Can I use WPMU plugins on a NON-MU WP installation?

Hi there,

did a search but found nothing on this :slight_smile:

I just recently purchased my membership - great site, great plugins, great support.
Now, I want to use some of the plugins that are not directly related to MU-specific issues, on a "regular" (= non-MU) WP installation.

Can I do this?

If so, how will the installation process work? Still put everything into mu-plugins??

Thanks so much,
best regards

    Hiya Robert,

    Glad you're enjoying things so far, and let me officially welcome ya to WPMU DEV! :smiley:

    The answer is that it largely depends on what the plugin is meant to do. For most of the plugins you'll see an 'Information Box' in the sidebar on the plugin's page. It'll tell you which systems it's compatible with (WordPress, WordPress Multisite, BuddyPress). If it lists just WordPress, you're good to go. You'll follow the normal installation instructions for that plugin (could be mu-plugins or regular plugins folder) but it will function just fine for ya.

    If you have any specific questions, don't hesitate to let us know.
