Plugin Protector

Protects against inadvertant update and deletion of select plugins.

Does this plugin save customizations I have made to plugins?

No. It only offers you additional protection against deleting or overwriting your customizations. It does allow you to add notes as to why a plugin has been protected.

Can I use Plugin Protector on a multisite install?

Yes, as of Version 0.4, Plugin Protector allows for protection in the network admin of a multisite install.

Does Plugin Protector give me a final line of defense when updating a file from the plugin editor?

It does display a warning when you are editing a protected plugin, but does not enact any safeguards after having clicked 'Update File'.
