  1. Ability to specify what WordPress sets are available for customers in Service plan

    For now, all the existing at "WordPress > Sets" sets are available for customers when they install WordPress.
    The idea is to limit available sets in service plan, like available applications in "Applications" tab.

    I scenario

    If the mentioned directory was manually removed from the server-side and the Detach button was pressed after in Domains > example.com > WordPress, the leftovers of the non-existed WordPress instance still can be found in WordPress SQLite database /usr/local/psa/var/modules/wp-toolkit/wp-toolkit.sqlite3

  11. 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).

  13. Add functionality to install, modify and manage wordpress or joomla via API

    Right now you can set a service plan to have WordPress or Joomla pre-installed with any new subscriptions, however the installation data such as admin usernames, passwords, site titles are randomized more so if the subscription/domain is setup via API. I think it could be nice if there was an option to install them with custom data or customize them via API. such that when installing via API, i can explicitly set the site title, admin username and passwords, database usernames and passwords etc.

  14. Grant the permission to manage only the WordPress Toolkit to additional subscription users

    We want to create an additional user assigned to a specific user role providing only permission to manage WordPress Toolkit, but this is not possible in Plesk.

    In order to allow an additional user to manage WordPRess Toolkit, it's required to grant permission to "Create and manage sites". This permission allows to the additional user to modify as well the Web Hosting Access, this means that the additional user can modify the password for the owner of the subscription, and we don't want this. We want a restricted environment for this additional user, so they can only manage WordPress Toolkit…

  15. Allow configure the Auto-Update settings of WP Toolkit at the Service Plan

    Allow configuring the Auto-Update settings of WP Toolkit based on the service plan or the Subscription.

    This would allow configuring the Auto-Update settings desired to a certain amount of Subscriptions globally at once.

    For example:
    Service Plan 1
    Update Wordpress > Yes
    Update Plugins > Yes
    Update Themes > Yes

    Service Plan 2
    Update Wordpress > Yes
    Update Plugins > Yes
    Update Themes > No

    etc...

  19. 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!
