Change WP timezone on many child sites a time


Can I set the timezone for manu child sites a time ?

Maybe with the bulk settings manager ? or another way ?


You could do this with the Code Snippets extension using the following code (adjust to desired zone):
update_option('timezone_string', 'Europe/Paris');

Use the category “Return the info from Child Sites” and always test it on 1 site before you do many.



Thanks a lot, MainWP is awesome !

Just to understand : why should I use “return the info from child sites” ?

Bescause regarding the doc, I was thinking that we are in case 3 or in case 1 no ?

The MainWP Code Snippet Extension allows you to run code in three ways:

1. Have a Code Snippet execute a function on the Child Site

You would use this option to make actual changes to your Child Sites. For example, if you wanted to customize the admin footer across different websites in your network, you would use this option.

2. Have a Code Snippet return information from a Child Site

This option queries the Child Site and returns the information to you. An example would be if you wanted to know the published post count of all of your sites.

3. Have a Code Snippet edit the wp-config.php file on a Child Site

One of the most critical files in your WordPress installation is the wp-config.php file. A Code Snippet in this section allows you to do things such as increase WordPress memory, block external requests, disable WP-Cron, and much more!

I encouter this bug when I select a site on the right : the websites list crashes :flushed:

MainWP Code Snippets Extension bug

You only need to execute the change once. This is a setting in the database (options table). So the description is not entirely accurate. Options 1 and 3 would execute the code everytime the website is loaded.

The screen recording is too small for me to detect what goes wrong, but maybe @bojan will recognize this.


Hi @Webaxis

I cannot reproduce that issue with a website list crash in Code Snippets extension.

It’s hard to see from the recording. Do you simply try to select one of the child sites from the list and the list disappears?
