In the WP Multisite Network Admin, we have the following menu options to control the network:


My suggestion is to add to this list, a "Media" menu that creates global images for all sites. Anything loaded into this global Media menu is instantly available to all sub-sites.

Yes. I understand there are plugins for this feature. Just like domain mapping was a plugin for multisite for years. It's time that multisite get this feature added to it's core.

I think maybe there's a disconnect between what many of you at WP do as coders, and those of us coding for our customers. It's understandable that there are plugin options, but there are key functions that WP multisite needs to make it the best solution out of the box. This is one of those solutions.

Speaking for myself, I build websites within the same industry. This allows me to duplicate an entire sub-domain over to a new customer site, and I have them up and running with a brand new website before we hang up the phone.

That's the true power of multisite. Just like WP did for bloggers, WP Multisite is now the industry standard for all industries. Multisite is at the bleeding edge of this new online standard. You can't even find this capability in any other website framework.

From my perspective, and a few others, global media should be a core standard. Look closely at 'how' WP Multisite is being used by your web/sys admins, and you'll see this is one of those must haves.

Thank you.
