    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.

  2. 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

    We have addressed this request to a certain (reasonable) extent. Specifically:

    • WP permalinks will work if nginx works in the nginx-only mode for a website, serving FPM
    • WP permalinks won’t work if nginx is working as a proxy in front of Apache
    • WP permalinks won’t work in case of custom error pages.

    This change is available since around WPT 4.3.2. Let us know if you have any questions or comments on our forum: https://talk.plesk.com/forums/wordpress-toolkit.750/

  3. add the option to add custom wordpress themes and plugins and enable the user to set those as standard for installation

    As of now only the standard free Wordpress themes and plugins are available. This is kinda stupid since professional sites rely on professional themes and plugins being bought from reliable vendors.

    As such it even makes sense to remove all basic themes upon installation.

    The ideal option would be:
    1. Supply and store a custom Wordpress theme or plugin in Plesk (which might include also a Child-theme)
    2. Offer the option to supply that theme or plugin from 1. as standard to any Wordpress installation
    3. Offer the option to update/upgrade the theme or plugin centrally

    In themes it is…

    Hey everyone,

    We have released the ability to upload and install custom plugins and themes in WPT 2.5. Uploaded plugins/themes are added to the plugin/theme pool and are available for installation. You can also add them to plugin/theme sets and preinstall them whenever a new subscription is created.

    If you have other ideas or feedback on how this feature works, reach us at our forum here: https://talk.plesk.com/forums/plesk-extensions.725/.

    Thank you for your feedback!

  5. 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.

  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.

  7. WordPress migration tool

    Add WordPress migration tool

    Please add a WordPress migration tool where one can move the hole WordPress installation within a domain to another domain or subdomain,
    - on the same Server inside Plesk
    - to another Server with Plesk installation
    - to another Server with different OS like from Windows IIS to Linux Apache / NGINX (with rewriting the permissions from web.config to .htacces and all other necessary files and the other way round)
    Thanks.

    WordPress Toolkit v2.0 adds the cloning functionality that allows you to create a copy of your WordPress instance anywhere on the same server.

    Also, the latest version of Plesk Migrator enhances the WordPress Toolkit by adding the ability to take over remote WordPress instances, migrating them to your server.

    Both extensions are available right now.

  8. 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).

    See: https://www.siteground.com/tutorials/wordpress/real-cron-job/

    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.

  9. Wordpress Toolkit for Reseller Account

  10. WordPress managment. Edit login URL

    WordPress management is great but my security plugin lets me change the login URL from the WordPress default. Either Plesk needs to get the correct URL from the database or let the user edit the login URL

  12. 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.

  13. Translation of WordPress Toolkit 2.0

    The new features of the WP-Toolkit are awesome. But I am missing localization. Insise the system every button and explaining texts are only in english.

    It would be nice to provide translations (e.g. in german) as at the moment it is a mix up of translated and untranslated content inside the tool.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

    WordPress Toolkit v2.0 installs WordPress directly from wordpress.org and provides you with a selection of all languages supported by WordPress.

    WordPress Toolkit will be updated to v2.0 automatically if you have the previous version of WordPress Toolkit installed.

    To install WordPress in Hebrew, open WordPress Toolkit on a subscription, click Install > Custom and select Hebrew under Interface Language. Note that Hebrew is spelled in Hebrew characters, not the latin ones.

  19. 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.

  20. Wordpress Update-Notification E-Mails - adjust Mail Frequency

    As lot of our Customers / Reseller complain abaut the Daily sent Wordpress Update Mails - it would be important if we could change the Frequency of the Mails ... so we could say send them once per week ...

    We know that we can disable them completely - but that's not an option - as it's important to urge Customers to upgrade their WP installations ... but E-Mail every day is too much! ;-)

    Thank you
