Multisite installation

AMP plugin works like any other plugin. You can install the AMP on multisite and perform a network-activate as well.

Reverting to a previous version

We always recommend you to use the latest version of the plugin. However, in some cases, you might have to try or use the older versions of the plugin.

To use a previous version of AMP for WP:

  • Disable and delete the current plugin.
  • Download a previous version of AMP for WP under the Advanced View.
  • Upload the previous version under Plugins > Add New.
  • Activate the previous version of AMPforWP.
