#12807 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Add a small section regarding Network current status on options-general

Reported by: PotterSys Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 3.0
Component: Multisite Keywords: has-patch

Description

As WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE must be defined on wp-config.php before creating a Network, many users will be unaware about how to start using this feature.

I think the basics about Networks should be on the first Options page available (just pointing about how to enable it; or to the Network page on Tools).

It's just a suggest, so feel free to improve/suggest/bury it

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

No, we very specifically debated this weeks ago and decided *nothing* about Network should appear in the UI of WP without that config change. Closing as wontfix. In a future version when we've improved the multisite experience to the level of being consistent with the rest of the WP experience, then we'll bring it in and make it easier to access.

Roger. Sorry!

BTW, could you please point out the discussion; for future reference?
