Plugins come in second place in terms of slowing down your WordPress site after web hosting. Disabling the plugin or preventing it from loading in areas where it isn’t needed can often mitigate this. We’ll show you how to use the Plugin Organizer to make your WordPress site load faster in this article.

Plugin overuse is a common concern, and we’ve answered it in this post. WordPress security and the potential impact of plugins on speed and performance are two of the top concerns for most users.
Good WordPress plugins are designed to only be loaded when you need them. Check out our infographic to learn more about how WordPress handles plugin loading (behind the scenes).
By not loading inactive plugins, WordPress ensures that your website runs as quickly as possible. It does, however, load all currently active plugins and execute their code as required.

WordPress Plugin Organizer: A Powerful Site Accelerator
If you’re using a lot of plugins, you may only need some of them on certain pages, posts, or post types. The front-end of your website should not be affected by plugins you only use in the WordPress admin area.
There are several things you can do with WordPress Plugin Organizer:
plugins can be enabled or disabled selectively in accordance with the url
Plugins for user roles can be enabled or disabled.
Plugins can be enabled or disabled based on the type of post.
Put plugins in a different order when they’re loaded
Disable all plugins except for the ones you absolutely need.
Let’s see how the Plugin Organizer can help WordPress run faster.
Managing WordPress Plugins Actively with WordPress Plugin Organizer
To begin, download and install the Plugin Organizer plugin. See our step-by-step guide to installing a WordPress plugin for more information.
The Plugin Organizer is a powerful plugin. Do not underestimate its potential. Disabling plugins or rearranging their order can lead to unexpected behaviour, such as your website becoming inaccessible. Before you disable or reorder any plugins, make a complete WordPress backup.
When you’re ready, navigate to the Plugin Organizer » Settings page and make any necessary adjustments there.
Plugin settings for an organiser
In this section, we’ll look at the various options and see which ones should be turned on.
Matching URLs in an Uncertain Way
You can enable or disable plugins on child URLs using this option. This means that any changes you make will have an impact on URLs and any others that follow.
The URL Protocol Should Be Ignored
By default, this setting is not enabled. Allows plugins to ignore the http and https parts of URLs. Having SSL enabled on your WordPress site makes this feature even more useful.
Don’t worry about URL-related arguments
You can now ignore URL arguments by selecting this checkbox. You can see an example of this here: is an argument-filled URL. Only URLs with arguments benefit from having this option enabled. In most cases, it’s best to leave it unturned.
Do you want plugin load order to be able to be changed only by network administrators?
The Network Administrator will be the only one who can rearrange plugin order if you’re running a WordPress multisite network. If you run a WordPress multisite network, you should definitely enable this feature.
Support for Individual Post Types
You can enable or disable plugins for specific post types using this option. A good use for this feature is to limit the use of plugins to certain post types.
Automatic Slash Trailing
Depending on your WordPress permalink settings, this option adds or removes the trailing slash from plugin filter URLs.
Plugin Loading with Preferences
Selective loading of plugins is possible even if the plugins are disabled in plugin settings. If you want to enable or disable plugins for specific content types, you must enable this feature.
Adding a must-use plugin or mu-plugin is required for this feature to work properly. It’s possible to add MU plugins to any WordPress site, and they’re automatically activated when installed. As long as it doesn’t succeed, you’ll have to create the MU plugin yourself. This will be demonstrated in a later section of the article.
Loading Mobile Plugins Only When Needed
Mobile browsers now have the ability to selectively enable and disable plugins.
Loading only certain types of admin plugins
If you only want certain plugins to load in the WordPress admin area, you can enable this setting.
Role-based Plugin Disabling
You can disable a plugin based on a user’s role by using this option. Select the user roles you want to use in the next box after you enable this option.
If you make any changes, don’t forget to click the save settings button.
In order for Plugin Organizer to function properly, it requires a MU plugin. If the plugin is unable to automatically add it to your website, you will be required to do so manually.
Find out whether the plugin has created the MU plugin successfully. Plugins » Installed Plugins is the place to go. Clicking on the Must-Use link will bring up a list of all the MU plugins currently installed on your site.
Must make use of WordPress plugins that have already been installed
In this case, the plugin organiser has failed to create the file and you will have to do it manually yourself.
To begin, open an FTP client (such as FileZilla) or the File Manager in your cPanel account.
The next step is to navigate to the /wp-content/mu-plugins/ folder and activate the plugin. If your /wp-content/folder does not contain a mu-plugins folder, you must create one.
PluginOrganizerMU.class.php can be found in the plugin’s lib/ folder, which can be found at /wp-content/plugins/plugin-organizer/lib/.
Plug-in for the MU
After that, navigate to the /wp-content/mu-plugins/ folder on your computer and upload the plugin file there.
Download the plugin organiser mu-plugin package
You can now use the Plugin Organizer and this file to better manage your plugins. You’re free to carry on configuring the plugin at this point.
Install and Configure the Plugin
It’s possible to activate plugins with Plugin Organizer, but they will remain disabled. In order to control which plugins are active and which are not, navigate to the Plugin Organizer » Global Plugins page and make your selections.
Disable all plugins at once.
On the left, you’ll see a list of all the plugins you’ve installed. Plugins that are currently active will be shown in bold and at the top of the page. You can simply drag and drop a plugin to the Disable column to make it non-operational.
The plugins will be disabled, but they will not be deactivated.
In the plugin settings, you can enable the plugin again for specific post types, individual posts or pages, and individual URLs. We’ll go over each of these in more detail later on in the article.
Plugins on the Search Results Page can be enabled or disabled.
You must go to the Plugin Organizer » Search Results page to disable or enable plugins on search results.
Disable third-party plugins on the search results page to improve performance.
To disable a plugin, simply drag it from the left column to the disable column on this screen. The disable column has various checkboxes, as you’ll see. To disable the plugin, click on the box next to it. In other words, putting a plugin in the ‘Disabled Standard’ box makes it inaccessible to everyone on all of your web pages.
If you’ve previously disabled a plugin globally but now want it to appear in search results, all you have to do is drag and drop it back into the available plugins column from the disabled plugins column.
Add-ons on the results page can be enabled
Enable/Disable Custom Post Type Plugins based on Conditions
Visit the Plugin Organizer » Post Type Plugins page to manage which plugins work with which post types.
Plugins for post types can be enabled or disabled.
To begin, select the post type to which you’d like to make the modifications. Next, drag and drop plugins from the available items to the disabled items columns.
The plugin you disabled in Global Plugins page can also be made active by dragging it from the Disabled column to the list of available options.
Change the order in which plugins are loaded by putting them in a group.
WordPress loads active plugins alphabetically by default. If you have plugins that depend on each other’s code, using the alphabetical order may lead to conflicts.
A plugin file apple.php, for example, may require the loading of zebra.php before apple.php can function properly if it relies on functions in the zebra plugin.
It’s possible to manually rearrange and organise plugins with Plugin Organizer. Keep in mind that this could render your website inaccessible if not done correctly.
Visit the Plugin Organizer » Group and Order Plugins page to rearrange the plugin load order.
The plugin organiser lists your plugins alphabetically by default, but you can reorder them with a simple drag-and-drop operation. The plugin organiser
Grouping plugins is also possible via the top-level drop-down menu, which is titled “Create new group.” This is followed by selecting which plugins you’d like to include in your new group.
Organizing plugins into a folder
When you’ve finished with it,
