MainWP 3.1 Adds WP-CLI Integration

The release of MainWP 3.1, for both the Dashboard and Child plugins, includes 2 major upgrades. The all new basic integration with WP-CLI and better handling of Extensions when adding a new site to your Dashboard.

Check the full Changelogs:

MainWP Dashboard
MainWP Child


If you haven’t heard of WP-CLI it’s a “set of command-line tools for managing WordPress installations. You can update plugins, set up multisite installs and much more, without using a web browser.

The MainWP integration will Sync your sites and allow you update all your plugins and themes from the command line instead of using your browser. This help doc will go over all the MainWP WP-CLI Commands.

New Sites + Extensions

The other new feature really we’re really excited about is that now when you add a new site the new site page will check all your available Extensions and ask if you want to install a required plugin on that new child site or apply that Extensions default settings.

Gone are the days when you needed to remember to add a required plugin or set the child site up on an Extension.

As always we love to hear your thoughts so please leave them below.
