Sick and tired of waiting for the page to load every time you want to change the order of a plugin or enable/disable a plugin?  That gets really old really fast.  Plugin Manager is meant to make life a little easier for all you Elgg plugin administrators.


  • Drag/Drop support for plugin administration
  • Enable/Disable multiple plugins at a time.
  • Specify plugin configuration via comma-separated list -- NEW IN 1.4!!!
  • Plugin settings get their own pages -- NEW IN 1.4!!!
  • Uses jQuery UI for theming.


Unzip the folder and drop the plugin in mod and enable it just like any other plugin!



  1. "Great....nice work...thanks for your work from Berlin/Germany!!!"
  2. "Fab feature, many thanks for making the plugin section so much more efficient, usable and fun.  Why was this never a core function?"
  3. "Drag+drop of plugin order is so very needed. Thanks."
  4. " exceptional plugin that [...] should be a core function..."
  5. "Works Well in Elgg 1.6.1, great work."
  6. "This what Elgg 1.8 should have with regard to UI and usability improvements. Great work. Thanks"
  7. "Working great on my 1.6.1 thanks for this."
  8. "GREEEAAAATTTT PLUGGGINNNNNN. THANKS A LOTTTT. :D I wonder why no one else posted any good comments before for this real time saving and needy plugin :("
  9. "Very cool, and works perfectly. Wouldn't want to be without it now."
  10. "Super plugin:)"
  11. "Thanks this is a great plug-in Evan!!"
  12. "Nice Plugin, a must have for any Admin. Thanks!!!"
  13. Life saving plugin!

Note: You'll have to click "save" every time you want to save your changes now.  I trust this is not too much of a burden, given the time you save not waiting for the page to reload. :)
