Multisite plugin question/request (4 posts)

    Hi,

    I want to, (eventually), move my site to WordPress, (multisite).
    But, as it is still in beta, I am only really playing with the various options available and making a mental note of the plugins I will need to create so suit my needs.

    But an obvious problem I see with plugins is that they are all available to the users.

    For example I have the plugin, "WordPress Beta Tester", but I do not want that one available to all users.

    I also want to 'force' some plugins on some users, (Akismet for example), I want them on for all users without the option for the users to remove it or change settings for it.

    Is it currently possible to have that option?
    Would it be something worth looking into?

    Regards,

    FFMG

    It is another plugin, but have a look at this:

    I never used it, but maybe it can do what you are looking for.

  3. I want them on for all users without the option for the users to remove it or change settings for it.

    Always on: stick it in the mu-plugins folder. may not work for some plugins.

    For not being able to change settings, you have to change settings on each blog anyway. So, if you want something different than the defaults in the plugin, you'll have to edit the plugin. you can also edit it so the plugin's options page is visible only to you, the super admin.

    Ah, I did not know that, thanks

    Hum, what I was trying to say is that I would like some plugins available to the users, (harmless ones like twitter and google ads), while hiding/controlling others that are more 'super-admin' related.

    Thanks, I'll have a look at it.
