create a new feature request about it here:

    The more members upvote for it, more probable that our developers will consider adding this in plugin's roadmap.

    Warm regards,
    Dimitris

    This is very disappointing and seems to be a huge oversight from the perspective of a multisite administrator and promoting the use of this plugin to my different sites. They need to see the errors and issues their subsite not the main site. How will they know if there are issues or errors for this subsite?

    Hello there duffy_betterton,

    hope you're doing good today! :slight_smile:

    This is more of a design decision than an oversight, as all of the services around our Hub are based on the main site of a multisite, rather than each subsite. There's been some requests, so these services could be used separately per subsite, that's something that would need some major refactoring though, not something easily doable. That's still in mind of our growth team and lead developers, can't promise or provide any kind of estimated time on this though, hope you understand.

    Meanwhile, you can use our external crawler page, WP Checkup, in order to scan any subsite (or mapped domain) for performance, SEO and security.

    Warm regards,
    Dimitris
