Support » Fixing WordPress » Sharing Plugin Folder Between Two or More Blogs

  • Is it possible to centralize a single plugin folder that multiple blogs can use to keep from having to update each blog over and over again.

    With the number of blogs and plugins that I have implemented, it’s almost impossible for me not to spend time every day doing some sort of upgrading.

    Just about as bad as iPhone applications.

  • Use WordPress Multi-User – upload themes once in themes folder and upload/upgrade plugins once in regular or mu plugins folders? Cheers.

    Never tried myself, and not sure if it’s safe to share the directory but I would try either

    1. create a symbolic link to another wp’s plugins directory.
    2. or define plugins directory in wp-config.php:

    define( 'WP_PLUGIN_DIR', '/path/to/wp-content/plugins' );
    define( 'WP_PLUGIN_URL', 'http://anotherblog.com/wp-content/plugins' );

    Ah, second thought. Method #2 wouldn’t work for many plugins. Don’t use.
