WP Clips Multisite adds Clips support for WordPress multisite environments. The core Clip is enabled across the network, while a custom Clip is assigned to each site, allowing for network-wide and/or site-specific customization.

WP Clips Multisite is installed similarly to the single-site plugin. Visit Installing WP Clips and simply follow the instructions provided.
Note: The plugin must be network-activated.
Upgrading from single site
If upgrading from a single-site environment where WP Clips is already installed, deactivate the plugin and complete the multisite changes before upgrading to WP Clips Multisite.
In this event, the network is assigned the core Clip (renamed /clip_0/) and a new precoded folder (/precoded_0/). The custom Clip and precoded folders are assigned to the primary site and renamed /clip_1/ and /precoded_1/ respectively. The number represents the blog ID for the primary site (1).
A new custom Clip and precoded directory are automatically generated from the template when a new site is added to the network. The appended number reflects the site’s blog ID. For example, if the blog ID is 5, the custom Clip folder will be named /clip_5/ and the precoded folder will be /precoded_5/.
Using WP Clips Multisite
The plugin is used similarly to WP Clips. However, the core Clip and network-installed precoded Clips are enabled on both the network and the network’s individual sites. Whereas a site’s custom and precoded Clips are enabled only on the associated site.
Note: When viewing ‘WP Clips Multisite Control’ from an individual site’s admin area, the network’s Clips will be visible but not changeable.
Note: Individual site customizations will override customizations made to the network.
Note: The same Precoded Clip cannot be active on both the network and an individual site. In this case, the individual site’s duplicate will be forced to ‘unclip’.
Customizing for Multisite
To minimize the risk of code conflicts or issues arising from alternative active themes on different sites, it is strongly recommended to add all theme-related custom code to a site’s custom Clip rather than the network’s core. Use the core Clip specifically for WordPress core network functions.
WP Clips Multisite is updated in the same way as the single-site plugins. Visit Updating or Upgrading and simply follow the instructions provided.
Note: Plugin updates via ‘WP Clips Multisite Control’ must be performed via the primary site and not the network or secondary sites.
Reverting to Single-Site
If reverting back to a single-site environment, simply install WP Clips via the primary site’s ‘WP Clips Multisite Control’ prior to proceeding.
