Plugin Commander



This is the same plugin previously available at, which has been used reliably with wordpress multi-site networks for many years.

Plugin Commander is a plugin management plugin for multi-site mode, which allows further control on network-activated plugins.

It allow you to do the following things:

  • Mark any plugin in the plugins directory to be automatically activated for new blogs.
  • Mass activate or deactivate a plugin for all existing blogs
  • Choose which plugins users can activate and deactivate through Manage->Plugins, for this to make sense you need to disable the built-in plugins menu (through Site Admin->Options->Menus)
  • Activate and deactivate plugins for specific blogs, even if the blog owner is not allowed to control those plugins.
