WordPress Themes Blog Oh! Blog

Aren’t you tired of logging into your FTP control panel or using your FTP client to upload your plugin files whenever you want to install a new plugin?

Well, I definitely was getting very tired, so I went ahead and found this really cool solution. Of course, this is another plugin that you have to install using your FTP, but this will be the very last time that you use the FTP. The plugin is called “Plugin Central” and it actually works by allowing you to install other plugins directly through your WordPress dashboard.

After you activate the Plugin Central, you will find an additional panel in your WordPress dashboard that will list some of your already installed plugins, and also giving you an option to update them to the latest versions. Plugin Central lets you update your existing plugins one by one or all at a time.

Another helpful feature that I really like about this plugin is that it lets you install any new plugin by its name or the exact zip URL. This is handy because sometimes you might not remember the website where you got a particular plugin from but just remember its name. If you enter the plugin name (even if its partial) that you want to install, the search will try to locate that specific plugin on the Internet and if available, download it for you in your plugins folder. After this, all you need to do is activate the plugin from the plugins list of your wp-admin.

It also has a multiple plugin install feature that allows you to move your plugins from one blog to another. Concludingly, I would say that Plugin Central does save you some precious time, and of course, makes it easy for the WordPress users to locate any plugin they want. So, why not give it a go…

And for all you fun lovers, here is something I found during a stumble spree! 🙂

    Switch on, meter the single-component/double-component polyurethane/epoxy glue and transport it to multi-valve linkage dispensing device (invention patent No.:817297) which will dispense the glue in homogeneous linear form, and meanwhile, autonomously control atomized water to realize water excitation.
    Pump out the material packed in a 1 ton or 200L packing barrel with a barrel emptying pump, transport it to a thermostatic material barrel with liquid level display and upper and lower limit alarming function and feed the material by automatically controlling charge pump through upper-and-lower-limit liquid level meter. The metering system transports the thermostatic raw material to the aerial drainage actuator. When the system is turned off, the material will flow back to the material barrel; when the spraying and cementing process starts, multi-valve linkage dispensing device begins to dispense glue. The distance between the glue lines is about 15mm, which shall be specifically designed according to needs.
    When the spraying and cementing ends, the dispensing head will reset automatically, the dispensing valve will be closed and the multi-valve linkage dispensing device will return to the initial position.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    Sorry, should also add – I’m using your V2 free theme bob and absolutely love it. Many paid templates are not as good as your free. Absolutely brilliant…. Thank you so much.

    I have searched a lot to find a plugin that can expand and collapse the categories. I’m unable to find such a plugin. It looks clean when you dont see a big pile of categories and sub-categories. It is also easy for a visitors to expand the categories to see the sub-categories without getting deeper into the blog.

    What would REALLY make this this killer plugin manager would be a way to save activated/deactivated plugins as named sets so that you could do troubleshooting and try different configurations. It would also be helpful when doing updated to WP. Basically, “save and name active set”, deactivate all plugins, upgrade WP, activate named set.
    Make sense?
    That, I would LOVE!

    Installing this anyway.

    Great find Jai – I will definitely use this plugin for my plugins on my WP blog page.

    Can I ask you a question – I always struggle to upload pictures to my posts without going through the FTP manual way. Is there another way to upload images to a post without going through FTP, then referencing it through img src?

    There is a flickr plugin, but those work well for large photos and less so for little 100×100 images…. If you’ve found one, let me know 😉
