Multi-Site

WordPress multi-site allows you to run multiple independent sites from a single WordPress installation.

WP Statistics does not fully support multi-site at this time but does have some basic options available for multi-site installations.

The key areas of support are currently:

  • Installation
  • Updates
  • Removal
  • Basic network menu

 

Multi-Site Installation

Installing WP Statistics on a multi-site installation is much like on a standalone WordPress setup. Each site will have it’s own database tables and options for WP Statistics which can be configured on the site dashboard.

As long as you install WP Statistics with an account that has rights across the network, the database tables will be automatically created for each site. If your installation account does not have rights to one or more of the child sites, you can manually run the installation routine by logging in with an account that does have rights and re-running the install process manually from the Statistics->Settings menu for the site.

 

Multi-Site Updates

Much like instllation, updates will automatically update any database tables and settings as required as long as the account you are using to upgrade with has rights to the child sites. If your account does not have rights to one or more of the child sites, you can manually run the installation routine by logging in with an account that does have rights and re-running the install process manually from the Statistics->Settings menu for the site.

Removal

Removal is accomplished the same way as for single installs and supports multi-site.

 

Network Menu

The network admin page looks much like the standard WordPress admin page, however it has some significant differences. WP Statistics has a basic implementation of the network menu to allow an administrator some additional functions that may be of use in multi-site installations.

The primary WP Statistics menu in the network admin page looks like this:
The first entry is the overview page, it will be discussed later.

The next set of entries are each of your sites in the network, up to a maximum of 15. Clicking on any of these menu entries will take you to the overview page on the sites admin page.

The final entry is the manual, if it is installed.

 

Network Menu

The Network Menu Overview Page provides a list of all your sites as well as quick links to the vairous WP Statistics pages for each.

This page is not limited to 15 entries and will show you all of your sites no matter how many you have.

Does WP Statistics support multi-site?

WP Statistics doesn’t officially support multi-site however it does have limited functionally associated with it and should function without issue. However no support is provided at this time.

Version 8.8 is the first release that should install, upgrade and remove correctly on mutli-site as well as have some very basic support for the network admin menu. This should not be taken as an indication that WP Statistics fully support for multi-site, but only as a very preliminary first step.
