#26953 new enhancement

Network Admin "Site Edit" page needs Settings trimmed down

Piggybacking off of The UI/UX settings revamp, the Edit Sites pages needs a reskin as well.

Most important is the Settings page, which is a massive list of options.php and really most of this should never be edited by anyone, not even a network admin.

This proposal (which was suggested by Nacin) would be to change this to be not a massive dumping ground but a list of items that only the network/super admin can and should change. Anything that is editable by the site-admin (such as Blogname and Blogdescription) would not be displayed.

Items that should be shown:

  • Fileupload Realpath
  • Fileupload Url
  • Permalink Structure (nb: see #12002 - this is the only way around that at this time)
  • Uploads Use Yearmonth Folders (questionable - Nacin says no)

But really other than those, there's no need to have that whole "Settings" page and it could be folded into the main "Info" tab, making life much smaller and easier for everyone.

Note: Home is found on wp-admin/network/site-info.php. You can't edit siteURL since PER sites can't move where WP is installed :)

This ticket comes secondary to #27003 in that any changes there may impact the design here :D

Can we get a screenshot and option listing of the current state so that we have something to compare against over time?

Two screenshots added. All the options on that second one on a clean site... Are long. I didn't add themes and users since those are okay I think, and really it's that last settings page that needs love. Because here are your defaults:
