Help finding docs for Edit Blog in Blogs sub-panel in the Site Admin panel (4 posts)

    I can't seem to find any documentation for each of the entries in the Edit Blog sub-panel (Site Admin->Blogs->Edit a blog).

    There are 88 fields that can be changed in each blog, and I would like to know what they all so! There doesn't seem to be any docs for the Site Admin panel at all, that I can find.

    If there is documentation out there, can somebody point me to it please.

    I'm new to WordPress, so the biggest obstacle in finding info with SEARCH, is using the right terminology or tags. I tried manu variations, but couldn't locate what I was looking for.

    Thanks

    88?

    That's nothing. Install and uninstall a few plugins/themes over the years and the number of useless options grows to the crack of doom.

    Well not doom, dead fields of discarded plugins/theme/functions are harmless. The orphaned options are a reminder of something most plugin/theme authors neglect, a tidy uninstall function.

    Anyway, the fields are simply a shortcut to the wp_(##)_options of each blog that would otherwise require phpmyadmin or a visit to each blog's backend to alter/reset.

    The options near the top are more significant and named appropriately. Some you can change, others can't. Go figure.

    Themes lets you designate themes on a one theme/one blog basis, useful for keeping a theme all to yourself.

    Misc Blog Action is another WPMU specific hook for wpmu specific plugins(ie Premium Blogs).

    Given that a SiteAdmin can login to any blog anyway, most options here can be set by visiting the blog directly.
