As a quick intro. I’ve been through a few WP management platforms, from IWP to watchful.net and a few others, and I’ve settled on MainWP for good due to a few reasons: 1) Community and community engagement from the devs 2) Privacry 3) FOSS project.
Although I’ve only been using MainWP a week and have endured a few headaches, I’m definitely settled in for the long haul. This leads us to present post!
So, I was confused by the need to install a bunch of extra stuff on child sites (which in my case is mostly client sites) to get basic functions that IWP and watchful has built-in into the “main plugin”. I’m talking about reporting and logging. I understand more extensive stuff might require a stand-alone plugin/extension, of course.
I know this is not relevant to everyone, but at least a subset of users here try to keep maintenance, logging and security plugins to a minimum, as it can be seen as sloppy and sort of a band-aide approach by clients, and let’s face it, regardless of quality, more code-bases does add complexity and margin for error.
So, there it is. This is my feature submission
