  5. Post-update hooks in WordPress Toolkit

    Add post-update hooks in WordPress Toolkit, which can be used to automate the process of committing to Git (e.g. WordPress core and plugin updates that are automatically installed by WordPress Toolkit).

    Use case:

    Be able to respond to the event and write a program to do things like: a) commit the changes to the local git repository and push them to origin, b) trigger an alert in the monitoring system

  7. Modify the email sent when a new WordPress site is created

    We need to modify the email that is sent to customers, when a new WordPress site is created. I am attaching an example of the email:

    Your new WordPress site has been successfully set up at:

    https://<site>/wordpress

    You can log in to the administrator account with the following information:

    Username: created_user
    Password: The password you chose during installation.
    Log in here: https://<site>/wordpress/wp-login.php

    We hope you enjoy your new site. Thanks!

  8. Add an option to unlink a site from WordPress Toolkit list.

    Hi. I have about 50 sites on my Plesk server. Some are Wordpress sites developed outside this server and uploaded after development ended. Once I scan the server, all Wordpress sites are added to the WordPress Toolkit list.
    The problem is not all customers are paying for regular bases maintenance so I don't want their website to be on my WordPress Toolkit list.
    Now I can't unlink any of the sites in the list.

    You can unlink individual instances, but they will be added back when WPT performs its daily automatic scan, so it’s not a fitting solution for you.

    We are planning to add the ability to permanently detach instances from WPT. Please continue voting for this feature to help us prioritize it accordingly.

  9. 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.

    Is it possible to list plugins and themes which are not visible / processed / updated by WordPress Toolkit?

    WPT already supports custom plugins and themes that are working with WordPress via standard means. In other words, if you can install a plugin/theme update through the standard WordPress admin > Plugins / Themes interface, WPT should be able to do this as well.

    —AK

  10. Ability to set default timezone for all newly created WordPress instances

    Scenario:
    For example the specific time zone is set in Plesk > Tools & Settings > System Tine > You time zone (GMT+03:00) Europe/Sofia

    However, after creating a new WordPress instance timezone will be set as UTC +0 in WordPress admin dashboard > Settings > General.

    Request:
    Add the ability in WordPress Toolkit use the same timezone which is set in Plesk > Tools & Settings > System Tine > You time zone or ability to set the default time zone for all newly created WordPress instances.

  11. Enable "Compatible With" field in Worpress Theme and Plugin

    This is an important update without which you can not guarantee the installation of themes and plugins in compatible versions, causing rework.
    Each version of a plugin or theme is compatible with a range of versions of Wordpress and other plugins that are used together to provide the features declared by the developer of a given plugin or theme.
    At a first moment you can add the fields below in the "Upload Pugin" or "Upload Theme" screen:
    Wordpress Minimum Version
    Wordpress Maximum Version
    These values can be used in the "Install Wordpress" screen to validate the versions being used in…

  12. Update or Status notifications from the WP-Toolkit by E-Mail

    In the Plesk WordPress Toolkit there is so far no possibility to switch on a notification if something changes in the status of a page. e.g. SSL / security settings or the latter and most interesting updates! For WordPress there are several plugins that take over the update notification function, but they don't always work. But since the WordPress toolkit has the function, it would be great if you could turn on an e-mail notification!

  13. WordPress plugins status for multisite instances

    Please add possibility to manage plugins of multisite instances from WordPress toolkit.

    Currently, the status of WordPress plugins for the main website is always showed as disabled despite the fact that in WordPress nnetwork they are enabled.
    Thus managing them from Plesk directly is impossible.

  14. Add support to the WordPress Toolkit for sites with different "WordPress URL" and "Site URL" settings

    The WordPress settings has an option for the WordPress URL and the Site URL to be different - i.e. the WordPress site files are in a sub-directory. But sites in this configuration do not work properly in the WordPress Toolkit.

    Given this is a core feature of WordPress and one used by a lot of sites, I think support for it in the WordPress Toolkit should be a priority.
    Details from WordPress about this option:

  16. Organize WordPress sites into groups for easy managing

    We manage Wordpress Sites for our Customers in different Levels, like managed Bronze-, Silver- or Gold-Level.
    If we can group the Wordpress-Sites, it will be easy to select all Gold-managed Sites for Updates, Optimisations, etc.
    A field for comments would also be fine.

  17. 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

  18. 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/ )

  19. multi-factor authentication for WordPress Toolkit

    When the miniOrange 2 Factor Authentication (MFA) plugin is enabled Wordpress Toolkit provides a failed login attempt error and sends a notification before letting to insert MFA. It would be better if when logging in to WP Dashboard from Plesk UI there will be no failed login attempts when any mfa is enabled

  20. Service plan, that deploys WordPress on another VPS

    Service plan, that deploys WordPress on another VPS
    Or another mechanism, that will let you allocate not a separate space for the customer on the same server, but a separate VPS with a WordPress install with a 1 click.
