Here in DO, everything is self managed, so if there is any specific feature the plug in is talking about, it's you who has to turn that on..

Usually it's to do with certain php, file permission or such settings with these plug ins.

Since its an application related issue, it would better to seek advice from the developer of that plug in or in WordPress forum for guidance towards the that specific issue.

I remember similar issues with my set up also when I moved here, WordPress forum did provide good guidance towards the same, and in my case, as I wrote, it was with file / directory permission issues..
