Plugin Groups

Description

If you have a lot of plugins installed, it can be difficult to manage them all. Now you can organize the plugins admin page by grouping your plugins by purpose. Each group will be displayed as a plugin status tabs in the plugins admin page, so you can easily filter which plugins you are viewing by group.

A free plugin by David Cramer.

Reviews

Excellent plugin, belongs in every admins toolbox

This plugin has been a life saver. Many years ago there was a similar plugin that was abandoned. Hilariously, while this plugin has many uses, I find it MOST valuable when I am trying to find out why my site is broken, and determining which other plugin has broken my site. (Add all running plugins to “Should be active group”, Disable them 4-5 at a time till stuff fixes/breaks, remove the shite plugin, enable all of the plugins from the “Should be active group” Real life saver.

STILL WORKS

Still works with WordPress 5.0.3 even though upon first-time activation it logs two light notices on the plugins page, but works great!!!!

Great Plugin

does exactly what it says. should have an "uncategorized" category for plugins added after sorting though.

Disable on front

Good work! Some issues: 1. please add unistall.php file, to delete unused options of the plug if we uninstall it... 2. we dont need the plugin on front, so better do nothing on front. Add please this line on top of main plugin file: if( ! is_admin() ) return; 3. why we need codemirror.js file if it's not used anywhere?

Not maintained and causes errors

The plugin has an error initially upon activation as there are no groups by default. This is resolved once you add a group, however once you try activating a plugin from a group you get Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_get_current_user() in wp-includes/capabilities.php on line 539 Shame really, it had so much potential.

Works perfectly

Allows to group your plugins into different, non-exclusive groups. Interface is user friendly, plugin is stable sofar, and unique to my knowledge... thanks to the author for providing such a great service when having to manage tenths of plugins, having to disable part of them for some debug sessions and then enable manually one after the other !
