VIP MU plugins

The VIP Platform’s Must Use plugins (VIP MU plugins) are deployed to all VIP Platform WordPress applications. The VIP MU plugins codebase provides WordPress applications with integration to the VIP Platform infrastructure (e.g. cache management), helper functions useful to developers, managed plugin options, and commonly used performance enhancements.

Provisioned plugins

All plugins built into VIP MU plugins are version-managed by VIP.

Plugins that are loaded by VIP MU plugins will appear in the WordPress Admin dashboard’s Plugins screen within the tab labeled “Must-Use“. On WordPress multisite environments, the “Must-Use” tab is only available within the Network Admin Plugins screen for users with a Super Admin role.

Many of the plugins provided by VIP MU plugins are enabled by default. These plugins are enabled because they enhance the performance, security, and manageability of WordPress sites. “Opt in” plugins can be optionally code-enabled by the customer.
