Plugin Release: Default Blog Options

  • Sven Lehnert


    I couldn’t find a solution for this. so I developed this Plugin. If there is already a better way to do it, please let me know!

    The plugin gives you the possibility to copy default blog options into new blogs automatically.

    It uses one mu blog as a default blog.

    All options you select from the default blog will be used for new blogs on a wpmu installation.

    After a new blog is created, the first time the dashboard is loaded, the options from the default blog will be copied into the new blog option table.

    This is interesting in many situations on a WPMU installation.

    If you want to automatically install some plugins with every new blog, there is already a plugin for free, look here

    With wpmu-plugin-manager you can have control over the plugins, but not over the setup of the plugins.

    So you need to configure all the options and settings every time a blog is created.

    To get rid of this nasty work, I developed this plugin.

    How it works:

    Just create a blog as default blog.

    Install all the plugins on this default blog you like to run on everey new blog.

    After you made all the needed configuration to your plugins and they work as they should work on every new blog, your work for this blog is done.

    Now all you need to do is, go to the main blog to Admin/default-blog-options.

    First you have to enter the blog ID of your default blog.

    When done, you will be able to select the options you’d like to have in every new blog.

    Once you have all the options selected and saved, you are finished.

    Every time a blog is created, the blogoptions are copied from the default blog like you selected before.

    Today I’ve made some important updates:

    – Categories can be copied now.

    – Post an page meta where copied now.

    – Parent pages where set correct.

    – Default blog couldn’t be set after setting main blog to defaul blog. Now it works.

    – Tabs where shown now. CSS and JS wasn’t linked correctly.

    Just download Version 0.14 beta and get your update.

    Happy testing! ;-)



    Nice, thanks. Will have a look — the previous version was causing some issues for me (which I have since forgotten). Will report back if I find any problems with the new one…



    Hi Sven,

    does this work on Group-Blogs as well ?

    I mean with the Group-Blog-Plugin ?

    Many thanks,

    Sven Lehnert


    mm, I do not see a reason why not.
