Must use tool for complex sites

Without this plugin, We would be unable to run a very comprehensive system that encompasses over 40 active plugins. The filtering and post types addition is just amazing and we thank you very much for it. Keep up the good work and thanks again for this amazing plugin.

Useful!

I've actually been using this plug-in for more than six months. An ungrateful comment in the support forum from someone else made me realize that I hadn't rated it, yet. It was about time!

There is very little negative about it but I should point out that there is a bit of a learning curve when you're getting started. There are lots of options and they're not always very obvious or clear on how the affect a page or each other. For example, you can choose to load plug-ins globally, by page and by filter (and now by post type). I wasn't clear on the priority of which over what so I asked in the support forum.

I got an answer - pretty amazing given the popularity, quality and price (free) of this plug-in.

Now for all of the good stuff!

I have an obscene number of plug-ins that don't always play nice with each other. Also, some of these plug-ins insist on loading their js and css files on EVERY page even if I'm using it on just one page.

This plug-in helped me remove all of the crud and weight I had on the home page therefore getting it to work a little faster.

For example I have "slider" only on my home page, so I have turned it off globally and turned it on only for the home page.

Another example, my forums use bbpress, it's crazy that this plug-in insists on loading it's style sheet on EVERY page, even home, when it's only being used in the /forums/ subdirectory. I turned it off globally and turned it on using a filter where you can specify the URL that everything starts with.

I have about 7 or 8 plug-ins that only need to run on specific or groups of pages and not site-wide and this Plug In Organizer gives me the control to choose where and when each of the operate.

Also, it is frequently updated with USEFUL functions and the author responds readily in the support thread.

It's worth the trouble to figure out the kinks to get this working.

Highly Recommend!

Downloaded today - absolutely brilliant! I was looking at other, very messy, solutions to stop plugins loading on every page and along comes the perfect answer to my prayers!! Thank you so much!!!

Best plugin ever!

Helped speed up my site so much. Careful with settings because you can cripple your site (especially if you fool around with admin settings) but for large plugins that only need to be loaded on one or two pages this is a must!

If there's one thing I would love even more, it's plugin activation based on USER ROLES!! Probably too much to ask but ok :)

Terrific job and thanks so much for keeping it so up to date as well.

Verry Good

Works exactly as intended. Love it!

Brilliant! (With two small suggestions)
By , for WP 4.1.1

I'm building a complicated site. There's a blog, a bbPress forum, a BuddyPress community, and a Q&A plugin (CM Answers Pro). All of these are large plugins and they take time to load. But not all of them have to load on every page. For example, if you're in the bbPress section of the site; you don't need BuddyPress and CM Answers.

I've worked hard at trimming the CSS and cutting out unnecessary scripts, but the real problem is the plugins. I've agonized over whether I should drop one or more of these plugins before I launch, because each one comes with a big performance hit.

But now I can have my cake and eat it, too. Plugin Organizer makes my complicated site feel quick and responsive, even on shared hosting. I can't praise it enough.

(I know, I know... I sound like I'm selling laundry detergent on TV, but the difference is really that amazing.)

I have only two small suggestions:

  1. More detailed documentation -- It's not immediately obvious how the filters are supposed to work (although once you get the hang of it, they're quite intuitive). There is a documentation page, but it's fairly brief.
  2. The admin page "puzzle" icon -- Does it have to be colored? I know it's pretty, but all of my other plugins are happy to be monochrome.

Great contribution, overall!
