Plugin Test Drive

Test any wordpress plugin before activating it.

What does this plugin do?

This plugin lets you load other plugins conditionally by user name or IP address.

Which version is required to run this plugin?

This plugin will work on wp 3.0 and above only.

Which tester key should I choose, by IP or by user name?

You may pick whichever you like. The difference is that some plugins are intended to work for unregistered visitors only. In these cases, "by IP" is more suitable. in other cases, "by user name" may be more convenient.

What happens to the tested plugins once I deactivate PTD?

They return to being inactive as before.

Can I test a plugin while it's active

No. first deactivate it.

Why can't I activate/edit/update/delete plugins that are in testing mode

To ensure safe transition from and to testing mode, these actions are disabled for tested plugins. To enable these actions again, simply stop testing the plugin.

What else should I know before using this plugin?

For plugins that enable typing a function call directly in your theme files, make sure to include "if_function_exists()":

  • WRONG - some_plugin_function();
  • RIGHT - if (function_exists(' some_plugin_function ')) { some_plugin_function(); }
