WP Documenter

Description

Ever start working on a site and wonder to yourself “Why is that plugin installed, what does it do?” Yeah, me too. This plugin enumerates the plugins and custom post types on a site, with a description blank for each. You can then output the descriptions to a PDF to give to your clients so that they know what’s installed and why.

Installation

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/wp-documenter directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.

The plugin does not work anymore and is not updated for several months. When installed on a fresh wordpres (5.9.3) is downloads the plugin but creates 2 plugins - Documenter and Documentor - The WP Documentor says there is an update - and no matter how often you update it remains on version 1.1.0. WP Documenter is already on version 2.0.0. The plugin doesn't work, as despite it being installed twice (with one directory), the plugin doesn't do anything. I guess the plugin is no longer maitnained - see issues post.

I love this plugin and am thrilled that you created it. It often happens that I (or my clients) for get WHY we have a particular plugin installed. WP Documentor lets me document each plugin in the install and WHY I am using it. Give this to your clients so they won’t start randomly deleting plugins that they don’t understand. Thanks for creating this!
