  3. Provide WPTK with ability to manage NinjaFirewall plugin

    Currently, WordPress Toolkit allows only deactivating of the plugin in WordPress > example.com > Plugins tab. However, it should also be possible to activate it via WPTK, not directly in WP Admin dashboard.

  4. Strengthen WordPress Toolkit password policy to match Plesk's password policy

    WordPress Toolkit doesn't have a strict password policy as Plesk has, as it allows very weak passwords to be changed to. Therefore, allowing WordPress Toolkit to have the same password policy as configured in Plesk or having a configurable password policy should increase security.

  5. Add global option to control default value of "Search Indexing Enabled" and "Debugging" for newly created site

    We've WordPress development company and use Plesk for managing lots of staging servers for projects under development.
    All domains are created automatically via API as part of the project's start process, and, of course, all instances that are under development should not be indexed during the development stage (as it will affect the page index of the site in production).
    By default, "Search Indexing" option is enabled, and this is quite inconvenient and error prone for us (as it requires manual setup of the created instance).
    Adding global server-wide configuration option for WP Toolkit that will control such default behavior…

  6. Text field for notes per WordPress installation

    For managing many WordPress installations with WP Toolkit, it would be helpful to be able to add a (searchable) text note to each instance.
    Similar to labels, but just a free text field where you can insert a few lines of text.

  7. UI to limit Wordpress revisions

    We can limit revisions by using
    define('WPPOSTREVISIONS', false);
    or
    define('WPPOSTREVISIONS', 20);

    Make this available via the UI and ability to set defaults for all WP sites.

  11. Manage Wordpress updates, themes and pluging via CLI

    It is only possible to install a new WordPress instance with such options:
    https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/cli-linux/using-command-line-utilities/wptoolkit-wordpress-toolkit.78685/

    For example:
    plesk ext wp-toolkit --install -domain-name <domain> -auto-updates true -plugins-auto-updates true -themes-auto-updates true

    The other way is to manage it via Plesk GUI for existing domains:
    https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002224733

    Please add a feature to manage all updates for existing wordpress domains via SSH/WP-CLI

  12. Ability to set default values as part of a set.

    Would save a lot of time setting up a new wordpress if we could create a set with default values we always set anyway, like not allowing comments from people who aren't login etc, time/dates, time zones etc.

  15. Update custom/premium assets like themes and plugins with Smart Updates

    The WordPress Toolkit and Smart Updates shall register custom/premium assets like themes and plugins which aren't available on WordPress.org. Basically, if the Dashboard in the WordPress backend shows updates, the toolkit and Smart Updates should be able to recognize them and and include them into the update and test.

  16. Bot protection in Wordpress Toolkit should include the option to exclude some bots

  17. Integration with localwp

    Localwp (https://localwp.com/) is an amazing tool for WordPress development. It integrates with two hosts, FlyWheel and WPEngine, which works amazingly well as well. You can clone an environment from the host to your local environment and upload it back to your host in a matter of a few clicks.

    If there could be a Plesk integration as well, that would make the be great!!! ( https://localwp.com/host-interest/ )
