Deactivate All Plugins

    What would be nice is a link or button that will disable/deactivate (then reactivate/reenable) plugins. For when upgrading wordpress or debugging purposes. For those that have 20+ plugins, its a hassle to have to click and refresh the page 20+ times. I think I only have 15 or so, but it still seems like alot :P

    Heh, it appears that I currently have 38 activated on my main site. :)
    Yes, this would be great. Though one would have to be careful with the reactivating. Would it be possible to have a "reactivate last used plugins" feature instead of reactivating them all? Not every plugin in there is used all the time...

    What about checkboxes with "deactivate checked plugins" button and a corresponding "activate checked plugins" button? Would that and a "check all" button satisfy this? (Assuming of course that activating an Active plugin and deactivating one that's not Active do the expected things.)

    @converting2wp: YES. This is exactly what needs to bed one actually. I totally blanked that out, then again it was nearing 5AM ;)

    Check boxes should be implemented so that you can choose what plugins to enable, as even I do not activate all my plugins, as I also test certain plugins and have a few that I still need to implement.

    Also, I believe there should be error correction, such as if there will be conflict with anohter plugin, it will not enable that plugin and will state why; this would be awesome.

    I know that you are supposed to deactivate all plugins before upgrading, but sometimes people get lazy. This would help speed up the upgrading process for people with many plugins.

    I made a plugin called, Plugin Tools, and one of the features it has is disabling all plugins. I'm not completely done with it but it should be done soon, I'll be posting about it soon at my site.

    Well I see that I am not first, but I created plugin(WP Enhanced Plugins) that can interest you. It supports plugin activation/deactivation and I am now working on additional Save/Load/Export configuration functionality... It is first version so any feedback(both bugs and recommendations) is welcomed.
