Main purpose of Meks Quick Plugin Disabler is to quickly find out if any recent is’sue you are having on your website is related to the one of currently active plugins.
It is made for developers, techical ’support engineers, as well as for regular WordPress users. Sometimes, u’sually after updating your plugins, themes or WordPress installation, strange is’sues may appear and mess the things up. This plugin provides a really neat way to check the problem.
Huge time saver when debugging websites with lots of plugins
Neat solution instead of forced plugin deactivation via FTP (i.e. changing the plugins folder name)
This is a great plug-in, making it very easy to one-click disable all active plugins, and one-click re-activate them.
My one concern, before testing it, was whether I'd be able to individually enable a few plugins, and still be able to later one-click enable all the others that were previously enabled. When troubleshooting it's ofter necessary to have a least a few plugins active for the process, either because that's the plug-in your trying to find compatibility issues with, or because you need that plugin running in order to even use the site as intended (like WooCommerce on a ecommerce site).
The short answer is, yes, you can one-by-one activate plugins as needed, and then bulk re-activate the remaining plugins.
Where has this tool been my whole life?
It makes troubleshooting faster instead of me manually “renaming” the plug-in folder.
I used to save a PDF of my active plugins just to keep track, but with this tool I can simply click on or off.
As a technical support engineer, I have to check and troubleshoot many issues for users. As there may have many plugins installed on user's site, I can not but check deactivating all the plugins once. So, it saves my time.
Thank a lot.
