#18241 closed feature request (wontfix)

Network admin level settings override of blog settings

There are many great plugins which try to get close to this but as a admin on a network of 500 blogs I don't really want blog admins to be changing the Timezone, or permalink structures of their blogs.

I think in Network Admin it would be good if you could define:

+ Defaults for each setting
+ Hide each setting, on a per setting basis rather than the whole page
+ Update settings for all blogs

I know this sounds like a great plugin and it would be but, core does not have filters or hooks to allow you to programmatically disable things on a setting by setting basis, only on a page by page basis.

I have looked into CSS and Javascript options and have found it is not really possible to maintain a plugin like this because backward computability would soon become a nightmare if someone changes something minor on the page you suddenly have to test for every possibility.

I think this would be a great feature for core which is worth having and not just a separate plugin, however short of that, I have raised another ticket along side this regarding the lack of pluggability of option pages in core.

This feature would probably rely on something like this: #16413

  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing as wontfix since if #16413 is fixed, a nice plugin could be written.
