Control which plugins load wordpress
WordPress is a popular content management system (CMS) that is used by millions of people all over the world. It’s free, open-source software, so it’s easy to install and manage. However, like any other software, there are some plugins that can make your life a lot easier. In this article, we’ll take a look at how you can control which plugins load when you first log in to your WordPress site using the Administrator Accounts feature.
What is a Plugin?
WordPress is a website creation and management system. Plugins are small programs that extend the functionality of WordPress. Most plugins are written in PHP, but there are also plugins written in other languages, including Ruby on Rails and Java.
Plugins can be downloaded from the official WordPress website or from third-party websites. When you install a plugin, it adds new features to your WordPress website. You can control which plugins load using the Settings screen in WordPress. To see the list of installed plugins, go to Dashboard > Themes > Plugins and then click on the Plugin Installer icon next to the name of the plugin you want to see. You can also search for plugins by keyword on the WordPress website.
When you install a plugin, it automatically adds it to the list of plugins that WordPress uses. If you want to disable a plugin, you can remove it from the list of installed plugins by going to Dashboard > Themes > Plugins and unchecking its checkbox. You can also delete a plugin from your computer by clicking on its filename and selecting Delete from the drop-down menu that appears.
How do I determine which Plugins to Load?
If you’re looking to control which plugins load on your WordPress site, there are a few ways to go about it.
First and simplest way is to use the plugin’s settings page. This is usually located in the plugin’s main menu or within the plugin’s sub-menu.
Next, you can use the “WP_Plugins” global variable to determine which plugins to load. To do this, add the following line of code to your theme’s functions.php file:
This will enqueue the myplugin script and myfile file within WordPress. If you want to load only specific plugins, you can use the wp_enqueue_script function with a comma-separated list of plugin names as its first argument:
How to Disable Plugins
If you want to disable specific plugins, you can do so through the WordPress admin. To access the plugins screen, click on “Appearance” in the main menu and then “Plugins.” On the plugins screen, click on the “Disable” button next to the plugin you want to disable. After disabling the plugin, you’ll need to restart WordPress for the changes to take effect.
The WordPress Codex has a great post on controlling which plugins load. There are several ways to do this, but the best way is to use the WP_PLUGIN_INSTALLED_WITH filter. This filter allows you to specify which plugins are loaded by default. You can also use the WP_PLUGIN_DIRS and WP_PLUGIN_URLS filters to control which plugins are downloaded and from where.
