  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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).

  4. Add Smart Update to a Service Plan

    I would like to be able to add the Smart Updates feature to a specific service plan.

    It wouldn’t be activated for all new installations just the users of a specific plan.

    I would buy 30 sites of Smart Updates for WPT. If the new customer chooses the 'starter' plan they don't get the Smart Update, if they choose the 'super' plan then they get Smart Update for free. Free meaning it would be deducted from my quantity of sites purchased. Then it would automatically activate on their account.

    I love the functionality of Smart Updates and want to make…

  6. Improve WP-Toolkit "Sort by" mechanim

    At this moment, whenever a WP site is synced, the appearance of an instance at the top of the list is expected in any sort. This was done in order to make it easier to find an instance in the list.

    This means the "Sort by" URL mechanism is not being respected, this change is considered a point of improvement to not cause damage to people relying on the "sort by" mechanism to distinguish their instances.

  7. Add the possibility to customize the WordPress Toolkit Set to install WP in a custom directory

    Add the possibility to customize the WordPress Toolkit Set to install WP in a custom directory (e.g., “/wp”) instead of installing it in the root folder (httpdocs)

    Reason: The automatic WP installation performed via a WordPress Toolkit Set through a Hosting Plan would work fine if the customer’s current site is not built on WP or another php-based platform, but will fail and mess up their current site if their domain already contains a WP or php-based installation at the root level.

  10. Add the import feature to the "plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli" utility

    There is an export option for the "plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli":
    plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli -instance-id 2 -- export
    Starting export process...
    Writing to file /var/www/vhosts/example.com/httpdocs/futureinvestments.wordpress.2022-06-03.000.xml
    Success: All done with export.
    But the import feature require native "wp" utility to be installed, and fails via plesk utility with error:
    WordPress Importer needs to be installed. Try 'wp plugin install wordpress-importer --activate'.

    Such option (import) in plesk ext wp-toolkit --wp-cli would improve usability

  14. Change WPTK target instance name when copying an instance

    When using the WPTK "copy data" feature, it also overwrites the name of the target instance with that of the source instance. This causes both target and source instances to have the same name, which causes confusion in other operations.

    Is it possible to prevent the "copy data" feature from updating the target instance's name, or remove the instance names from the UI altogether?

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. Retrieve the WordPress password and admin username of the customer

    We'd like to auto-deploy some wordpress instances on our Plesk server. I've tested the Wordpress Toolkit, and it works great, but I have one problem : The Wordpress admin password isn't sent to the customer.

    I know that we can read the password from the Plesk Interface, but I'd like our users to get their wordpress password without having them to log on into Plesk.

    Please implement any solution to send the Wordpress password to the customer, e.g to get it trough the API call or to be able to sent the email notification directly from Plesk.
