Here are a few plugins I’ve got in the WPMU install I’m running. Most, if not all, were a result of my sordid association with WPMU cult leader, Jim Groom. He’s likely posted on each multiple times but it’s hard to find them among all the old cartoons and toy posts- besides I had to make a list to send to our people so I figured I might as well post it. These are all installed in the mu-plugins folder. More Privacy Options This let’s users set up additional options in the privacy page for blog admins. You can make sure the blog is visible only to those logged into your WPMU site, only visible to members of the blog, or only visible to admins.

Just write [hangit]”None to Claim Their Bones: Relics of an Old Brooklyn Graveyard.” New York Times 8 Apr. 1888: 3-4. ProQuest Newspapers.

This is all it takes. Get it on Github here.
