The Unique Security ID will need to match when being added to the Main Dashboard. This is additional security and should not be needed in most situations.
On the WordPress site that you want to connect to your MainWP Dashboard:
- Go to the WP > Settings > MainWP Child > Settings page
- Select the Require Unique Security ID option
- Click the Save Changes button
Unique Security ID will be generated for the child site and you will be required to add it to the proper field when you proceed with adding this site to your MainWP Dashboard.
Word from the Author
We have strived from the beginning of development to make everything as user-friendly as possible and we found requiring you to enter a unique ID a wasted step for users when we can programmatically establish the secured and locked connection without additional user input.
We believe if someone is able to get into your Child sites wp-admin area to disable and re-enable the MainWP Child Plugin in order to break your Main Dashboards lock on it then you probably have bigger security problems than a unique ID is going to solve.
However, we always try listen to our users and we know some of you do not feel secure without having some kind of unique security ID for each of child sites so we added one for you in Main Version 0.1.0 and Child Versions 0.1 and above.
