      Everyone, thank you for the feedback, it’s been quite enlightening. We’d like to understand the root cause behind your requests to change the WP installation URL and we’d appreciate if you could answer our questions below:

      1. Do you need this to support some sort of staging scenario, where you’re synchronizing changes between “staging” and “production” instances?

      2. Do you develop WP websites in a temporary folder not easily accessible from outside and then, as soon as you consider the website to be done, you move it to the “final” (production) folder?

      3. Is there a scenario different from #1 and #2 above that requires moving WP to a different directory after the installation, and if so, could you describe the business scenario?

      Since Uservoice is not particularly well-suited to have these discussions, we suggest all interested parties to visit the following thread on our forum and participate in the…

    • Autoconfigure NGINX for WordPress Permalinks

      WordPress Permalinks are not working with Nginx.
      The Webpage shows the error: wordpress 404 ngix
      The URL-rewriting with other Permalinks than pageID is not working with Nginx.

      Implementing this seems not easy (for me), just when you also want to use a WP caching tool.
      Have a look here:

      https://codex.wordpress.org/Nginx

      Please implement this out of the box by activating with checkbox etc...

      Thanks

        This isn’t particularly easy as there are so many factors (as Marvin has correctly stated in the comments), but we’ll see what we can do to at least make things easier for you.

        Please continue providing your feedback and voting as it’s important for us to understand the popularity of the request. Thanks!

      • Improvements for Wordpress Toolkit

        Disable the built-in code editor adding define('DISALLOW_CODE_EDIT', true); in wp-config.php

        Anonymize login error message because it actually tells you what is wrong (the username or the password), hooking into login_errors with add_filter('login_errors, function() { return 'Login error'; });

        Apply permission 400 (-rw-------) to wp-config.php

        Change login URL avoiding the standard /wp-login.php or /wp-admin/ (pre)installing plugin "Lockdown WP Admin" or applying the same idea.

        Block brute force (pre)installing plugin "Limit Login Attempts" or applying the same idea.

        Mentioned plugins may be installed by default when Wordpress is installed through the APS, and may be added as an optional security measure by…

            Hi Jeremy,

            WP Toolkit supports WordPress multi-site if you enable the multi-site feature manually. However, it seems to make sense for us to provide an option of creating a multi-site WP instance upon the installation. Let us know if this will help you out.

          • Set default WordPress language

            By default, WordPress Toolkit creates instances with the same interface language as Plesk customer interface. Please consider adding the option to set custom default language for new instances.

            • Ask for confirmation when click on "Install Wordpress"'s button.

              On a website that's already installed with Wordpress the button to Install Wordpress still appears and sometimes when you misclick, another installation of wordpress starts.

              Please add an option/or directly Ask for confirmation when clicking on "Install Wordpress" because of a mis-click, once the installation starts there is no way to stop it, and it installs on the same website that has already Wordpress installed.

                • Allow Wordpress Scan to search for a custom directory name instead of wp-content

                  I habitually rename my wp-contents directory for security reasons (as part of iThemes Security). As a result Plesk no longer recognises the Wordpress installations on the server, when scanning so I'm unable to take advantage of Plesk's Wordpress features.

                  Please could this be modified to allow me to specify a custom name for my wp-contents directory?

                  • Wordpress Cronjob on Installation move to crontab

                    WordPress has automatically fetch a cron job with each poll.
                    With nearly 1,000 users at the same time that it can render your server.
                    Even with a strong server.

                    It is possible in the configuration to disable the automatic cron job and outsource.

                    http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/website/wordpress/disabling-the-wp-cronphp-in-wordpress

                    This could manually insert in Plesk.

                    I have so imagined that one among the WordPress settings applies the default value of the cron jobs for 10 min. And you can manually select this value from every minute to every day 1x.
                    So as in the previous Cronjob menu but just in the WordPress configuration of jeweilgen…

                      By contributing to the project and having other devs already working on it, you will be able to amplify the speed of work being done.

                      Further, this project is the holy grail of WordPress development. People would literally flock to Plesk for this feature alone (not to mention its awesome in other ways).

                          Email notifications to customers are sent on every available WordPress update, that's far too much. My clients don't take them for important anymore and don't update at all. I suggest to fine tune available settings in Tools & Settings > Notifications > APS application updates (customer’s digest): Different notification options if the available update is a WordPress Core update, a plugin update or a theme update. So for example the plugin and theme update notification could be turned off for customers, but WordPress core update notifications would be still sent.

                                  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.

                                  • Add a migration tool to WP Toolkit from other software installation platforms (Installatron / Softaculous)

                                    We've been using Installatron for ages, but WP Toolkit has become a really powerful tool over the last couple of years. While we can work on integrating our systems with WP Toolkit directly, one major obstacle is moving clients over from one system to the other - including their backups / update settings / etc.

                                    I'd love to find a way to make migrations over to the WP Toolkit seamless!

                                    • Wordpress CPU and RAM usage stats and slow plugin warnings

                                      I would like to see the CPU and RAM usage by Wordpress applications.

                                      I would also like to see a warning about slow php scripts, which would help to catch Wordpress plugins that use too many resources.

                                      • Wordpress Toolkit favoritism and filtering

                                        Currently the Wordpress Toolkit interface is a bit messy with all the Wordpress instances of you and your customers.
                                        It would be great if there would be the possibility so that you can mark and filter for certain Wordpress instances. Marking with stars could make it possible that the most important Wordpress instances always appear on the top and can be checked for updates and security issues very quickly.

                                        • Wordpress Toolkit - URL switch (main URL <=> preview URL)

                                          Hello,

                                          I would like to suggest something which could be VERY helpfull to customers which are moving their Wordpress instances between servers. Lets say you have domain.com on Server1. Then you are moving it to Server2 with Plesk and Wordpress Toolkit but domain.com is still pointing to Server1. Issue with Wordpress is that if you don't use main URL then all media files (css, images etc) are not being loaded correctly and customer can't be sure if everything will work correctly when he switch DNS settings for domain.com from Server1 to Server2.

                                          My suggestion is that it would be great…
