Plugin Mover


If too many plugins appear in the WordPress admin sometimes the question appear if there is a way to move them out of sight without deleting them.
This plugin is able to do this task.
Define a folder under Tools -> Plugin Mover and then go to plugins admin page and choose to move plugins to your defined folder.
Afterwards you can see them by ftp in the defined folder.


  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory of your site


  1. Upload the zip file through the New Plugin upload functionality


  1. Download through the plugin install functionality of WordPress.

  2. Activate through the Plugins menu in WordPress


Is there a way to set another folder as my plugin folder?

Good question.
Go to wp-config.php and put in these

define( ‘WP_PLUGIN_DIR’, $_SERVER[‘DOCUMENT_ROOT’] . ‘/blog/wp-content/plugins’ );

define( ‘WP_PLUGIN_URL’, ‘’);
