Hello all,

In a multisite, the network settings page (/wp-admin/network/settings.php) is quiet long as we can see in wp-ms-network-settings.png and may be difficult to find a setting.

My idea should be to split each section into tabs.

I started to work on a patch (see screenshot bellow) but I figured out that this is not an easy fix at all! We also have to move all the existing hook (for example to allow developers to add their custom settings)… so on one hand we need to address backward compatibility issues, and in the other hand we need to provide an API so developers can create their own tabs.

I'm sorry, but unless the Multisite team is interested to dedicate time to work on this, I'm honestly thinking that "maybelater" or "wontfix" are probably the most realistic resolution for this enhancement proposal :\
