It’s somewhat discouraging to STILL see mentions of the “mu-plugins” folder scattered all through the installation instructions for a variety of plugins.

And in the code of custom-anti-spam.php I found this:

$cas_fontpath = “wp-content/mu-plugins/custom-anti-spam/”;

It doesn’t seem reasonable to call a plugin compatible with WP3+ if it has a path like this hard-coded. Does it?

    Hiya rtlcolumbia,

    Some plugins will always use the mu-plugins folder. That’s standard to WordPress and necessary. We’ve moved most everything we can over to the plugins folder to help with automatic upgrades.

    For the anti-spam plugin here it may not be essential. I haven’t looked at that code in awhile. We can take a look at it – but mu-plugins is an important directory for WordPress, you won’t ever see it gone entirely :slight_smile:


Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
