I had to install this to upload the WP Smush it Pro plugin. Now, I want to get rid of it, but there is no delete option in the plugin tab for this plugin.

    Hi Philippe!

    Welcome to WPMU DEV community! I hope you're well today! :slight_smile:

    Please keep in mind that WP Smush Pro can't work without WPMU DEV Dashboard. DEV Dashboard is required and make sure you're logged in to your WPMU DEV account through the dashboard plugin, so we can use our API to connect you to the Smush server.

    WP Smush Pro, Anti-splog, Integrated Video Tutorials, and DEV Dashboard are the only plugins that require our API service. All of our other plugins should be fine as they don't require an active subscription so do not need to contact our API server.

    After you're done bulk smushing, you can remove the dashboard if you like, but it is required for proper smushing.

    And with regards to your issue, make sure to deactivate the plugin first, then you'll be able to see 'Delete' option for that plugin.

    You can also remove the Dashboard plugin folder through FTP.

    Looking forward to your response! :slight_smile:
