WordPress versus WordPress MU
Currently using : WordPress MU 2.7.1
Guys and Gals,
I keep getting yelled at for reviewing WP plugins in regards to how they work with WPMU? Now, many of you will say, well WP is totally a different type than WPMU? Then tell me, what in the world is running the WordPress.com website??? It is WPMU.
Now another argumentation about this is that, WPMU itself says to check each WP plugin to see if it works with the WPMU system.
After a WPMU installation, under Admin Dashboard in Plugins:
at the bottom:
Get More Plugins
You can find additional plugins for your site by using the new Plugin Browser/Installer functionality, Or by browsing the “WordPress Plugin Directory” directly and installing manually.
To manually install a plugin you generally just need to upload the plugin file into your /home/account/public_html/wp-content/plugins directory.
Once a plugin has been installed, you may activate it here.
So, it has the link that points directly to the WordPress.org website???
The WPMU doesn’t have its own plugins section, especially if there are problems with a specific plugin. It does however have a plugins forum area. Which WPMU site admins can talk about enhancing or fixing certain plugins. However, WPMU typically points you right back to WP plugins?
So, are WPMU site users not suppose to be reviewing Plugins or using the plugins on the wordpress.org site? Since WPMU themselves point to most plugins being on wordpress.org?
I realize that not all WP plugins are going to work with WPMU, and that is between WP and WPMU to work that out. But, as a site admin of my own site that is using WPMU, I am trying to figure out which plugins work the best, and WPMU points to wordpress.org being the one to go to for plugins?
So, am I right or wrong?
Which plugins are we WPMU users suppose to use, when WPMU themselves are pointing to the WP plugin repositories???
WP website owners should consider creating a field for each plugin in their repository that states whether or not it will work with WPMU. Rather, then us WMPU users that leave WPMU reviews about each plugin on WP receive nasty responses from other members.
So, is WP not the same organization as WPMU? Are they two separate entities?
Guys and Gals, please realize it is WPMU that is pointing us to use WP plugins, if that is not the case, then please tell us now.
