first off i would like to be clear if this even makes sense.
a multisite offering sites, themes and plugins via ProSites.
also i would imagine higher ProSite "levels" typically offering not just plugins of greater value (MarketPress, CoursePress, Chat etc.) but by default would therefore have access to a lot more individual plugins.
so most if not all these plugins being offered via the "Premium Plugins" module would therefore not be network activated.
so what i am trying to get at is plugins would not use server resources unless they are activated.
lets face it, there are people that love to try and break things regardless of if they are trying to be malicious or just plain experimenting.
They may have access to a dozen plugins where they may activate all even though they only require a few.
technically, am i correct in saying the more plugins activated in this environment the much greater the load on the entire network ?
To be honest the idea struck me in thinking of some way to help out with speed after i almost always see and feel slow down in the admin and front end (especially admin) when i install A LOT of plugins in a multisite test site.
i know by its nature multisite uses and requires a lot more resources.
also i was thinking what sense it would make to allow/offer lets say 12 plugins but only allow 6 to be activated simultaneously (just random numbers) - that may not fly well with customers.
But the point is to safeguard the entire network, if not from resources but also reducing the risk of plugin conflicts.
i am honestly not convinced if its a great idea or makes total sense.
Any kind thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated !!!
if its the greatest idea since slice bread then lets please +1
if its total garbage then likewise please let me know why and how.
the more thoughts the better :slight_smile:
