/plugins directory is mapped to
/wp-content/plugins/ ; this directory works similarly to
WP_CONTENT_DIR . '/plugins/' in a self-hosted WordPress installation.
Plugin files and directories can only be added or removed via code commits to GitHub; not from within the WordPress Admin dashboard.
- Third-party plugins should load from the
/pluginsdirectory to allow for better compatibility with VIP security features such as Codebase Manager.
- Custom plugins can be loaded from either the
/pluginsdirectory, or the
/client-mu-pluginsdirectory, depending on the preferred loading behavior.
Plugins can also be code activated to ensure control and consistency across all environments.
