Multisite

Multisite is a premium add-on for Better Notifications for WordPress. You can purchase it here.

The Multisite add-on provides new notifications for WordPress Multisite installations. All Multisite notifications need to be created on the primary site on the Multisite network to work correctly.

An update was released alongside the release of this add-on to the free core plugin that provides support for any regular notifications included within the free core BNFW plugin that weren’t working correctly under a multisite installation. As such, you only need to purchase this add-on if you’d like to take advantage of the new notifications that this add-on provides. These are:

New Site Activated or Created – For Network Admin
This notification is sent when a new site is activated by the user or a new site is directly added within the WP Admin by an Administrator. This notification is sent to the network admin.

Due to a a restriction within WordPress, it is not possible to override the subject of this notification. As such, it will always be hardcoded as “New Site Registration: X”, where X is the new site URL. Additionally, there are no shortcodes available to use within this notification in either the subject or the message body due to the same restriction. You can change the text and other content as normal however.

Please Note: In addition to this notification, there is also another notification that is sent to the network admin with a subject of “X New Site Created”. There is no way to either disable or override this email, again, due to a restriction within WordPress.

Licensing Details

This add-on’s licensing works slightly different to that of other BNFW add-ons. The Multisite add-on only requires a license for the primary site on the network. As such, to activate the license and ensure automatic updates for this add-on, please do the following:

  1. Ensure BNFW and this add-on are installed and activated at the network level.
  2. Go to the primary site on the network and go to Notifications > Add-on Licenses.
  3. Add your license key for the Multisite add-on and activate as normal.

The license key field for the Multisite add-on on the Notifications > Add-on Licenses page will not show for any sub-sites on the network.

Naturally, if you run multiple Multisite networks, you’ll need a license for each network that you wish to use this add-on with.

All other BNFW add-ons are licensed normally – you’ll need an active license for each add-on for each sub-site of the network that you wish to use them on.
