Plugin Organizer is a plugin that I developed to help with a project where plugins were conflicting with each other.  It has grown much farther than that since it’s initial release. Plugin Organizer can be very difficult for inexperienced wordpress users to comprehend. But if you take the time to set it up correctly using the FAQ and documentation pages your site will see a significant benefit in load time and resources used. It allows you to change the load order of your plugins and decide which ones load on each page.  If you need one plugin to load before another or to only load one on specific pages then this is the plugin to do it.  To download the plugin please go to the WordPress plugin page.




Group and Order Plugins

This is a screenshot of the Plugin Organizer Group and Order plugins page. Here you can change the load order of your plugins by dragging and dropping them in the order you want them to load. You can also add the plugin in the list to plugin groups. Those groups can be used on the various pages to disable plugins by selecting that group.

Set Global Plugins

This is a screenshot of the Plugin Organizer Global Plugins page.  Here you can disable a plugin for the entire site.  This allows you to turn it on for just the pages where you need it. Just drag the plugins from the left and drop them on the containers to the right.

Set plugins for search results

This is a screenshot of the Plugin Organizer Search Plugins page. Here you can set the plugins that will load on the search results page of your site.

Set plugins for post types

This is a screenshot of the Plugin Organizer Post Type Plugins page. Here you can set the plugins that will load on all of the posts that match the selected post type. This way you can set all the plugins for posts on one page.

Individual Posts

This is a screenshot of the WordPress page edit screen after Plugin Organizer is activated for that post type.  You can disable or enable plugins from here.  This meta box will be added to all post types that are selected on the settings screen.

    …..(forgot to add… I added this to stop the error, but I don’t know enough about the plugin to just make such edits…. )
    ===== this =======
    function user_logged_in($login, $user) {

    foreach($user->roles as $key=>$role) {
    setcookie(‘po_assigned_roles[‘.$key.’]’, $role, 0 ,”/”);

    ==== used to be this ======

    function user_logged_in($login, $user) {
    foreach($user->roles as $key=>$role) {
    setcookie(‘po_assigned_roles[‘.$key.’]’, $role, 0 ,”/”);

      I just released version 9.2. It adds a check to the function that tries to get the current user if the second argument is not set. If the current user can’t be retrieved then it should continue without an error.

    First, I think your Plugin Organizer is a great plugin…. and provides a much needed service… Second, I am getting an error in my logs and was hoping for some insight….

    Seems like it’s trying to authenticate a user at some stage and not getting the variable it needs or is asking for something too soon…… . Anyhow, any insight would be a big help….

    (Very comfortable coding..if that’s the direction)

    [04-Jul-2017 14:49:20 UTC] PHP Warning: Missing argument 2 for PluginOrganizer::user_logged_in() in /mnt/stor13-wc1-dfw1/625116/ on line 98

    Again, serious love this plugin and could easily see any WP user with a larger site and a care for website performance…. finding a great deal of value in it……

  3. Thank you so much for plugin, I donated a small amount

    I was wondering with this plugin is there a way i can change the order that the plugin’s appear on a post page.

    I have tried to read the comments to see if anyone has asked this and i am just trying to find out the answer.

    If you can please let me know.

      You can change the order that they are loaded. Not the order that they appear on the page.

    Wasn’t aware that 3.71 fixed the issue. Figured there was a major architectural change in WordPress that would have required the plugin to be revamped. Thanks for the update.

      The new version is going back to using a separate table to store the plugins and I’m thinking of optimizing the queries with hashing. Seems to be working good so far. I’ll probably be able to get it out next week.
