Support » Plugin: Plugin Manager » BEST PLUGIN EVER!!! Read this review!

  • NOTE: This is the very first time I’ve ever reviewed a plugin. Ever. It’s that good!

    Ok, that said I want to share that I almost did not install this plugin for two reasons. First, it has some bad reviews. And second, it gave me the dreaded “Warning: This plugin has not been tested with your current version of WordPress.”

    (I am using WP 4.9.6 and this plugin works perfectly, btw.)

    But I was desperate. I have a zillion plugins, many that effect the same things. I absolutely needed a way to organize. So I said screw it, gave this thing a shot.

    OMG OMG OMG!!!! I AM SO GLAD I DID!

    Today I had the very first demonstration of why I needed it. I received a spam comment on a post. But I’m using Google reCaptcha so how could that happen. I was able to go to my plugin page, click on the “reCaptcha” group I had created and quickly find all associated plugins. A quick check of settings showed that I had one unneeded plugin, and two others trying to cover the same things.

    I would have gone nuts trying to figure it out without this plugin!

    NOTE TO SOMEONE WHO IS ABOUT TO INSTALL THIS:
    There is very little instruction on how to use this, but you really don’t need it. Once you figure it out, you’ll understand. All you have to do is create your first group, after that you’re gold.

    Let me walk you through that. For this example, let’s say you want to group Elementor related plugins:
    1. Go to your plugin page and find Elementor.
    2. Click GROUP, then CREATE GROUPE.
    3. Put “Elementor” in GROUP NAME area and choose a color.
    4. Then click CREATE.

    Now close that window so your back on the plugin list page. Go down your list and checkoff all Elementor related plugins (Element Pack, Granular Controls, etc). Now click on BULK ACTIONS, choose GROUP, and hit APPLY.

    BLAMMO! Easy as pie! Yes, you can assign multiple tags to the same plugin.

    Now you will probably want to get rid of those GIGANTIC icons. You do not need them because the text link “Group” does the same thing as the icon of the people.

    To get rid of that, install the plugin Admin CSS MU. The function of that plugin is to all you to install your own custom CSS to the admin area.

    Once installed, you can get rid of the icons entirely by adding this:

    /* Enter Your Custom Admin CSS Here */
    .plugins .plugin-title .dashicons, .plugins .plugin-title img {
    	display: none;
    }

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++
    NOTE TO THE AUTHOR: Please don’t give up on this fabulous plugin. This is the SINGLE best, most useful plugin I’ve ever installed! Don’t listen to the negative reviews, please keep updating/refining this mod. No kidding, this needs to be added to WP core functionality. It’s that good!

    I FLIPPPPPPPING LOVE your plugin! Absolutely brilliant! Thank you so much!!!
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++
