Clearfy – disable unused features


Our company has been developing plugins and themes for WordPress for many years and every time we develop a website for our clients, we face a number of problems. Our clients` websites are highly specialized and most of the functions that WordPress provides are not required for the operation of their sites. These functions are simply not used by our clients, but still they consume hosting resources or create SEO optimization problems, sometimes they just disturb editors in their daily work. Fortunately for you, we made a decision to release a universal plugin to enable and disable unused WordPress options.

Previously, ordinary webmasters had to hire a developer and pay a huge amount of money to solve typical tasks for disabling functions and optimizing WordPress. Now most of your problems have been shifted to our shoulders and we are ready to solve them. All you need to do is to download the free plugin Cleary. We personally tested all functions of the plugin on our sites and achieved good results of WordPress performance. Testing was done on such popular resources as Pingdom, GTmetrix, PageSpeed and YSlow.

We also noticed a very important feature: improvement of pages indexing and increase of the website`s traffic, due to simple seo optimization.

We recently added very useful features WP Asset CleanUp Manager (Gonzales), Disable Comments and remove comments in database, Heartbeat Control, Disable updates and enable automatic plugins and themes updates

We used some useful functions from plugins WP Asset CleanUp (Gonzales), bicycles by falbar, wp disable, easy updates manager, Disabler, Admin Bar Disabler, Cerber Security & Antispam, Admin Tweaks, Autoptimize, Fast Velocity Minify, Minify HTML, Hummingbird Page Speed Optimization, WP Super Minify

Forget about opening functions.php and entering code yourself! It is not only inconvenient but also can lead to critical errors and break your site. This code is not updated and as a result becomes obsolete. Use Clearfy to solve the needed tasks, because the plugin does not load your site and is constantly updated by professionals in the WordPress field.

Of course, there are many similar solutions to our plugin, but in order to replace the Clearfy plugin, you will need to install more than 30 plugins, where each plugin plays its small role.
This amazing plugin will be an excellent helper in SEO optimization, performance optimization and security.

Important to know! This plugin does not replace the functions of other plugins in the area of SEO optimization or performance optimization, security, etc. Our plugin complements these functions, so feel free to download free Clearfy and disable unused WordPress functions.

Everyone must have this plugin. Tell your friends and colleagues about it, so you will help them to solve a lot of problems connected with WordPress.

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Use the Settings->Clearfy – disable unused features screen to configure the plugin


Clearfy + W3TC + WordPress Performance Pack = fastest possible frontend & admin!

Clearfy has reduced the need for 3 other performance plugins down to just this one with all the features of the others combined into a neat and very well commented interface.

Well done for in-line commenting on what features do – more information the merrier as far as I am concerned here.

“Clearfy” + “W3TC” + “WordPress Performance Pack” = the fastest possible frontend & admin performance we have been able to achieve with over 150 plugins running!

Add “Scripts Dequeuer Backend” from CodeCanyon and you have all the admin tuning you could possibly need.

Lowers the memory footprint, sql calls and includes for the frontend and admin too – wins in every area.

My preference is always for using as much standard WordPress interface widgets and avoiding custom UIs to keep this plugin lighter too, so hopefully that might be considered in future to make this THE go-to plugin for WP tuning!

“Query Monitor” & “Debug Bar Slow Actions” integration for future might be handy too for selective disabling of unneeded features identified by those.

Keep up the good work and I can see this being a 1 million+ install eventually.

And let us know how to donate or contribute to support your work?

Just awesome, really!

This is one of the plugins which hooks you from the first moment. Super beautiful user interface and big bunch of really awesome options to slim down WordPress. Disable comments, manage scripts, disable unused features, improve security. I’m using it on every project. Highly recommended plugin.


This plugin is awesome.

I found it had a script manager feature. This is really useful. I am wonder if script manager can disable JS and CSS for the whole website but activate it in one page or blog only.

Example: I have contact form 7 and want to disable all of its script except contact page.

Thanks for your work and time ~.
