Site count incorrect when using wpmu_create_blog() from a different network — at Initial Version

When using wpmu_create_blog() to create a site on a network ID other than the current, both networks end up with incorrect site counts. The current network gets +1, the other network ID remains the same.

In the event this site is the first site in a new network, no site or user counts are saved in wp_sitemeta.

This is because of a fleet of functions that do not accept a network ID a a parameter. It's also due to a lack of a network "switching" API to flip the $current_site global around when calling them.

The following functions lack proper Network attribution:

  • wp_maybe_update_network_site_counts()
  • wp_maybe_update_network_user_counts()
  • wp_update_network_counts()
  • wp_update_network_user_counts()
  • wp_update_network_site_counts()
