mu-plugins bug or expected behaviour? (4 posts)

    Thought this was interesting...

    I put dropped the whole eventcalendar3 folder into the plugins directory, and with Site Admin->Options->Plugins Enabled, I am able to Activate and Deactivate the plugin individually as required on each blog.

    Now I understand that if you put a plugin in the mu-plugins directory, it will auto-activate and you will not see the PLUGINS menu appear on the admin screen. BUT... if you drop the whole eventcalendar3 folder into the mu-plugins directory, it does not recognize the plugin at all. You need to take everything out of the eventcalendar3 folder, and put it directly into the mu-plugins directory, and then it will work.

    The only problem with this, is that if you need to remove a plugin, you now have your mu-plugins directory full of a bunch of files, and you don't know which ones go with each plugin.

    This is standard behaviour. You can simply get past it by leaving it in the folder and just adding a dummy php file to the mu-plugin folder with something like

    That is correct behavior. The mu-plugins directory does not recognize directories. You can still keep it in a directory, but you have to put a file in the main mu-plugins directory to include the main plugin file inside of a directory.

    That was too easy!!! I'll try for a harder question next time.
