Does Clef’s WordPress plugin support multisite networks?

Yes, Clef’s WordPress plugin is multisite network compatible. Also, note that single sign on works the same way with signing into network sites as it does with signing into multiple stand-alone WordPress sites.

Are there any additional configuration requirements for multisite networks?

It depends. WordPress offers three types of multisite networks:

  1. a subdirectory network, where each site has its own folder below the root of the main site’s URL (example.com/site1, example.com/site2),
  2. a subdomain network, where each site has its own subdomain on the main site’s URL (site1.example.com, site2.example.com),
  3. or a full domain network, where each site has its own domain name (site1.com, site2.com).

If you have a subdirectory network (type 1), then no additional configuration is required.

However, if you have a subdomain or full domain network (types 2 or 3), then you must complete the following extra steps for Clef logins to work on your network.
