I’m trying to use the bulk settings manager to edit the comments settings pages to stop spam. This is the second key I’ve created but this one doesn’t appear to be working.
The original key would always say “Cannot send datas to child” but the settings would be applied (logged in and checked). This new key doesn’t appear to be working on a test site I’m trying to apply it to. It gives the response “Cannot send datas to child” and when I log into the child site to check there are no settings.
I’m unsure if it’s the size of the settings that are causing the problems as the list of blacklisted words is a very large one
Can you please post the community system report from your MainWP Dashboard for review? The report is located in your Dashboard under Status --> Server, on the top right of the page.
Be sure to use the button like the one below; this button hides all your private information:
Pressing the button auto-copies the report to your clipboard then just paste it in a reply here.
I thought I better add that the majority of sites are on the same server, but not all of them. A few are also on Cloudflare, but only a handful.
Here’s the report.

Hi John, the system report from your dashboard looks fine. However, I am interested to see one thing, can you please check the WP > Settings > MainWP Child > Server Info page on one of the child sites and look for the Server Self-connect check somewhere on about half the page and tell me what result is there?
I checked 3 child sites. 2 on Cloudflare and one not (is on the same server as the dashboard) and it tested ok
Server self connect Response Test O.K.
This is the key I’m using . It’s for comment spam under settings>>discussions

I was able to duplicate the problem with the key that you have sent, however, I don’t see what is wrong with it.
But I tried to create a new key that controls WP > Settings > Discussion settings and it worked for me perfectly.
I would suggest you to try to make a new key and see how it goes.
