Does Cusmin support WordPress multi-site/network environments?

Cusmin currently does NOT support WordPress multi-site/network environments. It can be installed on a network but it will NOT work. We are planning to support this in future, but at this point it is not in our high priority list.

If you would like to see this feature sooner than later, please LET US KNOW that you are interested. Please also provide some of the following information that would help us to understand better your needs:

  1. Do you use sub-domains or sub-folders for MS sites?
  2. How many sites are you planning to support? (a rough number 1-10, 10+, 100+, 1000+)
  3. Who creates sites, administrator by request or customer/automated script?
  4. Do you plan to have multiple MS instances?
  5. What type of business do you have and how it relates to your customers?

How to get latest Cusmin version?

First, you need to install any Cusmin package to your WordPress site. You get an email with the instructions and Download button when you buy a Cusmin package. After installing the plugin, go to Plugins page and check for plugin's updates, like you do with any other plugin.

How does licensing work?

Cusmin is licensed on a yearly basis. It includes 1 year of Cusmin service access, Cusmin support and updates. When your license expires, all applied settings on your sites will still be preserved, and you can keep using your sites as usual. If you want to make additional changes to the Cusmin settings, have access to Cusmin support and keep Cusmin up-to-date with the latest WordPress releases, you will need to renew your license.

Why licensing works on a yearly basis?

Cusmin contains a lot of features that could be separate plugins themselves. With such a huge complexity, comes a great responsibility to make all features work with the latest WordPress updates and compatible with the most popular WordPress plugins and themes all the time.

This requires a huge effort on our side, but at the end of the day, you will have a reliable plugin that is always up-to-date with the latest changes in WordPress and it's related products.

However, we still give you an opportunity to keep all of your settings and customizations even when licensing period ends and renew the license only when you need, if this is a more convenient way for you.

How many sites Cusmin supports?

We have different packages that support different number of sites. The term "site" is actually a unique domain where your site is installed. If your package gives you 5 sites allowance, you can install the plugin on 5 different domains.

Can I use Cusmin on a sub-domain?

Yes. You can even install Cusmin on multiple sub-domains with just one site license. Cusmin sites are licensed per-domain, so you can install Cusmin on your root domain and any of your sub-domains, as well. The only requirement is that all of your sites are on the same domain.

If you want to install Cusmin on additional domain, you would need a Cusmin license that supports multiple sites.

Can I test Cusmin on my DEV environment before launching to production?

Basically, if you want to install it on your dev environment to test it first, you would need a license that supports multiple sites. However, you have a few alternative options:

  1. Use sub-domains: Since Cusmin is licensed per-domain, not per-sub-domain, you can install it on a multiple sub-domains on your main domain with a single site license. That means that you can create your site for testing e.g. test.example.com or dev.example.com while you still keep your main domain example.com for production.
  2. Set your domain in hosts file: Configure your local environment to use your production domain in hosts file on your machine. When you navigate to your production domain in browser e.g. example.com, the site from your local environment will be loaded instead of production site.
  3. Contact us: If you don't have any other options to test your site, you can install it on your test domain and contact us once you want to migrate your site from the test environment to your production environment, and we will do this for you.
