  1. Default Wordpress Desktop to LIST instead of LARGE ICONS

    Wordpress Desktop has become a problem with non-intuitive placement of functions and LARGE icon displays that just take up space 99% of the time. The GUI change is NOT helpful.

  3. External MySQL permissions per user/reseller

    After adding an external database server via tools & settings -> db servers , set the option of who is permitted to use it.
    This way we can offer private sql srv's to e.g resellers or anyone who would like to buy this addon feature.

  4. Backup on list view

    BackupManager is a great addition to Plesk. It would be great,
    if you would see on the list view "domains" if a backup is configured with schedule. For example, With a column "Backup" red cross or
    green hook.

  6. Provide DNS query logs for each domain along with other customer log files.

    Hi, my end users would like the DNS query logs for their domains. It would be great if Plesk could provide this via the existing panel!

    Thanks!

  7. Wordpress toolkit - Reset internal database and better management options

    Hello all,

  17. WordPress Toolkit site preview disabled.

    WordPress Toolkit as the preview of the web-site uses the same sized images 1024x728 at any view settings such as list, titles and cards, also there is no cache for images. It might cause the performance issues such as slow load of a web-page.

    Option to disable web-site preview, or smaller images for some regime such as list at which site-preview presented as thumbnail image around 130x100px would resolve this issue.

  19. Restore Backup to alternative domain

    WHen restoring a Backup it would be beneficial if you could restore it to a different domain so as not to overwrite the existing domain.

    This is particularly useful as it allows you to access database / files to see what has changed since the backup was created to help identify issues/errors, but doesn't destroy the curent domain in the process.

    (our existing workaround at the moment is to manually backup the database and files - restore the backup - back this up manually and then recreate it in a new subdomain, then restore the first manual backup into the…

  20. Remove 'Secure with an SSL/TLS Certificate' from 'Add a Subdomain'

    When adding a subdomain, it takes (at least at my webhoster) 15 min before the changes take effect. If one checked 'Secure the domain with Let's Encrypt' on the page 'Add a Subdomain', an error is thrown because the newly created subdomain is not available in time.

    Therefore, I suggest taking this 'feature' off the 'Add a Subdomain' page.

    The time required for subdomain to become available depends on a many factors. In your particular case it takes a long time, in lot of other cases it works fast. Hoster can configure the server to wait longer, so, the feature can works even in your case.

    That’s why we have no plans to remove this.

    But anyway, everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important. If we’ll see a lot of votes for this request, we’ll reconsider it.
