Ensure that plugin(s) reamins active

I overlook about 40 sites. I want to set up an alert if someone turns off important plugins like WordFence. Is such a thing possible?

Hi @socquestions,

Here is something you can use to make sure that noone can disable the plugin:

add_filter( 'plugin_action_links', 'disable_plugin_deactivation', 10, 4 );
function disable_plugin_deactivation( $actions, $plugin_file, $plugin_data, $context ) {
    if ( array_key_exists( 'deactivate', $actions ) && in_array( $plugin_file, array(
    ) ) )
    unset( $actions['deactivate'] );
    return $actions;

This will simply remove the Deactivate action for the plugin on the Plugins > Installed Plugins page.

You can use the MainWP Code Snippets Extension to apply this to all your child sites.

OK so using this plug-in is like running a must-use plug-in on each of the child sites? Thank you this gives me an option to explore.

It’s like you would add the code snippet in functions.php file in each child site.
