        Update Services adds the ‘Update Services’ box to WordPress Multisite.

        Multisite automatically removes the update services box from the Settings > Writing page found in WordPress. This plugin adds it back *AND* allows super admins to configure default services across an entire network.

        It gives you back the functionality to update different sites when you publish a new post.

        It also adds in new functionality (at the bottom of Network Admin > Settings) for super admins to configure additional/different default update services. Pretty neat huh :)

        To install:

        1. Download the plugin file
        2. Unzip the file into a folder on your hard drive
        3. Upload /update-services/ folder to /wp-content/plugins/ folder on your site
        4. Visit Network Admin -> Plugins and Network Activate it there.

        Note: If you have an older version of the plugin installed in /mu-plugins/ please delete it.

        • That’s it! No configuration necessary!
