Installation for this plugin is simple!

1. Download the plugin zip file

2. Unpack / extract the zip file to your computer

3. Upload the /wpmudev-updates/ plugin folder to your /plugins/ folder and (Network) Activate it.

4. Alternatively you can also upload the plugin zip file at Plugins -> Add New -> Upload.

Note: If you have an older version of the plugin installed, please delete it (update-notifications.php) from the /mu-plugins/ directory.

After installing, you will be prompted to enter your WPMU DEV API Key, which you can find here. This is necessary to enable automatic updates.

Installing & Updating

You can now install your plugins and themes directly from the admin area of your WordPress website with our latest update.

Admin –> Network Admin (Multisite Install) –> WPMU Dev –> Plugins

WPMUDev - Install Plugins

Clicking on Learn more will give you information on each plugin:

WPMU Dev - Plugin Information

And its the same for themes as well:

Admin –> Network Admin (Multisite Install) –> WPMU Dev –> Themes

WPMUDev - Themes Install

Cool eh!

Hide & Branding

We understand that you might install these on websites where you don’t want any branding  so now you can turn that off in the dashboard settings from the admin:
Admin –> Network Admin (Multisite Install) –> WPMU Dev –> Manage
WPMU Dev - Admin Notices

We have some cool options for you as well!

1. When a user enters an api key it will begin to limit the entire plugin view to just that username. This great when using on client websites.

  • If you have an older version installed then simply visit Manage page and save your settings, this will then restrict it to your username.

2. If you get locked out or need to enable a different user, or want to enable multiple users, you can simply put either of these constants in your wp-config.php file:

  • define('WPMUDEV_LIMIT_TO_USER', '1');  – for one user.
  • define('WPMUDEV_LIMIT_TO_USER', '1, 10'); – for multiple users (they are all user IDs).

Place either of these just above the following line:
/* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

Note: If you include additional users in the above define, they may need to activate the plugin to trigger the new permissions. To do so, they can simply log in, deactivate then immediately reactivate the plugin.

2. If you want to change the position (order) where the Dashboard appears in your menu, then simply use the following in your wp-config.php, replacing the “3″ with a number for the position you desire. Default WP menu positions can be viewed here, under the position argument:

  • Place these just above the following line:
  • /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */
  • define(‘WPMUDEV_MENU_LOCATION’, 3);

3. If you want to totally hide everything so its not visible to anyone then simply use the following in your wp-config.php:

  • Place these just above the following line:
  • /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */
  • define(‘WPMUDEV_HIDE_BRANDING’, true);
Note: Your API key is your own, and should not be shared with your clients, doing so would give them access to your WPMU DEV account.


All of our plugins can be installed on any number of sites you own or develop for a client. We do however have an API limit. But don’t worry, if you have more sites you can simply deactivate one and activate the other, swapping them as often as you need.

  • Single Product members get Installation, Updates & Support for 1 site.
  • Full (Gold) Plan members get Installation, Updates, Support & Unbranded Support Videos on UNLIMITED sites, and can use the Anti-Splog API on 20 sites.
