Multisite / Network Support

NGFB is multisite aware and provides a Network settings page in the Network admin interface. You can install NGFB as a “Must Use” plugin (in the mu-plugins/ folder), Network Activate the plugin, or Activate it on individual blogs (aka sites).

License Management

Pro version licensing can be managed Network-wide, providing a default (or forcing) the Authentication ID for Network blogs, or licenses can be entered individually on each blog’s Add-on Plugins and Pro Licenses settings page.

The default Network blog must be licensed to allow Pro version updates from the Network admin interface. This is a requirement of WordPress not NGFB — WordPress uses the default site ID to manage updates in the network admin interface.

Blog ID 1 is usually the default Network blog, but this can be changed using a few constants in the wp-config.php file. The default constants provided by WordPress during a multisite Network install may look like this (this is only an example – your actual network settings may differ):

To change the Network admin default blog, you must update the BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE and PATH_CURRENT_SITE constants for sub-folder multisites, or BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE and DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE for sub-domain multisites (and SUBDOMAIN_INSTALL would also be true in that case).
