BulletProof Security
[resolved] Hide BPS from Plugins List on sub-sites (4 posts)

    Hello again :)
    I've read from the F.A.Q. that for the BPS to work properly, it is critical to activate it exclusively on the Primary Site.

    The plugin has to be avoided on Secondary Sites.

    But the only method I know to hide a plugin to Secondary Site, is to network activate the plugin. Therefore activating it for all sites. And that would bring to an illicit configuration of BPS.

    So I thought, in order to avoid an harmful activation on a Secondary Site, would be great to hide BulletProof Security before hand from the list of the available plugins?

    BPS is installed in the Network Admin Dashboard.
    Then go to My Sites >>> Your Primary Site link to go to your actual Primary Network/Multisite Dashboard.
    Then go to the WordPress Plugins page and activate the BPS plugin on your Primary site ONLY.

    Yes, that is a good idea to not have BPS even available to activate on any of the subsites. We will see about adding this additional code.

    If you try and activate the BPS plugin on a subsite you will see this BPS Alert Displayed in your Dashboard.

    BPS Alert
    The BPS plugin should NOT be Activated on Network / Multisite subsites and should ONLY be activated on your Primary site. Deactivate BPS on this subsite.

    I just spoke with the Lead BPS Developer and he has stated that the BPS Alert for subsites is the better method to use at this point. It is possible that BPS will have Network Activation capability in a later version.
