MainWP Dashboard 4.1.9 Update

MainWP Improvements

The 4.1.9 update is primarily a cosmetic update with a few minor bug fixes. The cosmetic changes are as follows, for a full rundown, check the changelog.

Header Menu:

For all pages with a “Screen Options” choice (the  button), we have added a “Reset Page” button to the bottom left that restores that page to the default setup from install. This reset includes any moved or removed widgets and columns.

Reset Page

We switched the checkboxes from being checked to represent hiding widgets to un-checked representing hiding widgets to match how WordPress wp-admin handles checkmarks.

On the Overview Page (specific) “Screen Options,” we removed the Enable/Disable toggle option for the Screenshots page and moved that to the actual Screenshot page.

All Progress Modals:

Added the progress bar you would see when syncing to all the progress modals for a cleaner, more standardized look.

Manage Sites Page:

Removed most of the default columns for new installs, so the page does not overwhelm users just learning MainWP. You can add each column back through the “Screen Options” () button.

Manage all your WordPress sites with the MainWP Dashboard

WordPress Management for Professionals

Are you ready to go Pro?

All MainWP Pro Extensions are available through one of our convenient bundled packages.

We also added Tooltips to Manage Sites table data so as you mouseover, what the column represents is shown.

We changed the Screenshots preview icon in the Manage Sites table from to to better represent screenshots.

Add New Sites page:

We added a “Verify MainWP Child has been installed” toggle to the Add Site form to remind admins to install and activate the Child plugin before attempting to add the site to their MainWP Dashboards.

We moved the optional settings to the background and can be unfurled by selecting the option.

Add Sites

Manage Groups:

Added information about what a Group is at the top of the page.


Extensions Page:

We moved any messages for the Install and Activate Extensions button to appear above the buttons instead of below.

Extension Page Messages

The “Verify My Login” button now requires a username and password to be entered before it will attempt to verify.

Settings Page:

This update also included renaming some pages in this area, Global Options is now General Settings and Advanced Options is not Advanced Settings. Along with the name changes, we also merged General Settings and the Optimization page.

We copied the Timezone, Time, and Date format options from your WordPress wp-admin General Settings to make it easier and more intuitive to set the date and time format the way you want it.

Once again for the full changelog visit and as always, I want to thank you for your continued support of MainWP.

  1. I like that you created the ability to show/hide columns in the Sites page, however, it does not really solve an age-old problem of wanting to have all columns and not being able to tell which site is which when you pan right.
    Would be nice to “lock” the first column so that the site name is always visible.
    Another nice addition would be to allow one to display columns in the order the user wishes.
