Owning a website is quite time-consuming. You spend a lot of time optimizing different features, going through new updates, and activating plugins, alongside planning your content strategy and ensuring your visitors have a great user experience.
Many website owners have a list of plugins that they need to install and activate on their sites. However, installing them one by one can take a lot of time and is simply tedious. Luckily, we have some great news! This whole process can be easily avoided by using the plugin we will talk about in the following words; WP Reset! The plugin has the option to create a collection of plugins you wish to download and activate, and this can be done with just one click. We will review this option in more detail below.
What is WP Reset?
WP Reset is one of those plugins you simply need to have! In short, the plugin helps you reset your WordPress site to previous settings with just one click. It is great to have it, especially if you are often testing and debugging your site. You can back up your site and, if after an update it doesn’t work, you can easily restore it to previous settings with just one click. It’s effortless!
To install the plugin, you can find it here or go to your WP admin site, go to Plugins and click on Add New. Search for WP Reset in the wordpress.com repository and click on download, and then activate.
Features of the Plugin
This plugin comes with a range of useful features, such as 1-click install, remove demo data, white label option, nuclear reset, and automatic snapshots. You can manage your licenses and sites, complete additional purchases, download plugins, and check and update your profile information from your dashboard, making it very simple to use.
A handy feature, and the one we will review in more detail, is collections. This option helps you create a list of plugins you need to install, put them in a collection and install them with just one click. It will save you hours of work. You can do this on any site you have, whether a new site you are just creating or an existing one.
To create collections, simply choose Collections from the list, and under New collection, click on Install collection. WP Reset will take care of the rest. There, you can name your collections and then click on Add New Collection button to confirm your choice. Also, your collections are stored in the cloud, so you can access them from anywhere and any site. You can create as many collections as you want.
Once you create a collection, it will be empty. Then, you need to add plugins and themes. To add new plugins, click on the desired collection, and then click on Add new plugin or theme.
On the left side of your collection, you can see Install and activate collection. To delete plugins, you can click on Delete installed plugins and themes, then install and activate collection. This process will get rid of your old items and install new ones from the list.
Basically, this plugin can be your safety net as you can create automatic snapshots of your site before you make any new changes. That way, you will have a safety point to restore your site to in case something goes wrong. The plugin can also reset your site’s database to default values without modifying any of the files. It will delete customizations and content, but you can also choose specific parts you wish to restore.
A nuclear reset option will delete all your posts, pages, comments, and media entries. Still, it will not delete media files, plugins, themes, uploads, site address, site language, and search engine visibility settings. You can choose to reactive the plugin in the post-reset options. You can undo the reset (if you did a snapshot before). To restore the settings, just click on restore the snapshot.
The emergency recovery is a standalone script that is independent of any WP files and can disable or enable all plugins, current themes, check core files to see if some are missing and edit the site and WP address.
Moreover, you don’t need to do a whole reset, but there are several different options for doing a partial reset of your site. For example, you can delete transients (deletes all transient related database entries), delete uploads (deletes all files and folders), delete plugins (deletes all plugins, except for WP Reset), reset theme options, and delete themes.
With the automatic snapshots option, you can copy all WP database tables that are saved in the currently used database. Go to your admin page to do a snapshot, and at the top, click on Create snapshot. You can create as many snapshots as you need and you can offload your snapshots to a cloud.
Lastly, you can remove any demo data so it will not take up space on your site. If you want, you can also enable the white label option so all the logos and links will disappear, and you can make the plugin seem like a part of your website.
The plugin can be used by anyone who has a website, even if you are a beginner. It is one of the most beginner-friendly plugins as you don’t need to have coding knowledge to use it. It is straightforward and simple to use. Also, you cannot accidentally delete your site as the plugin has several fail-safe mechanisms. You will need to confirm all destructive actions and double-confirm the reset actions in two different ways.
There is a free and premium option. The free plan gives you access to some of the features: site reset, reset theme option, delete themes and plugins, clean uploads folder, empty custom tables, delete htaccess files, manually create snapshots, and access to community support.
With premium plans, you have access to all of these features and a lot more. There are three different premium plans you can get. The personal plan costs £39 per year, and you get a license for one site with 1 WPR cloud site license. The team plan is the most popular at $79 per year. You get five site licenses, 5 WPR cloud site licenses, and access to over 25 tools. The agency plan costs $149 per year, and you get it for 100 sites and20 WPR cloud site licenses. You also have access to all features, and you get the white label option.
We hope you found this plugin useful. As you can see, it is quite easy to create collections of plugins you wish to install, and this can save you a lot of time.
