How to Determine What Changes a Plugin or Theme Made to the Site After Activation
Installing a plugin (or theme) means that you are entirely trusting your site into the hands of their developers. There are no restrictions on what the code you're putting on the site can do. Regardless of where you're installing plugins from, official WP repository or some shady site, you'll be left wondering - what changes did a plugin make to my site?
How to Quickly Debug Complicated WordPress Plugin and Theme Activation Procedures
As WordPress plugins and themes get more complicated, it's becoming more and more challenging to debug their installation procedures. For simpler plugins, installation and activation events involve setting some default options, if even that. For larger plugins, it involves much more: Creating custom tables and populating them with demo content.
Would you recommend WP Reset to a friend?
Morning everyone! 👋🏻 WP Reset has been our internal development tool for years. About a year ago we decided to release it into the wild. It turned out to be a great decision as we now have over 150,000 users who save time with it while developing, debugging and testing. Why would I want to reset my WP site!? I don't get it A fair question :) On a "normal", production site you obviously don't want to do that, but when you're testing themes, plugins and various options garbage gets left behind so it's not ideal to continue using that installation for anything before you reset it, which takes one click and a few seconds. I'm a developer, does it really save time? We're developers too, and that's why we made it - to save time! If you're testing a new activation procedure for a plugin or theme, you can repeat the process over and over on a clean WP installation in a matter of seconds. No need to mess with files or DB - reset and you get to test again. If you can't test on a clean installation, because you need something customized prior to testing - no problem! Create a database snapshot and restore to it every time. As easy as that. We're thrilled that so many people find WP Reset useful and hope you'll find it useful too 😊
