Viper’s Plugins Used


This plugin has been discontinued. It was last updated in 2005 and since then many other and better plugins have come along, including Lester “GamerZ” Chan’s WP-PluginsUsed. I would recommend using one of those plugins rather than this ancient one.


I was unhappy with the other “Plugins Used” plugin that was out there (pluginsUsedPlugin) for a number of reasons, mainly that it didn’t output the plugins in alphabetical order as well as I wanted more configuration options. So, I started over and wrote my own plugin.

This plugin allows you to list out all plugins that you have activated as a table or an unordered list. You can toggle displaying the version, author, and plugin description. You can also set custom plugin descriptions via the plugin’s options page.

For an example, click here.

What’s New in v1.1x:

  • Version 1.12 — I was modifying the content of the edit form POST contents and instead of saving the edited string to my own variable like I should have, I had been saving it to the $_POST array which was causing some issues with WordPress. Fixed that in this version.
  • Version 1.11 — error with the quotes in the HTML of the version column header in the table output.
  • Version 1.1 — a few bug fixes here and there, but mostly the addition of an options page where you can set custom plugin descriptions. This came as a result of a request by swordfish on the WordPress support forums.


See the readme.txt inside the ZIP for usage instructions. The instructions go into great detail and therefore are rather long, so I’d rather not clutter up this page with them. However, even though they are long, this plugin is not hard to install and use. The instructions just are long as they describe how you can cutomize everything.

If you enjoy this plugin, please consider sending a few bucks my way. I’ve spent a lotta time on this plugin and all donated money will be put towards paying off my college loans and such. 🙂

    Well, first make sure you don’t have any really long URLs or anything in the descriptions that are forcing the text to not line wrap. IF you do, use this plugin’s options page to edit the descriptions that get displayed.

    After that, you can use CSS to control the overall width of the table. The table has the CSS id “pluginstable”, so something like this will probably work:

    #pluginstable { width: 800px; }

    Yeah, as I suspected, you have a long string that isn’t wrapping and it’s forcing the width of your table to be quite large. You need to edit the displayed description for “Landing sites” and remove this bit:

    or at least turn it into a hyperlink. It’s forcing that column to be really wide.

  14. I’m glad you wrote this plugin as it’s quite nice, but I’m wondering if you’re going to update it for WordPress 2.1. The use of $title* variables leads me to believe it isn’t currently compatible with WP 2.1.

  15. hi there,

    you say it is not compatile with wp 2.1 but it works with wpmu which is based on wp2.1….
    another thing is, can I somehow modify your plugin to just list all available plugins? I need to show a list of all available plugins, rather than those I use.

    All I know is that a PHP error comes up in WP 2.1 and it didn’t previously. I haven’t had a chance to look into the exact problem due to other projects and the holidays.

    And I doubt all of the changes to the SVN have been ported to MU. It’s probably a bit behind the main core.

    Use get_plugins(). It returns an array of all plugins in the plugins directory. You may need to require/include in wp-admin/admin-functions.php.
