The function get_current_site() that's in my themes' footer.php file doesn't return the 'site name' property as specified in the docs (and expected in the theme). The purpose of the function is to return all details about the parent site on a multi-site setup.

The only return values I am getting are the blog_id and path. eg:

<?php print_r(get_current_site());?>


stdClass Object ( [id] => 1 [domain] => www.mydomain.co.uk [path] => / [blog_id] => 1 )

Try using get_current_site_name() to insure you get the site name so something like this:

echo get_current_site_name(get_current_site());
