#12848 closed enhancement (fixed)

Network instructions need to be more verbose

Since the release of WP 3.0 beta 1 we have had a number of people testing the network configuration. The only problem is a number of them seem to be placing the required code in wp-config.php below the line reading:

/* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

Add a few extra words to the instructions to specify that it should go above.

(In [13999]) More verbose message on how to add MS constants to one's config file. props sivel, see #12848

(In [14000]) Prevent half-baked loading of MS that would happen when constants are added into wp-config below the wp-settings include. Now it would error on the redefinition of the MULTISITE constant, instead of vague errors, and prevent any MS from loading. see #12848

I've been thinking about [14000] for a while. This will keep the site operational as non-MS, instead of a half-loaded MS admin screen and a fatal error on get_dirsize().

Most people wouldn't see the notice spit out by the redefinition of a constant, but I think "Why am I not getting my network panels?" is better than "Why isn't WordPress working? The Network feature sucks."

I realized I can now improve the is_multisite() logic with:

function is_multisite() {
	if ( defined( 'MULTISITE' )
		return (bool) MULTISITE;

	if ( defined( 'VHOST' ) || defined( 'SUNRISE' ) )
		return true;

	return false;

Great thinking, I like this.
