    Well this is an interesting question I have, I have installed some plugins now and all is going good, users have access to their plugins menu to activate/deactivate the plugins.

    The problem is howerver that some plugins I just want enabled when they create their blog and not listed on that page unless one of the site admins (such as me) view it but no the user.

    One example of one of these plugins they should not be able to control is Swith Blog URL, where currently they have to go and actiavte the plugin, then goto the menu to change their URL, I'd much prefer to always have it activated without them having a say in the matter so they just goto the feature in the dashboard and change their blog URL.

    However, some such as Akismet I don't mind them having the option of deactiating it or changing the option. I plan of introducing others that some users may decide they don't want as well.

    EDIT: Or better yet, is their a way to code the activation and deactivation of plugins in my own script, remove the plugins menu and sub in my own plugin script that:

    a) only shows the plugins I want them to control
    b) for certain plugins intergrate with paypal to offer it as a paid upgrade

    a) go into the plugin in question and either comment out or remove the part where it adds it as a menu item. It removes it for site admins too, but you can still get it on the server. ;)

    b) . A paid plugin, worth it.

    "You must have a subscription and be logged in to download files."

    The cheapest subscription is $50 for 1 month. :(

    My fault for not mentioning...I'm broke. But I'll remember that site for when and if I have the money, that looks a bit easier than setting up my own system.

    Well, when you can scrape it up, for the $50, you get all the plugins and stuff they have and support for that month. I've done a load of searching and cobbling things together myself - it's seriously worth it, not just for that, but everything else they offer.

    It'll save you more than $50 worth of lost hours, that's for sure.

    I think I can throw together a simple modification that when they click activate for a paid plugin, I give them an info screen with a paypal button and the last hing I need to get it to work is to figure out coding the activation and deactivation of plugins, I'll see if I can figure it out from the plugins page code.

    And I feel stupid, I just now foudn mu-plugins directory that helps with those plugins I just want for everyone.
