Do single site plugins always work on multisite wordpress?

Do single site plugins always work on multisite wordpress?

I noticed in WPMUDEV plugin list that multisite plugins don’t work on single site wordpress, but it appears that single site plugins will work on multisite wordpress?

Is that always the case?

    Hello Jon,

    Yes, plugins designed only for Multisite installations will work only in this environment. In other way – it’s not so obvious.

    Greatly amount of plugins for single installation will work also on the Multisite. But there are some that will not work (like our User Sync is created only for single installation) or will not work properly in the Multisite environment – some plugins will need only site per site activation because they will not work as Network activated.

    But good thing is, that it is rare issue with plugins not working on multisite.

    Kind regards,

    Kasia
