How to add a wordpress plugin

    I’m trying to add wp-classifieds to my site. I only want it to show up as a link (tab) off the front page (which it is doing successfully). However, it also shows up as a plugin option for user blogs which I don’t want it to do. I have installed it in the plugins directory of my wpmu. Also, I cannot add ads as it thinks I’m not logged in or registered. Logging in takes me to the backend. If I click “visit site” it still thinks I’m not logged in. I’m not a programmer, but would like to know how involved it might be to adapt this to buddypress. Thanks in advance for any direction.

    It’s quite likely it just has issues with WPMU, not buddypress. Some plugins do not work well with it. I’d test it on a vaniall install of WPMU first.

    She meant vanilla install :D

    Thanks. I did post on the creator’s site as well. I’m sure it will probably take some tweaking for buddypress.

    If you want the plugin to work only for you main site blog, install it in the wp-content/plugins/ dir. If you have installed it in the wp-content/mu-plugins/ then it will be visible for all blogs and potentially not work correctly.

    Yes, I did install it in the wp-content/plugins directory. It still shows up as an option for my one test user blog.

    In your test user blog, is it just in the plugins list and needs to be activated or is it already active and shows the plugin admin menu?

    You can disable Plugins in the /plugins/ dir to show up for your users under Site Options, at the bottom.

    You can manually activate plugins for user blogs later.

    There is a plugin (Plugin Commander) that allows you to control all the plugins in your /plugins/ dir.
