Features of upcoming GD Press Tools Pro 5.0

GD Press Tools Pro 5.0 is coming along nicely, and at this point, all of the plugin features are outlined and already completed or in development. This post lists all the planned features along with plans for GD Security Toolbox Pro plugin.

GD Press Tools Pro 5.0 is created as Network first plugin. It is designed to work with the multisite and normal websites. But, there are some nice additional features that will only work in the multisite mode. Every plugin feature can be network only, individual blog only, both network and individual blog. If you run normal (not multisite version) WordPress, you will have all features. There are some features that are network specific. And finally, there is powerful Overload mode for network setup where you can force some of the individual blog features to all blogs at once. This includes cleanup, tweaks, and few other things. This way you can adjust some tweaks and force them to all sites in the network. So, if you have normal WordPress website, you will have all the features plugins has. In the multisite mode, you have overload mode plus tweaks and cleanup that are relevant only in multisite.

GD Security Toolbox Pro will follow a similar structure. Most of the plugin features will be available to super admins only because it is not a good idea to have many admins messing with the security. Also, many security features in multisite mode can be set globally only (there is only one .htaccess file for all blogs in the network).
