Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that often come up during support requests.

Can I use WP Ultimo to limit which Plugins and Themes users can use?

Yes. With WP Ultimo you can select which plugins and themes are available to each plan on your network.

Can I use WP Ultimo to limit the amount of posts a user can create on his/her site?

Yes. With WP Ultimo you can establish post quotas to every available post type on your network. You can also limit the number of users the admin can invite, the amount of disk space and much more.

Does WP Ultimo support Site Templates?

Yes. With WP Ultimo you can create as many Site Templates as you want. Site Templates are not themes, they are normal sites on your network. You can activate plugins, themes, customize that Site Template in any way you want. If a user selects that template, his or her site will be created as a copy of that template, with all the customizations in place.

You can also set a particular template to a plan. By doing that, every user that signs up on that plan will have his or her site created as a duplicate of that Site Template.

Does WP Ultimo integrate with WooCommerce?

Yes and no.

If you want your network users to have WooCommerce available for them, allowing them to setup stores, that is possible using WP Ultimo. You can even limit the number of products your clients will be able to create on each plan tier.

In terms of subscription payments for WP Ultimo, we currently do not support integration with WooCommerce. That means that WP Ultimo does not have an option to allow your clients to pay for their subscription using your WooCommerce install in your main site. We are working on that for our next releases since it greatly expands the number of gateways WP Ultimo would support.

Is there a way to migrate subscriptions from WPMUDEV Pro Sites?

Currently, no. We are working on a free migrator add-on, though.

Why is the “Allowed Plugins” tab empty on my Plan Edit Page?

WP Ultimo only lets you allow or deny access to plugins not network-activated on your network. When a plugin is network-activated, by its very nature, it will be loaded by default on every site of your network.

If you are not seeing any plugins listed on the “Allowed Plugins” tab, check if the desired plugin is network-active or not.

Can I use my own Pricing Table design?

Yes. Since version 1.4.0, WP Ultimo supports template overrides. For more information, visit this Article.
