In the admin panel when a plugin is deactivated it will remain in the "Recently Active" status column for 7 days.
I would like to know what to edit to change the time frame from 7 days to forever. I.E. Deactivated plugins will remain identified forever.
This minimal hack would allow me to deactivate all "admin~maintenance" plugins that only need to be used by the admin and next time they are needed, then clicking on the "Recently Active" status and selecting all, they could be turned back on in a single action.
I would also like to have the ability to deactivate the group of them with a "single action" rather than having to individually select each one, but I realize adding that feature will require some development.
SO THE CONCEPT IS
Develop a plugin that allows user to create multiple identifying statuses that can be assigned by users to each plugin with new statuses displaying above the plugin page as column headers like like "Recently Active" does.
Clicking a plugin status column will toggle all plugins with that status OFF~DEACTIVATE and clicking the status column again will toggle all the plugins with that status ON~ACTIVATE.
A drop down select of available plugin statuses might appear in each plugin description row so the user can go through their plugins and assign one or more statuses to each plugin. The same plugin might be assigned multiple statuses.
For example a Network Super Admin might have several plugins that only he/she uses and would like to Activate when they log into the dashboard and turn off when they log out of the dashboard so they could assign those plugins a status X and then turning all of them ON/OFF would be a single click operation. TIME SAVED!
A site Admin might have several plugins that he/she uses and one of their plugins might also be the same as the Network Super Admin uses and the site admin could assign status Y to all plugins in their group.
Any plugin might have several statuses assigned to it with the goal being to ACTIVATE/DEACTIVATE all plugins with the same status in a single action.
Does that make sense?
Anyone know of an existing solution?
