#21662 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

wp-signup.php says there's no limit to the number of blogs even when that is not desired or impossible

Please remove the statement in wp-signup.php that exclaims that there's no limit to the number of blogs one can create. It's on line 169.

I ask for two reasons:

  1. Hosters of WordPress Networks may not wish to encourage users to open a ton of blogs. I don't because I don't want to encourage a support nightmare.
  2. We might use a plugin that limits the number of blogs that users may create, like Limit Blogs per User.

For #2, an acceptable alternative may be to make it a string that can be overridden by a plugin. But the current situation, where it's a one-size-fits-all string, is bad because I have to manually edit it each time I (frequently) upgrade WordPress.

Technically, you could filter the string with the gettext filter. This filter should be used sparingly, but it would work for your situation.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.7

Moving to 3.7 for discussion.

Does it make sense to add a filter to the ... no limit to the number of sites you can have ... text in wp-signup.php?

wontfix may also make sense in favor of a nicer overall wp-signup.php template via something like #17948

Since it's already possible to change the string via gettext filter, I suggest closing in favor of #17948.
