The MainWP Child update to 4.1.8 consists of mostly bug fixes and a redesign of a notice for a rundown of those changes, check the changelog.

Dashboard Visual Changes

Manage Sites

We removed the Screenshot view and made it into an Experimental Grid view for the Manage Sites page. This gives you two screen views from your Screen Options button, Table and Grid, and the default is your traditional table view.

Grid Options


Sites View Mode is an experimental feature.
In the Grid mode, sites options are limited in comparison to the Table mode.
Grid mode queries servers to capture a screenshot of your Site the same way comments show you a preview of URLs.

Grid View

Groups Page

We redesigned the Groups page from bare metal, and it is now more user-friendly and more efficient since the Dashboard no longer needs to render the sites list for each group.

MainWP Groups


We removed the option to switch sides of the Sidebar from directly in the Sidebar modal and into the Screen Options where it belongs for design consistency.
