Does it work with WordPress Multisite?

Yes! In a multisite install, User Admin Simplifier works as follows:

  • plugin works on a per site/user basis
  • logging into dashboard for a specific site and visiting the plugin admin only shows the users with access to that site
  • restricting menus for users works as expected and disables menus for user on that site only
  • disabling menus for a user only affects current site. user's menus remain unaffected in other sites
