This is one of the action items for the 3.4 release.

Mark Jaquith and Pete Mall are leading the Multisite agenda.

Drew Jaynes (DrewAPicture) and Japh Thompson (Japh) are doing primary dev for autocomplete

Administering Multisite installs would be a lot easier if we had autocomplete for users and sites. As it is, the UI for sites is optimized for a small number of sites, and the UI for users often requires you to know the user's exact info.

Any place where multisite is prompting you for a site or a user, or you're trying to find a specific site or user, we should have autocomplete. This includes for Super Admins when adding a user from the Site admin instead of the Network admin.


  • Identify the areas to hit.
  • Discuss whether regular site Administrators should get autocomplete on the global users list.
  • Determine whether existing autocomplete JS tools are satisfactory. If not, improve.
  • Divide and conquer.
