Support » Networking WordPress » Problems with multisite wordpress 3.x: Network plugins activation

  • Resolved piglab



    I want to share a problem that I had and my solution. Since I upgraded my solo site wordpress to multisite, I have started experience numerous strange problems. For example, I cannot add new links and many of plugins’ settings cannot be updated. Also, some plugins do not work properly.

    I spent several days on this problem. Today, I found the cause of it and its solution. When I upgraded my wordpress to the multisite option, I activated all existing plugins on the Network admin. It was a mistake because as I have learned today, I should have deactivated them first on my original site and then activate them on the Network admin. So, I deactivated all plugins from both the Network admin and my site admin and then re-activated on the Network admin. All plugins started working fine and I’m now able to add new links (and edit the old ones). For some reason, I expected plugins deactivated automatically from the original site, when I activated them on the Network admin. But I was obviously wrong. I wish the WordPress posted this info somewhere….
