How do I use the mu-plugins folder? I moved two plugins to test the process but when I did, they were deactivated and not visible in the dashboard menu items.
I read the mu-plugins folder is for plugins that you do not want deactivated or modified by anyone on the multisite. But I, as super-admin need access. I like that they are not an item in the dashboard menu for subsites so that is not a problem.
I also read that I may have to hack the plugin a bit to make it mu-plugin ready since most are written for wp-content/plugins. But then each time they are updated, I’ll have to go back and recode again. Don’t want to add that task to my days work, it could be daunting.
I’m using ProSites and have these plugins set to “Anyone” but some are ones that I don’t want there to be a menu item at all, I want it to be global. Should I set the setting to “None” instead? Will the plugins be available to me and not to the rest of the users. That way I could leave them in the plugins folder and not need to hack the code to make mu-plugins work. Does this sound correct? I got a little confused reading bc some of the posts were older before changes were made but I don’t know what does or does not apply.
Thanks for your help – Jan ?
