  1. WordPress plugin restoration point

    Would be great to have WordPress plugins to be able to have restoration points on a plugin upgrade basis and not only for WordPress major upgrades.

    This way, WordPress plugins can be managed individually with more control over them.

  2. Wordpress Toolkit favoritism and filtering

    Currently the Wordpress Toolkit interface is a bit messy with all the Wordpress instances of you and your customers.
    It would be great if there would be the possibility so that you can mark and filter for certain Wordpress instances. Marking with stars could make it possible that the most important Wordpress instances always appear on the top and can be checked for updates and security issues very quickly.

  3. Wordpress Toolkit - URL switch (main URL <=> preview URL)

    Hello,

    I would like to suggest something which could be VERY helpfull to customers which are moving their Wordpress instances between servers. Lets say you have domain.com on Server1. Then you are moving it to Server2 with Plesk and Wordpress Toolkit but domain.com is still pointing to Server1. Issue with Wordpress is that if you don't use main URL then all media files (css, images etc) are not being loaded correctly and customer can't be sure if everything will work correctly when he switch DNS settings for domain.com from Server1 to Server2.

    My suggestion is that it would be great…

  4. Option to disable wp-cron and set up crontab

    Add an option to WordPress Toolkit to disable wp-cron.php execution and optionally create a real cron job.
    You would have to add:
    define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true);
    to wp-config.php and than give the admin a choice to set up a cron job with custom times (e.g. every 10Min or 6h).

    See: https://www.siteground.com/tutorials/wordpress/real-cron-job/

  5. Update or Status notifications from the WP-Toolkit by E-Mail

    In the Plesk WordPress Toolkit there is so far no possibility to switch on a notification if something changes in the status of a page. e.g. SSL / security settings or the latter and most interesting updates! For WordPress there are several plugins that take over the update notification function, but they don't always work. But since the WordPress toolkit has the function, it would be great if you could turn on an e-mail notification!

  7. Ability to add sets to existing WordPress instance via Toolkit

    It would be great to have the ability to add sets to existing WordPress instance via Toolkit. On most occasions when we place an existing WordPress site under management have have a pre defined set of plugins we install. These need to be installed one at a time or via script. A number of developers have also expressed ability to install their own sets to an existing WordPress instance.

  9. WordPress plugins status for multisite instances

    Please add possibility to manage plugins of multisite instances from WordPress toolkit.

    Currently, the status of WordPress plugins for the main website is always showed as disabled despite the fact that in WordPress nnetwork they are enabled.
    Thus managing them from Plesk directly is impossible.

  10. Add an option to unlink a site from WordPress Toolkit list.

    Hi. I have about 50 sites on my Plesk server. Some are Wordpress sites developed outside this server and uploaded after development ended. Once I scan the server, all Wordpress sites are added to the WordPress Toolkit list.
    The problem is not all customers are paying for regular bases maintenance so I don't want their website to be on my WordPress Toolkit list.
    Now I can't unlink any of the sites in the list.

    You can unlink individual instances, but they will be added back when WPT performs its daily automatic scan, so it’s not a fitting solution for you.

    We are planning to add the ability to permanently detach instances from WPT. Please continue voting for this feature to help us prioritize it accordingly.

    —AK

  11. Post-update hooks in WordPress Toolkit

    Add post-update hooks in WordPress Toolkit, which can be used to automate the process of committing to Git (e.g. WordPress core and plugin updates that are automatically installed by WordPress Toolkit).

    Use case:

    Be able to respond to the event and write a program to do things like: a) commit the changes to the local git repository and push them to origin, b) trigger an alert in the monitoring system

  14. Search & Replace for Wordpress websites

    This is highly desirable and basic feature.
    When ever user enters "Hosting Settings" and changes the domain, Plesk will detect if a wordpress website is installed, if this domain has wordpress installed - a pop up will show up asking "Would you like to run Search and Replace in the database for the new domain?"

    User will thick V and confirm.
    Then a new pop up will show up showing:

    1. Creating restore point
    2. Running search and replace.

    This feature will save a lot of Hosts the problem with customers / developers changing the domain and not figuring up…

  15. Enable "Compatible With" field in Worpress Theme and Plugin

    This is an important update without which you can not guarantee the installation of themes and plugins in compatible versions, causing rework.
    Each version of a plugin or theme is compatible with a range of versions of Wordpress and other plugins that are used together to provide the features declared by the developer of a given plugin or theme.
    At a first moment you can add the fields below in the "Upload Pugin" or "Upload Theme" screen:
    Wordpress Minimum Version
    Wordpress Maximum Version
    These values can be used in the "Install Wordpress" screen to validate the versions being used in…

  16. WHMCS module for WordPress Toolkit

    Is it possible to have an WHMCS module created exclusively for WordPress Toolkit, in order to allow clients to use it's options from within WHMCS's client areas?

    Basically have clients don't leave WHMCS client areas and perform some actions from within their WHMCS client account (add new site if set multiple WordPress installs in hosting package, backup and restore, install let's encrypt ssl, activate/deactivate nginx, remove site, creati staging site etc...).

  19. WordPress Toolkit - Plugins/Themes view - Show only items which have update available, hide already updated

    Going to WordPress toolkit's Plugins view I get a listing of over 3000 plugins. It is quite hard to pick one-by-one the plugins that I choose to upgrade. It would be great to have a "filter" on that page, that I can only show the plugins that have updates available, hiding already updated plugins

  20. Ability to specify what WordPress sets are available for customers in Service plan

    For now, all the existing at "WordPress > Sets" sets are available for customers when they install WordPress.
    The idea is to limit available sets in service plan, like available applications in "Applications" tab.
