  1. I can't get the 'Whole Plugins Backup' to work. It generates the file but won't let me download it. I tried to find it in FTP but it's nowhere. You should make the plugin generate a string of all plugins that you can copy and paste to a friend so they can copy and paste and install all the same plugins you have...

      HI

      when you use the text box above it does create a mpi file with all the plugin entries you make in it and you can use the mpi files for friends and others. Plugin backup is stored in wp-contents/uploads/mpi_logs/

      Download it from there.
      Let me know if you still face the issues.

    Hello
    From what I can tell this plugin doesn't work with multisite. Am I correct?

  4. Hello. I'm visually impaired so cannot see the screen shot. I listened to the youtube video though and from what I understand I have to type every name of every plugin or every url of every plugin I want to export to the mpi file? May I suggest there be an easier way to have it do this from wp-content/plugins as an option? Thanks.

  5. Oh, I forgot to add, When you upload a zip file of yoru plguins directory, is it possible to add an install and activate button option as well, so I don't have to go to plugins page and activate all 45 of them for example. I'm one for consistency. lol!

    Take care. and enjoy the plugin.

  6. Yeah trying this again it does not create the *.mpi file. I put the name in the box, put the. list of plugins and hit enter but I get the message that no files are available to download. Thoughts?

    I'm just not gettin' it. I'm a pretty savvy user of these things and this plugin is just not straightforward.

    I simply want to export ... and then import to another site. Gaaaahhh. Why so hard?

    I export to a zip file (rather, that is what this plugin exports)

    And later when click on "install plugsins" (doesn't matter which one) ... it allows me to specify the same zip file ... it crunches away. Then ... nothing. nada.

    And that's that.

    Looks like a great idea for a plugin ... with that tiny flaw. that it doesn't work at all ; )

    Please advise!! (I'd be happy to revise my remarks and add praise if I've missed some obvious button or instruction ... but I have looked and looked!)

    Thanks!

      Hi,

      When you export the plugin backup file, it ask you to import the same backup file in the section saying "Upload backup file to install plugins" and then click on the button install plugins it will install the plugins of which you have taken the backup in your another website.

      Just make sure you have installed the multi plugin installer plugin in your new website where you want to install your backup plugins

      Please let us know if you are still having the issue.

      Thanks

        I found the issue(s)

        1. Main issue: The exported plugin zip file was too large to be re-imported. I saw there was a 32M limit - which is fine - but how about a message telling me the file is too large, so I know what the heck is going on?

        2. 70% of my plugins were deactivated (sometimes this is the best way of saving plugins that I intend on using or testing in the future). This constituted the bulk of the large output file. Perhaps there should be an option to only export ACTIVE plugins.

        3. The message telling me that the plugins were indeed imported. Wow - way too subtle and hidden. I missed it 3 times before I realized I had imported.

        So ,,, I was able to get it working (on a basic level, not all the other features which I have not been able to get working). It's a well needed utility. Thank you.

You can compare the features of light and pro version of the plugin here

    Hi Looks as if you might have to program escapes for the plugin names that contain special characters like i.e.
    'XML Sitemap & Google News Feeds' - The plugin cam back with a 'not found' message, even though this is available at WP.
    Otherwise: GREAT little helper Tks!

      Hi,

      we have just checked about the issue that you have specified in the plugin,
      actually there are two ways of installing the plugins from the WordPress.org either by the plugin name or by its url on the WordPress.org.
      So if you'll install it by its URL the plugin gets successfully installed. Although there seems to be some issue of special characters,
      If we do the same by plugin name. we'll try to omit it in the upcoming version of the plugin.

      Thanks for letting us know about it.
