Beyond Multisite is a premium WordPress plugin that helps the super administrators of a WordPress multisite to manage their network of sites. It gives them more control, more information, and more protection against spam. It also helps them clean the network and reduce the database size by deleting unwanted comments, revisions, and sites.
Beyond Multisite can list the sites, that have activated a plugin or a theme. This is very useful if you plan to delete a plugin for example, but you do not know if it is used by any sites.
It fights spam thanks to a customizable captcha for all WordPress forms, and an option to ban the last used IP address of a given user. Recovering from spam attacks is also easier thanks to the feature to bulk delete large amounts of pending comments with links in them.
The features of the plugin are grouped in separate modules, which can be turned off and on. To see all the modules along with their features, see further below.
Beyond Multisite is fully translatable with a program like Poedit and the provided .pot file. Thanks to the smart processing algorithm, the plugin works great with networks with a large amount of sites.
The required WordPress version is at least 4.6, and also multisite has to be enabled. It can only be network activated.
There is a comprehensive documentation included, along with a shorter quick-start guide. The documentation is also available online.
Purchasing the plugin is done only once, there are no monthly or yearly fees required to use it or to get updates. All new versions released in the future are free for all customers.
