I'm trying to install plugins in my wordpress subsites instead of network activate that plugin. But i'm not seeing any "add new" link in my subsite plugin area. How to install plugins in my individual sites. Am i missing something?. Thanks

  1. Install plugin in networ admin as usual for multisite.

  2. Do not activate plugin for whole network.

  3. Go to admin of individual site and enable plugin there for that site alone.
