  2. WP Toolkit default update settings

    I would like to enable all "Security Measures" by default, and enable smart update, and auto update for all new plugins and themes by default. Also I would like to force update security updates by default.

  4. Let wp-cron run every minute by default

    Currently, when enabling 'Take over wp-cron.php' and 'Create a replacement task (...)', the cron job that's created only runs twice an hour. (See screenshot attached)

    This seems wrong; any Wordpress cronjob that needs to run at a higher interval, will fire too late.
    There is no performance benefit to running wp-cron less often, in fact, it might cause performance problems, because late jobs would pile up.

    Can the default wp-cron.php interval be changed to every minute, please?


    One source that offers some more explanation: https://wpengine.com/support/wp-cron-wordpress-scheduling/

    Missed crons and crons that run too frequently can both be resolved by enabling the…

  6. Hide Caching (nginx) option in WP-Toolkit

    The controls in the Tools section of WP-Toolkit should be customizable to allow hiding Caching (nginx) so that customers do not enable it randomly. The ability to enable nginx caching should still be available from Apache & nginx settings.

    Thank you for your idea! We understand that this idea originates from the fact that customers sometimes enable nginx-caching without realizing what this option does to their website. Potentially creating issues with their own website. 


    We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it becomes popular.


    Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

  7. Add Purge Cache button for wordpress instance

    Add a button under each wordpress instance for purging cache.
    Its a simple solution that should be implemented. Can remove a lot of headache for any support team dealing with customers.

    A simple solution that runs with wp cache flush (wp cli), just integrate a button in wp toolkit.

  8. Search/filter for vulnerable plugins/themes in Wordpress Toolkit

    I would like to know if it would be possible to filter in WPTK so that only the sites with Vulnerabilities/updates are shown. Both for Plugins and Themes.
    Searching for Vulnerable or Update does not show any results.

  9. Automatic SmartUpdates in WP Toolkit should ignore failed plugins and themes

    Automatic SmartUpdates in WP Toolkit are rolled back if just one plugin or theme fails to update, leaving every other plugin or theme outdated. Please make it possible to ignore the failed updates and go ahead with automatically updating other plugins and themes.

  11. Ability to create event alerts for site downtime due to quarantine or updates

    Currently, WP toolkit doesn't have a feature to support external event handlers and it doesn't provide such events for Plesk's action logs.

    Enabling this possibility would allow more control of website availability.

  12. Add a way to force sets during custom WP installation

    Add a way to force customers to use our defined plugin sets when doing a custom WordPress installation.

    Currently, there's an option to install no set. It should be possible to hide this from customers, so they have to choose from one of our sets.

  13. panel.ini setting to select 127.0.0.1 or localhost for WPT WordPress installations

    When using CloudLinux's alt-php versions and when using Plesk's php version management facility instead of CloudLinux PHP Selector, the default path to mysql.sock is not set, or in some cases incorrectly set to /tmp/mysql.sock.

    Any php script, including WordPress, that is set to use "localhost" to connect to the database will then fail to connect. This can cause severe problems with the WordPress Toolkit.

    If, instead of localhost, the host address is set to 127.0.0.1, php uses a network connection instead of trying to connect to mysql.sock, and all is well. Naturally this assumes that mysql/mariadb listens on 127.0.0.1 but…

  14. "Search engine indexing" error report in WP ToolKit

    Can you please add an option to turn off error reporting for sites which have "Search engine indexing" turned off?

    I run many websites on subdomains with demo content that I don't want to index.

  15. WooCommerce Staging Process (cloning without overwriting Woocommerce content)

    WooCommerce = at least 1/3 of ALL e-commerce websites use WooCommerce.

    Can Plesk please make a process that works EASY for people to do the following on a WP and WooCommerce site:

    Live site > Clone to Stage site > Copy to Live site

    The issue is customers, orders, and products on the Live site can't be replaced/over-written, etc when you copy back to live site.

    THIS PROCESS WOULD MAKE MONEY for Plesk, as for some reason, it doesn't exist anywhere, that I know of.

    Please implement it :)

    • Uptime (maintenance mode not included in downtime)

  17. make plugin pack installation able to handle dependent plugins

    This feature request originated here: https://talk.plesk.com/threads/plugin-package-cannot-be-installed-premium-plugin-requires-base-plugin.371482/

    The problem is that plugin X needs to be active so plugin Y can be activated. (In my case, it was the AIOS plugin with its premium version, which WP toolkit wasn't able to activate)

    It seems that WP Toolkit tries to activate all plugins at once when installing a plugin pack. An option to tell WP Toolkit to enable each plugin alone in the order they were added to the plugin pack instead of all together would be useful in this case. But there are probably more ways to optimize WP toolkit for…

  18. WordPress Toolkit support for Bedrock-powered WordPress instances

    Bedrock is a modern WordPress stack that implements several improvements related to WordPress setups.

    Better folder structure
    Dependency management with Composer
    Easy WordPress configuration with environment specific files
    Environment variables with Dotenv
    Autoloader for mu-plugins (use regular plugins as mu-plugins)
    Enhanced security (separated web root and secure passwords with wp-password-bcrypt)

    More information on Bedrock can be found here: https://roots.io/bedrock/

    Plesk's WordPress Toolkit cannot currently handle Bedrock-powered WordPress instances.

    Because some of Bedrock improvements are considered to be current best practices and provide safer setups, it would be nice to see support for Bedrock-powered instances in WordPress Toolkit.

  19. wordpress toolkit table prefix mixed case fix/patch

    I'm not sure if it's still the case but the toolkit used to (possibly still does) create table prefixes with mixed case characters (or this is done via the security checkup for existing tables).

    Unix is case sensitive, windows is not.

    MariaDB

    lowercasetablename=0 default for Unix = stored as provided and case-sensitive. $tableprefix = '7a6pcDc' will be stored as 7a6pcDctablename in the DB
    lowercasetablename=1 default on Windows = uppercase changed to lowercase but still case-insensitive $tableprefix = '7a6pcDc' will be stored as 7a6pcdctablename in the DB.

    This is…

  20. Faster deployment of Wordpress sites

    Deployment or cloning of WordPress sites and then generating unique wp-admin and FTP credentials takes too many actions currently.

    Ideal workflow:

    1 - Enter a subdomain name (the only thing to enter) and have all other options prefilled to match the subdomain name (database name/user, FTP user, folder, etc).

    2 - The site is configured automatically, including creating a subdomain, configuring SSL, creating a database/user, wp-admin user & unique password, FTP user & unique password.

    3 - All credentials are displayed on the last step, allowing copy/paste, including wp-admin (user, password), and FTP (server name, port, user name, password).
