Add functions to be used in your install
- The function
get_blog_list()is currently deprecated in the WP Core, but currently usable. The plugin checks this and gets an alternative in
- If you will develop with the alternative to this function from my source, then use the method
Multisite_Core. My source also use caching with the Transient API. More about the function in
- If you use WordPress version 3.7 and higher, then check the function
wp_get_sites(), the new alternative function inside the core to get all sides inside the network. The function accepts a array with arguments, see the description.
- But if you use WordPress 4.6 and higher then that new alternative 😉 –
get_sites()– is the current function to get all sites in the network. The helper method of this plugin
Multisite_Core::get_blog_list()or the function
get_blog_list()have all checks included.
- The function
