Utilizing the “Download All” Tools

rU mDbRs9 Ft9VIh69II49ZP9euXcEFI09KtX zA139iW41XCYKUAocgX4EPLZWwcSfJbcSJl XVE0I1A3rlc3nYL39RK35QO3cw21IqiGq4npp Cdcs CsLz4jwKrhaiNbCjNRKlEqoqTXMjqPfHjA

The “Download Plugins and Themes from Dashboard” plugin goes beyond individual downloads. It offers a powerful “Tools” section that allows you to download all your installed plugins or themes with a single click! This functionality is perfect for creating complete backups or migrating your website to another environment.

Important Note

Before using the “Download All” tools, especially if you have a large number of plugins or themes, it’s crucial to consider your WordPress memory limits. The plugin advises you to potentially increase these limits for a smooth download process. You can find instructions on increasing memory limits through various resources online.

Accessing the “Download All” Tools

  • Navigate to your WordPress admin panel.
  • In the left-hand sidebar, click on “Settings.”
  • Scroll down and locate the “Download Plugins and Themes” section.
  • Click on the “Settings” link within this section.

Downloading All Plugins (with Limitations)

  • Under the “Tools” section, you’ll find a button labeled “Download all.”
  • Clicking this button will initiate the download of a ZIP file containing all your currently installed plugins.
  • It’s important to note that this download will not include “Must-Use” and “Drop-in” plugins due to their inherent functionality within WordPress.
  • However, you can still download these plugins individually from the “Plugins” page within your admin panel.

Downloading All Themes

Similar to the plugin download option, the “Tools” section also provides a “Download all” button for themes. Clicking this button will create a ZIP file containing all your installed themes, excluding any bundled themes that come pre-packaged with your WordPress installation.

Benefits of Using “Download All”

  • Quick and Easy Backups: This feature allows you to create a comprehensive backup of all your plugins and themes with a single click, streamlining your backup process.
  • Streamlined Website Migration: When migrating your WordPress website to a new environment, using “Download All” can simplify the process by providing a complete archive of your plugins and themes.
