Plugin Toggle

Description

For those times when you’re too lazy to visit the Plugins screen to toggle a plugin on or off.

It’s also helpful when troubleshooting:

This simple plugin is awesome, especially when it comes to diagnosing problems. One of the tenants of troubleshooting WordPress is to disable every plugin and re-enable them one by one in a process of elimination.

Generally, this is accomplished by having the plugin management page in one browser tab with the front end of the website in another. When a plugin is deactivated, switch browser tabs and refresh to see if the problem disappears. Depending on the speed of your site and the number of plugins installed, this can be a cumbersome experience.

Very Handy for Diagnosis and “Work Arounds”

This is very handy for toggling plugins on and off for diagnosis, or for solutions that require temporarily re configuring your plugin set.

Good for trialing several plugins in the same genre, by setting them up, then switching them in or out of the setup.

Nice big multi-column list of all the plugins, reduces the amount of scrolling to see them all.

This is good, and getting better.
Thank you

Just What I Needed!

I was in a situation where one plugin, when active, interfered with the back end update function of another plugin. My problem was it was easy to forget that I had deactivated the first plugin while working in the second plugin. Now I can quickly view the status of and reactivate any deactivated plugin.

Extremely Handy!!!

Highly recommended to make you more productive. A big thank you to the Author.
I just hate it when plugins clash, and this makes the tedious work of fault finding so much easier.

Super!

Superduper little plugin! I love it.

One small request: add an option to order the plugins vertically instead of horizontally. For me it makes more sense to look through the plugin names vertically, so column for column. Now you have to look through long horizontal “lines” across the columns. I think sorting them within columns is more user firnedly and intuitive than sorting them horizontally across the columns.

Request fulfilled. Thanks!
