Plugin Commander

Plugin Commander is a plugin management plugin for WPMU, released under GPL.
It allow you to do the following things:

  • Mark any plugin in the plugins directory to be automatically activated for new blogs.
  • Mass activate or deactivate a plugin for all existing blogs
  • Choose which plugins users can activate and deactivate through Manage->Plugins, for this to make sense you need to disable the built-in plugins menu (through Site Admin->Options->Menus)
  • Activate and deactivate plugins for specific blogs, even if the blog owner is not allowed to control those plugins.


Download 1.1.1 from here.

Please consider donating.


Extract into mu-plugins (plugin-commander.php should be straight in mu-plugins).

Change log

Plugin Commander 1.1.1 (23/06/2008)

  • Fixed a bug with the translation file registration.
  • Norwegian translation contributed by Rune Gulbrandsoy
  • Spanish translation contributed by Jorge Ferrando
  • For the translation to work, you need to set WPLANG in wp-config.php
  • There seems to be a bug in WPMU 1.3.3 and 1.5.1 that prevents the usage of translations. hopefully it will be resolved in future WPMU versions. as a workaround, edit pc_textdomain and make it look like this:
    function pc_textdomain()
        global $locale;
        $old = $locale;
        $locale = WPLANG;
        load_plugin_textdomain('plugin-commander', 'wp-content/mu-plugins/plugin-commander-i18n');
        $locale = $old;
