I added a filter for option_active_plugins to keep most plugins from loading on an admin page. Confirmed to be on the right page and to be returning a properly altered array, but it's having no effect on which plugins are being included on the page.

Tried high numbers for filter priority. No effect. Any ideas?

    Where/how are you adding the filter? Post you code please and state which file the code is in. – s_ha_dum May 10 '13 at 20:20

  • That's exactly what I'm doing. It doesn't work in my own plugin, and it doesn't work in the plugin-organizer plugin either. – beej May 10 '13 at 20:48

    Have you already noticed the "edit" link at the bottom of your question? – kaiser May 10 '13 at 21:05
  • My apologies for the lack of info. Will post an answer when time is up. – beej May 10 '13 at 23:51

OK, duh: I needed to have my plugin in the /mu-plugins dir to make its filter available early enough for function wp_get_active_and_valid_plugins().
