I added this to an old ticket but I guess as it was marked resolved you may not have seen it. i am now at the point where I want to share a connections database across more than one site on a WP multisite. Can you provide instructions please

I get notified regardless if the topic was marked as resolved or not. I hadn’t had the opportunity to reply until now. I’ve deleted the other post so there is only one.
Really this should have been set up from the start. It may or may not work. It’ll depend on the db/table origin.
Add the following in the
define( 'CN_MULTISITE_ENABLED', FALSE );
If the entries you’ve added are in the master site tables, you should have access to the Connections entries on all subsites where you activate Connections.09/20/2013 at 11:10 am #269635
Can you guide me where to find and how to edit this file please
Steve09/20/2013 at 11:57 am #269636
Where the file is depends completely on your installation. There is now way for me to tell you where it is at. The only thing I can say is it should be at the root of the WordPress install.09/20/2013 at 12:17 pm #269637
Hi again Steve
The support team at wpengine made that change for me and I can see the Connections directory listings across the multisite. However, I seem to have lost all the logo’s I had added to each entry
Steve09/20/2013 at 1:06 pm #269638
Well, not likely lost. Just not in the path Connections is expecting them. It difficult to know for sure exactly where they are but they will be in a folder named
/connection_images/likely in the content folder of one of you subsites. You need to move the contents of this folder to the path shown on the System widget on the Connections : Dashboard admin page. The path will be the value of the
CN_IMAGE_PATHconstant.09/30/2013 at 2:39 pm #270338
I’m really struggling with this. I have tried adding the images back in in your manage section but some work , some don’t
I don’t know where to find these directories and constants you refer to, so I’m stuck.
The sharing seems to work. I have access to the directory from all sites but I cant sort out these images. The login I created for you before is still valid and I wondered if you could help sort it out for me. Otherwise I don’t know where to turn

You’ll have share the login link and credentials again. I do not really keep those. I did try two sites with the one user/pass I did find but it didn’t work on either site.
CN_IMAGE_PATHconstant can be found on the
Connections : Dashboardadmin page. One of the widgets on that page is the
Systemwidget, that widget will have the
After you have that info. Log in to your site with FTP and move any images from the subsites
connection_imagesfolder to the folder shown as the
CN_IMAGE_PATHconstant. Where exactly the
connection_imagesfolder is on your subsites, I can tell you because that depends on your setup.
How many images do you have, maybe it would just be easier to reupload those that are not working???10/01/2013 at 1:46 pm #270453
I actually deleted all the directory entries, re-imported them and re-loaded all the images. Just finished and it now seems to work OK
Steve10/02/2013 at 11:55 am #270504
That’ll work too. Trying to convert from multisite mode to single site mode on multisite after the fact is a pita. If more demand for this occurs I’ll have to look at ways to make this easier. But if it is setup from the get go … it usually just works.
