Hey everyone, how are you all?
Not sure if everyone saw it yet, but a couple of days ago, WPMUDEV announced that they will no longer maintain 90% of their plugins, releasing them as free on their Github account.
Among these plugins is Pro Sites, and pretty much all of their multisite-related plugins.
We are already working on a Pro Sites migrator, but now that a large portion of their multisite stack is out there, maybe we can aggregate the most useful into a free add-on for Ultimo. What do you think?
Which WPMUDEV’s multisite plugins would be good candidates in your opinion?
EDIT: Our team went through the Github account and compiled all the multisite-related plugins here since it seems there are no dedicated pages for these plugins on WPMUDEVs site anymore.

Good job on getting the shout out from WPMUDev! Hopefully user adoption, functionality, and long-term viability will increase even more.
I think the support system would be an good addition as an add-on. I’m always concerned with data being sent to third-party to make things easier, but that may lead to sacrificing privacy, reliability, and customization.
I agree that MarketPress is a product in it’s own right, and shouldn’t be developed. Something to maybe look into are the payment gateways within MarketPress. You stated in the past you’re developing a Stripe Connect plugin, which is great! I know MarketPress has PayPal Chained Payments, WePay and a few others. This may shorten future development time if your goal is to develop additional payment add-ons for a multisite where unique payment API keys are generated for the platform, and the multisite owner can take a percentage if they can/want. I have little experience with MarketPress and it’s been a while, so my knowledge may not apply here.3 months, 1 week ago lsaguiarParticipant
we use their support system at ComCart and works perfect! I hope that will be your choice.

Also a fan of Support System. Some others that have been useful:

- multisite content copier
- sitewide privacy options
Autoblog was another powerful plugin that I was using to aggregate blog content from RSS Sources (including my own site) and pushing to all my subsites based on their subscription level. A huge value to customers who are willing to pay for an upgraded subscription in order to get X amount of blog pages created for them each month.3 months ago greggdavisParticipant
The plugins I use on my network (converting to WP Ultimo now!), that aren’t already covered by existing WP Ultimo functionality to my knowledge are:
- Multisite Privacy
- Multisite Theme Manager
- Pretty Plugins
I use these others also, which I believe WP Ultimo already covers:
- Signup Code
- Remove Email Verification
- Set Password
I’m curious whether this one can be incorporated into WP Ultimo, given the server-centric nature of the functionality:
- MultiDB (for very large or growing networks)

FYI – the link to the Google doc Arindo provided doesn’t work for me, I don’t have permission to view it.
However, WPMUDev has this one: https://premium.wpmudev.org/retiring-our-legacy-plugins/

Thanks for the feedback, @greggdavis.
- Multisite Privacy. This is coming in 2.0. I’m not sure if it is exactly the same, but we basically allow the client to make his site private and block front-end access while it is still being built. Search engines are also blocked.
- Multisite Theme Manager & Pretty Plugins: We cover those two with an add-on called Plugin and Theme Manager.
My bad on the file permission. It is now public. The document lists the ones are more or less part of WP Ultimo core or add-ons already as well.

I didn’t see it at first, but Content Monitor would be some very useful code to make sure it integrates well WP-Ultimo. This could prevent suspicious, illicit, illegal, and possible SEO damaging sites/blogs from being created on a network, without automatically banning someone. Could be helpful if WP-Ultimo is used in a marketplace setup where KYC (Know Your Customer) monitoring comes into play.2 months, 3 weeks ago Arindo DuqueKeymaster
So, we finally released the Pro Sites migrator. It migrates settings, API Keys for PayPal and Stripe, coupons, plans, subscriptions, transactions, blog templates, and domain mappings to WP Ultimo. It even deactivates incompatible WPMUDEV plugins for you on the last step.
We tested this extensively and it performing pretty well. Unlike predicted, you can deactivate the migrator after the migration is done.
Clients do not need to re-add credit cards or re-integrate PayPal, it just continues to work and charge them as expected.
We wrote a tutorial explaining how to use the migrator, but it is pretty straight forward: http://help.wpultimo.com/coming-from-wpmu-dev-s-prosites/how-to-migrate-your-network-from-pro-sites-to-wp-ultimo
It is already available on your Network Admin -> WP Ultimo -> Add-ons for install.
It requires WP Ultimo version 1.9.11, which we also released today. WP Ultimo 1.9.11 also adds domain mapping support and auto SSL to WPMUDEV’s new hosting offerings. Feedback here would be greatly appreciated as well.
Let me know what you guys think!
