[resolved] how to activate plugin editing (4 posts)

    Howdy folks,

    I'm making a theme for wordpress. First I used the german 2.3.3 version.

    I also need to allow some settings für this theme so i made a plugin file corresponding with the theme, where the admin may edit some settings via the plugin editor, which was available in the 2.3.3.

    Now I also installed the multiuser WordPress version 1.3.3 to make the theme MU compatible but realized, that the button "Plugin Editor" is not there. I couldn't find an option to activate the editor, although the file wp-admin/plugin-editor.php is available even in the MU package.

    Does anybody know how to activate plugin editing here?

    BTW: Is it possible to make a backend for any plugin as we know it from Joomla etc.?

    Don't know, but maybe it is as simple as changing permissions for the plugin folder?

    you'd be better off asking on the specific MU forums.

    I'm not an MU user, but I don't think that the individual users have the ability to upload plugins, it is just the administrator that can do that. I believe the plugins are actually shared by all users, so allowing them to be edited may not be possible.

    I could be wrong of course...

    Hi again,

    MU forums... brilliant idea... should have been mine some hours ago...

    Well file permissions aren't the problem for I'm on a windows platform at the moment.

    And for now there is only the admin so I think it has nothing to do with user permissions.

    Well, I'm off for the MU forums.

    Thanks and cya,
