Description

The list table on wp-admin/network/sites.php currently shows for every site

  • the site's URL
  • the date when the site was last updated
  • the date when the site was created
  • the number of users.

It would be nice to have another column which contains the email address of the administrator which is stored in the admin_email option. That way, the network administrator(s) could see at a glance the email addresses of the people responsible for the single websites.

Interesting idea, though it seems a little niche. I'm not sure I see the immediate value of adding the email address here. Can you explain what your specific use-case is for exposing this data in the list table?

Replying to DrewAPicture:

I have a multisite network where, for some sites, the administrator changes quite frequently. Sometimes the new admin forgets to change the admin email address to his email address. If there were a column for the admin email address, I could check if the addresses are up-to-date without opening the options page for every single site that I want to check.

Sometimes mails even bounce because the old admins deleted their email accounts but the email address is still set as admin email. Having all addresses at a glance would make it easy to locate the site where the old email address is used.

Interesting idea, though it seems a little niche.

Yeah, now that I think about it, it probably is a niche.
