allow free plugin install on individual subsite

I’d like to know if there is a way of allowing individual multisite users to install their own plugins to their subsite only like a regular stand alone wordpress site.

    Hello @nomadone,

    I hope you’re well today and thank you for your question!

    The main idea of Multisite WP network is to get a centrally managed install and the consequence is that by design there’s no way to install plugins on individual sub-sites the same way as it is done on single WP installs.

    Most plugins though (except some that are specifically designed for network use) may be installed via “Network Admin” and then enabled on “per site” basis instead of being “network enabled”. That said, you could just install a bunch of selected plugins through your “Network Admin” dashboard and leave them inactive. Those should be available for activation on individual sub-sites.

    I hope that helps!

    Best regards,
