WP Quick Deploy

WP Quick Deploy allows you to pick your favorite plugins and install them at once without hassle.

WP Quick Deploy is one of the easiest ways to get many of the top plugins loaded after a fresh install of WordPress. There's no need to manually hunt for them again, you can simply install them in bulk.

It also allows you to activate/deactivate, delete and update your plugins.

With recent update it also connects to popular WordPress rising stars list to present fresh new plugins every week.

    Thanks for this plugin, also just installed it to do a few tests.

    I think it's a cool plugin and will probably be doing a review of it in the next coming days or so. I did like the comment from AJ Morris about premium plugins. To maybe have the option to save URL's and then run from that file as well.

    The plugin's settings should be under the "plugins" sections and not somewhere under "settings"

    (Like plugin Central)

  4. Feb 7th, 2012 11:40 AM

    1. Love this plugin, it replaced the previous plugin central for me.
    2. Feature request: Import/Export of the plugin list as well as full control of the list (add/remove/update/add category etc) - which will control the plugins.ini file. (instead of that "suggest a plugin" - please give us control of the plugin list)
    3. Bug report: After adding this plugin: "Upper Menu for Twenty Eleven" it doesn't install?!
    4. Bug report: WP-Cirrus plugin installs nicely but then doesn't seem to know that it is already installed?!
    5. Bug report: Same with: "Block Bad Queries"

    Anyway, thanks for this superb plugin!

    Thank you for your plugins and great site/very informative.

    I installed and activated WP Quick Deploy --- (hostgator fantastico install/then updated to 3.3.1-- (also tried plugin central) and I get these error messages: "you do not have sufficient permissions" so I deactivated each. Couple of your others that I've installed seem okay based on what I can tell. (and yes, I am the admin of the site I'm working on)

    Possible conflicts w/ other security plugins maybe? (incl. BulletProof Security, Better WP Security, stuff that renames wp-content folder, prefixes, etc). I've used plugin central on another older blog and seems to still work, but not this one.

    Would appreciate any suggestions/possible fixes, whatever I might be doing wrong?

    Thanks and cheers!

    If i disable allow_url_fopen(), i had some errors.
    Someone told me to disable allow_url_fopen() for security reason.

    What do you think?

    Thanks for all your good works!!!! :-)

    Hey Vladimir,

    First off, excellent plugin. I've been considering building a tool similar to this for awhile, but I'd say your's fits the bill!

    If you're taking plugin suggestions (and don't mind a bit of shameless self-promotion), may I suggest my WP Password Generator plugin? I've found it to be really handy on multi-user sites as it takes care of generating strong account passwords (which users will probably change right away to "password1", but that's a bigger conversation) with one click.

    Thanks for the useful plugin... couple of comments/questions:

    1) Seems to be throwing an error in with WP_DEBUG set to true. Here is the message: http://pastebin.com/HFr4cxRk

    2) Any thoughts on this version of the plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-quick-deploy-revisited/

    Interesting Plugin, however I still wonder about why people in the age of information spend so much effort in HIDING information - the list of plugins I can see in WP admin could be much more helpful if there was at least one sentence describing what the plugin does.

  10. May 25th, 2011 8:40 PM

    Very nice plugin ... Thanks

    I think it will be much logical if you put WP Quick Deploy admin link under Plug-in , not under settings.


  11. May 21st, 2011 1:25 PM

    Thanks for the lovely plugin, i appreciate your hard work for making a great plugin for us.

    This Plugin is a great timesaver. Thank you! The services (e.g. ManageWP) and products you are providing are really awesome!

    Hi Vladimir.

    This sounds like a great plugin!

    I will not download and use it though, because there are plugins missing from the list, that I use. It would be great if it was possible to chose the plugins I wish to download.

    I was looking for a plugin management solution and ended up checking your plugins (didn't know about QuickDeploy or Plugin Central, you were on my radar for quite some time thanks to other plugins like SEO Doctor, Snazzy Archives or Insights; all in all, great plugins - thanks!).

    However, this time it seems those two plugins related to plugins :) don't fit my needs, eh...but if I may suggest one direction of development (could be related more to your ManageWP service, I guess):

    * the possibility to build GROUPS of plugins based on one plugin's function (the way you are doing it with QuickDeploy). Administration related plugins, Frontend related, Tools, Social, Editing related and so on...right now, WP has built-in grouping related to the status of a plugin (active/inactive/upgrade available) but this does help only partially especially when you have to deal with a lot of plugins.
    * the WP administrator should have the possibility to define such groups then to add plugins into the right groups (drag & drop would be nice, heh)
    * per group bulk tasks like activate/deactivate/upgrade/note-to-self/maintenance-scheduler-reminder etc...

    I was quite amazed no one wrote a plugin to do that by now...as it is of great help in managing those hordes of plugins we have nowadays; and also doesn't seem to be too complicated as it is only a logical grouping similar to the one already built in.

    Hope this idea would get you on the drawing board for yet another great plugin :)

      Hi Alin

      Wp Quick Deploy has groups and you can add/create your own. It does not have per group bulk tasks like deactivate/upgrade but I do not see that as useful.

        Jan 24th, 2011 3:08 AM

        Oh, that's great if one can define groups with WP-QD. I'll give it a spin than.
        I find bulk actions useful for a couple of particular tasks - mainly related to performance testing in various configurations*.

        *as not all plugins are created equal even if they implement the same task, I have to run sets of tests to identify the best plugins (or combinations of plugins) for a certain functionality (and sometimes I need more than one plugin to build one required functionality).
        This is where the drag'n'drop will come in handy (to be able to change various plugin configurations (read groups) quickly.

  15. Jan 5th, 2011 12:09 AM

    Vladimir -

    Thank you for ANOTHER great contribution (when are you making video games? I read you wanted to develop - if your plugins are this great...and your themes...here's hoping)...

    Re: Plugin Central vs. WP Quick Deploy - it seems Plugin Central does what WP QD does and then some, so if I have premium plugins like SEOPressor or something, then would I simply be better served with Plugin Central?

    I'm assuming I don't need both (YES I am NOT a geek)....?

    Thanks again...OH! I tried looking for your SEO Doctor browser extension - I keep getting a 404 from your blog. Why is that? Is it still available?


    • Jan 6th, 2011 11:48 PM

      Neither plugin works with premium plugins that update separately of WP.org

      They are similar and I would say WP Quick Deploy is more specialized version of Plugin Central

      My next endeavor will be in the reign of gaming, you got that right ;)

  16. Dec 23rd, 2010 12:30 PM

    Am I right if I say that adding my own fav plugins to the plugins.ini I could choose them from the list? Lot of those listed are not my 1st choice so I'd like to fork it with my own.

    • Dec 23rd, 2010 12:34 PM

      Yep you can, just add them in existing groups or create a new one of your own. Feel free to suggest them as well

  17. Dec 21st, 2010 4:30 PM

    It would be cool if you could somehow do premium plugins as well. Like allow us to add the plugin name, and maybe a location of the zip file. Currently I have all my plugins in a folder, say http://mydomain.com/plugins-source/ and have a bash script install them. But if I could add the URL to the ini file, I could then add Gravity Forms, Event Espresso, etc to the list. I can take care of keeping those up to date through my "repository" or through WP's usual means.

    Other than that. Great idea for this!! Having moved back from the Rails/Ruby world, I've been thinking of how to incorporate utility plugins like this. Great work!!

    • Dec 21st, 2010 4:57 PM

      You can use another plugin of mine, namely Plugin Central for that exact purpose.

  18. Dec 20th, 2010 4:29 PM


    May I ask then, are these plugin downloads not being downloaded directly from the repository?

    • Dec 20th, 2010 4:30 PM

      They are downloaded from repository!

      • Dec 20th, 2010 4:31 PM

        What I meant with internal repository is just a list of suggested plugins.

      • Dec 20th, 2010 4:33 PM

        OK. I apologize for the confusion. You said...

        "I'd like to avoid any interaction with the WP plugin repository as it's slow and the search results are often not accurate. I prefer to build the 'internal' repository through user suggestions"

        I know now you were just referring to searching, not the actual downloading of plugins...

  19. Dec 20th, 2010 3:52 PM

    Great implementation, I've seen this feature requested over and over again in the WP world. As many others do I'm sure, I keep a folder with all the plugins I install when first developing a site. I'll have to take a deeper look at the ones you're including here, but I'm sure it will help to streamline my process even more.

    Thanks for providing this Vladimir!

    And you know I can't comment without adding a feature request question...Is there any possibility that this plugin could contain a search so after it's installed, one could easily tick what they need from your included list but also search the plugin repository and add those to the list before installing them all?

    • Dec 20th, 2010 4:25 PM

      Thanks. I'd like to avoid any interaction with the WP plugin repository as it's slow and the search results are often not accurate. I prefer to build the 'internal' repository through user suggestions for most used WP plugins, even an internal rating system. I like that route much better as it is more personal, and more direct.

Have your say
