    I go into my wp-admin and view plugins but none of the plugins are there for buddypress…

    domain.com/wp-admin – then I go Plugins and then this comes up…

    I have everything in /www/wp-content/mu-plugins/

    What am I doing wrong?? (BTW Site comes up fine…)

    Plugin Management

    Plugins extend and expand the functionality of WordPress. Once a plugin is installed, you may activate it or deactivate it here.

    You do not appear to have any plugins available at this time.

    If something goes wrong with a plugin and you can’t use WordPress, delete or rename that file in the wp-content/plugins directory and it will be automatically deactivated.

    In mu-plugins, these are plugins that help your WPMU site administration/installation. You won’t find them in the Plugins list. Most likely they’ll have areas in Site Admin.

    The wp-content/plugins are for use by the blogs on your network. Here’s where you’d put wp-stats, akismet, and most of the plugins from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins.

    Here’s how I think of it: if it helps me run WPMU, it goes in mu-plugins. If it helps me or a member blog, it goes in wp-content/plugins.

    Everything in wp-content/plugins shows up in Plugins for activation/deactivation.

    So say you have a plugin that displays a twitter feed given a username. You want ALL profile pages in BuddyPress to automatically show this. I would think this would be a WPMU plugin, but i wanted to confirm. I managed to create additional profile pages in my BP test install (and even additional setting screens) but can’t get plugins to work on the pages I have created. Thinking it might have to do with where the plugin are installed.

    I would think it would be in mu-plugins also, but that doesn’t mean I could get it to show on the profile pages. ;)

    Wouldn’t it be as simple as having the plugin in mu-plugins and then just adding the call to your member theme just like any other theme?
