We have a WP Multi-site installation. Because of that, we’ve purchased a Developer License, as your product description says that is what to purchase when using EE with WordPress multi-site. The EE4 plugin is installed and “network activated” at the network (i.e. “top”) level. This has seemingly installed an instance of EE on our “main” site (with the root URL) and each of our sub-sites (with sub-domains), which is exactly what we want, as we plan on having different, independent events on our various sub-sites.
The EE General Setting page associated with our “main” site has a “Support License Key” field where we have inputted one of the 5 license keys from our Developer license, and it seems to have taken that without an issue.
I’ve processed your key reset request which should remove the notice you mentioned.
There’s only 1 instance of Event Espresso’s files installed, but networking activating it allows each site in the network to use as their own.
This is correct, the main site will be the only site that shows the license key field. The reason for this ties into the above, with MultiSite there is only a single instance of a plugin’s files. The license key is used for support and one-click updates, so the only site that needs to update Event Espresso is the main site, therefor no subsites show the key field.
Whilst EE can be used on MultiSite we don’t officially support it and the license system isn’t designed for it. I’ll double-check with our developers to see if there is a way to prevent the notice from being shown on subsites.
