    FYI. All plugins get loaded every time someone requests a web page--even if the plugin is not activated.
    Not really all function call, most plugin in don't call when deactivate, i have nearly 600 + member in my wpms setup now, most plugin is optional for member so they can use the features when they needed .....

    Just about anything you can put in a plugin you can embed in the functions.php file and some other theme files and it will run more efficiently.
    would that cost extra load with large function.php ? and how about theme functions.php ? for me i think plugin is better due to frequence update from wp it self, if something go wrong, i can disable or remove the plugin, else i have to manually remove from core file one by one ....

    Not sure why he doesn't embed directly into the code unless its to help him reuse across multiple sites...but Sonny definitely deals with large-extremely large databases for his work.
    yup .... i leave it for user to activate those plugin, basically my plugin is Product display, custom form, slider, teaser, social login, nearly 70% of it is for user experience or design purpose ......
    For network admin : i use Prosite (membership), Domain mapping (sunrise.php), custom admin bar, remove admin widget, multidb, Smart DB cleaner and few more custom plugin (is nearly 20 plugin on my main site).

    abt large db, i use another plugin call MultiDB table (actually DB is the one causing more trouble) . . ..

    I user external forum and Individual DB for live chat ...

    Serious i don't recall any plugin cause resource issue (i set wp memory limit at 256mb) ..... any way to find out ? as i'm not coder or experience programmer, i just add features as user request from time to time, still long journey for me ...

    Some ppl suggest me individual installation, but update will be huge problem for me

    What I am doing with my own server is to use an alias to map any request for a blog page to the same script location. And in wp-config.php I have some PHP code to select the database tables for the particular site based on the host name (e.g.

    Here is the code:
    PHP Code:
    /** * WordPress Database Table prefix. * * You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique * prefix. Only numbers, letters, and underscores please! */$table_prefix  str_replace('.''_'$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']) . '_';$table_prefix  str_replace('-''_'$table_prefix);$table_prefix  str_replace('www_'''$table_prefix); 
    So it is easy to update plugins for all the blogs since only one copy of the plugin code exists.

    If you need to FTP or login to multiple blogs to update plugins and the core code, it must be a nightmare to admin.
