wet_plugout: Disable/enable all plugins with the click of one button

wet_plugout adds an extension tab with one powerful button: Disable all active plugins / Re-enable them again. Might come handy in case of plugin conflicts.

More information and download.

Woops! Got it!
Thanks, Robert! This is a true relief in the every day life of a burdened plugin tester ;)

Re: wet_plugout: Disable/enable all plugins with the click of one button

In the code I find elseif (strlen($plugins) > 250) { // approx. max prefs length. Does 250 refer to plugins as “piece of software”? I have 30 active ones, but 48 installed.

250 refers to the added length of all active plugins’ names. I use a prefs field to store the set of active plugins which is limited at 255 characters.

Does new tab is really need? May be make enable\disable plugins by enabling\disabling your plugin? Like rvm_maintance works :)

I’d grant you password access if you’d install an extra table, large enough to store the necessary information. ;)

Is there any advantage in using this plug-in instead of this preference?

Re: wet_plugout: Disable/enable all plugins with the click of one button

Yup: we haven’t got no batch disabling yet :)

Edit: The best is yet to come, this is just the minor difference. The major one is, you’re done faster as it takes the burden to klick 37 times in order to disable 37 plugins (Couldn’t test it yet, does it except itself from disabling?)
Second major difference: after you’ve found the culprit, it reenables exactly all these plugins that were previously enabled with just one click, this way saving another 37 alright … 36 clicks, sparing you from comparing screenshots or handwritten lists with your plugins’ windows settings.
And if you ever had to dis/re-enable a list of plugins that’s longer than your screen can hold and saw these damn links you were just clicking on jumping back down again and again into the invisible depths of your graphic card’s memory, then you can really appreciate, what this plugin does for you.

Alright, I’ll retire from singing my ode …

Just one more thing, did you give it a shortcut link to the plugins tab, Robert?

Oh my…

v0.2 lifts the maximum plugin limit, adds a “Manage plugins” link.
