Plugin management for WordPress Multisite that supports the native plugins page and the WPMU DEV Pro Sites plugin! Used on thousands of multisite installs across the web.
Previously known as WPMU Plugin Manager, it uses a backend options page to adjust plugin permissions for all the sites in your network.
- Select what plugins sites have access to
- Choose plugins to Auto-Activate for all new blogs
- Mass activate/deactivate a plugin on all sites in your network (Very Handy!)
- Assign special plugin access permissions for specific sites in your network
- And as Super Admin, you can override all these to activate specific plugins on the sites you choose!
- Removes the plugin meta row links (Version, Author, Plugin) and any update messages for blog admins
Also, if you use the excellent Pro Sites plugin from WPMU DEV you will be able to charge for access to certain plugins!
