Hi Tyler Postle & jetmac Thanks for the response. I understand it takes time to "modernize" but can only wonder who is responsible for the approval / selection / analysis of new features in the plugins that do get upgrades? Whoever it is - they seem pretty much out of touch with the competition. Unfortunately when you have a client demanding functionality the "its been added to the features list and it depends on how many 1+ it gets ..." - that excuse is very lame. A client doesn't care - they know the availability of other plugins out there and will only pay (me) for providing working solutions & functionality. Welcome to the real world. So it hurts my bottom line when I have to purchase a different plugin because the Wpmu ones just dont hack it in the working world. BTW - cant find the SEO audit with smartcrawl that you mentioned - nothing on the site?

Hi Sajid Nice reply - thanks for the effort. Tried on two different websites with 2 different googledrives Followed your steps exactly on both posts -thanks for the effort. I cannot authorize either of the destinations. Made abs sure that there were no spaces, etc. and all names were identical everywhere. Saved a dozen times.

jetmac - I could not have said it better - there are any number of pretty useless plugins on WPMU - most obviously out of date. If we all only had time to test every plugin - I think we might find that our annual subscriptions are not nearly so "valuable" as we think. I continually install WPMU plugins only to find they are outdated and seriously lacking if functionality - and then spend hours looking for others on the web (which are way, way more functional that WPMU). WPMU is so out of touch with the business industry as well - just look at their LaLa land themes - not an actual working business theme in sight. I have actually figured out that I am only using a small handful of their plugins - including the so-called "super hero" ones. When subscription time comes around again, this will be a no-brainer to leave WPMU - even though I have been with them for more than 5 years now and the support community is fabulous.

+1 HTML Absolutely required and agree with jetmac about updating to latest protocols - without them I am going to have to source an alternative somewhere Any advice about a more practical alternative outside of WPMU?

Hi Wouter Another (best) way is to create child themes for each site and then put individual 404 pages in each. Found it the best way to avoid losing...
247web commented on CoursePress Pro Assessment GradingNov 19, 2016
HI I have been asking for this feature since November 2014 and besides one response, nothing has happened. Also about CoursePress Accumulative Assessment quiz feature. Having to point my many training clients to other plugins like Sensei and even a LMS theme (not ideal). Such pity - its a great plugin but what is the use of a course that you cannot grade properly?

+1 Excellent idea for an "internal newsletter" - please add HTML coding to the plugin as a standard feature - maybe toggle on and off?
247web commented on BP Group Email attachments? Possible?Oct 11, 2016
+1 definitely would be useful
