  2. Add the possibility to define which theme will be set by default after the WordPress installation

    For example when we add the required theme into the WordPress set, after the installation the "Twenty Twenty" theme will be set as default.

    Please add the possibility to define which theme will be set by default after the WordPress installation as via the CLI method as via Plesk GUI.

    The CLI method is important here because some customers use only this method for a WordPress installation.

    We have released this feature in WPT 5.2 update. You can use GUI or CLI to choose a theme that should be activated upon the installation of a set.

    CLI command example: plesk ext wp-toolkit —sets -operation activate-theme -set-id ID -theme-id THEME_ID
    If you’re using GUI, go to Sets and click on “+ Add Themes” button next to the corresponding theme.

    Let us know on our forum (talk.plesk.com) if you encounter any issues.

  3. Allow changing additional wp-cron task settings

    When "Disable wp-cron.php option" is enabled, it is possible to customize only task's execution time, or it will be re-created with the default settings (details: https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/obsidian/administrator-guide/73391/#setting-up-a-regular-run-of-wp-cron-php).

    Add an option to customize other wp-cron.php task's properties (description, send notifications or not, etc).

  5. Custom labels in WP Toolkit and additional filtering

    Each WP Toolkit entry now has 5 predefinied labels (production, demo, testing, staging, development) to mark site with.

    Would be great to have ability to create own label/labels.

    Also, would be great to have ability to filter sites with marked label, i. .e. show me all sites with label "production" in WP Toolkit.

    We have added the ability to filter sites by labels in WPT 4.7, please check it out.

    Since we haven’t seen any examples of custom labels for more than a month (which was the second part of the request), we’re closing this request as completed. If anyone feels the need to have custom labels, please create a new request and provide examples of such labels, so we can better understand why they’re needed.

  6. Update of paid WordPress plugins via WordPress Toolkit

    As you know, WordPress Toolkit can update plugins and themes installed only from WordPress.org. Paid plugins installed from vendors' websites cannot be updated using WordPress Toolkit.
    It's not convenient to update plugins from WordPress.org in the WordPress Toolkit and log into WordPress admin dashboard to update paid ones, so please implement this feature.
    Especially considering that it's possible to update both free and paid plugins in the WP dashboard (in the menu "Updates").

    WordPress Toolkit 4.7 now can update paid plugins & themes, if these updates are available in the WordPress admin area. Note that certain plugins and themes do not support automatic updates, but display notifications about update availability anyway. This particulal scenario isn’t fully supported yet.

  8. In WordPress Toolkit Settings, provide an option for default table name prefix

    Currently, we can define the default database prefix, but it assigns a random table name prefix, which is confusing to users. I'd like an option to specify the default table name prefix

  9. wordpress toolkit disable auto update

    Plesk Web Admin version comes with a limited WP Toolkit.

    It updates WP automatically and the option to deactivate the autoupdate is blocked because of licensing.

    I understand that to handle updates from Plesk one should buy a Toolkit license but for the basic free version it should be possible do disable updates.

    Thank you.

  10. WordPress Toolkit: Reseller Plans to use individual sets

    A a reseller I would like to be able to create my own specific plug-in 'sets' for my WordPress customers. Normally this should be done at this level, not by the 'top level' administrator.

    Maybe it is possible to use the same tab and visualize created sets from resellers with an icon.

    Once upon a time we have released sets for resellers in WPT v5.2 a couple of minutes ago.

    We’ve also managed to ensure that resellers can automatically provision WordPress with one of their sets when a new subscription is created.

    Let us know on our forum if you have any feedback.

  11. 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 why the…

    Starting with WPT 4.6, WordPress administrators can automatically update their website URL in the WordPress database and wp-config.php file based on the actual current URL. This procedure is particularly useful after migrating a website from a different location like your local workstation. The Update Site URL feature is available in the “hamburger” (context drop-down menu) on a WordPress site card.

    If you have feedback on this feature, let us know at our forum (https://talk.plesk.com) or other communication channels.

  12. More descriptive Action Log for WordPress Toolkit

    Make Action Log more descriptive for actions such the ones in WordPress Toolkit.

    I.E.: Actions are registered like the installation with full information like for example the version of the product however, when it gets updated, the versions are not shown anymore neither initial and final.

    WordPress Toolkit v5.4 now includes site logs for each WordPress installation. These logs contain info about important WordPress Toolkit actions performed on a site, so I’m closing this request as completed.

    Note: we still need to add a number of other actions to the log, and this is something we’re already working on in scope of upcoming WPT v5.5 release. A separate interface for viewing log files will also be included.

    Let us know if you have any questions or feedback.

  13. 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.

  14. Customize Quick installation of Wordpress

    It would be great to add ability to customize Quick installation settings of Wordpress. For example,currently it is not possible to change installation path in case of Quick installation option is selected. However it maybe required to modify the path without customizing other options (such as Administrative access credentials, main configuration etc), Having ability to modify default quick installation settings would be a nice tool, which make it easier to use WordPress for end-users.

  15. Refresh the page in a browser right after detaching a WP instance in WP Toolkit

    Right after detaching an instance in Home > Wordpress it remains on the page because the page is not refreshed.
    I suggest to invoke page refresh after detaching as it can confuse the customers.

  16. Plesk API - support for Wordpress cloning

    I suggest creating an option to use Plesk API for cloning a Wordpress installation. This is well easy now in GUI environment but does not support third-party dashboard integration.

    It would be great to implement this into Plesk API so clients would be able to create staging environment on one click without a need to login to the Plesk interface.

  20. 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('DISABLEWPCRON', 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).

    The ability to disable wp-cron was added in WPT 4.7. Users can enable a switch on each site, disabling wp-cron execution. This will also create a scheduled task in Plesk which you can modify to change the execution frequency.

    Server administrators can also choose to enable this feature on all new WordPress sites. This is done on WPT Settings screen.
