    Hi Tom,

    I want to use GP Premium in a multisite, but I don’t know how to control it. Some questions:

    a) Are there sitewide options to control which addons are available to subsides?
    b) How to deactivate Execute PHP on the complete site. I don’t want my students to do that 😉
    c) Every site get’s the dialog to verify email for auto-updates. where to do that correctly?

    Best wishes for this great piece of web 😉

    Hi Daniel,

    I haven’t work with multi-site a lot yet – I’ll have to play around with it and the add-ons.

    a) I believe once the plugin is network activated, you need to activate it on the individual sites, and then go to “Appearance > GeneratePress” on each site to choose which add-ons should be enabled.

    b) Interesting – can’t think of how to disable this right now – I’ll have to look into a way of doing it.

    c) This is something I may need to change for multi-site so you don’t need to verify it on every site. Will look into this too.


    Just wanted to chime in and say that I would love these features as well! I already have my new sites defaulting to my GP child theme, which is nice, but only the styles hard-coded in my css file are auto-applied to the new sites. (So nothing I change through the GUI editor at the top level applies to new sites.)

    I would be interested in setting up some of my styles (like layout/sizing styles) at the top level, and allowing new sites to set their own colors/typography.

    Anyway, that’s a lot of work and I appreciate the amazing theme you’ve already put together. I just thought some more feedback might be useful.

    Hi Tish, thanks for the feedback!

    That would definitely be ideal – I’ll try and find some time to work on this 🙂


    Hi Tom,

    Is this something that still might get done? If it made it easier, perhaps a first step could be just to check for a bunch of constants before including each add-on? Then developers could set those constants to effectively remove add-ons from the available list?

    I’d be happy to help, if there was a chance of getting something like this into the premium plugin soon.

    In the meantime, I guess I’ll just remove admin menus and customizer sections for safety. That’s just a bit potentially confusing for any client who tries to enable an add-on and can’t understand why its settings are not showing up – so not ideal.

    In the latest version, add-ons in GP Premium can be activated through wp-config.php using constants.

    There’s no current built in way to hide add-ons to site admins (non network admins), but it’s on the road map 🙂


    Good to know 🙂

    Incidentally, I was just checking the licenses of GP and GP Premium, whilst weighing up the possibility of forking the projects to make what I need from them. Thank you both for putting all this love into two awesome products, and for freely licensing all that work. I so much prefer to offer code than requests for other people to write code 🙂

    I actually use Multisite A LOT. My 0,02€:

    , there’s a wpmudev plugin called Cloner that helps you clone websites in your network, there’s another one called New Blog Templates that you should consider too

    Being able to add license info only on network admin would be really nice.

    I played with adding the license key to the wp-config.php file, the trouble is triggering the system to check and activate the license key without a button you press to do so.

    Still playing with that one 🙂
