Loving its wonderful practicality!

It is a great help for keeping well organized when loading plugins that you like.
Fast and powerful at the same time.
Besides its bulk functionality lets you install, activate, deactivate and delete.
You can have as many lists as you need for different purposes and managing activities.
A great plugin manager that keeps the information at your fingertips.
Congratulations and thank you very much!

My fav!

The best bulk plugin installer. Very easy to use and huge time saver.

Huge Timesaver!

Once you’ve set up a free account and have an API:

1. Create and name a list (ex. My Basic Plugins)
2. Populate the list with the plugins of your choice (You can have multiple lists)
3. Install this plugin on new WP site and enter your wpfavs api
4. Choose the list you want loaded on site and install
5. Once installed, select All and activate
6. Aside from your individual plugin settings, you’re done!

It honestly took me longer to create this short note than it does for me to install and activate all the plugins I might want on a new site.

I give it a 5/5

Thanks @Damian
