Description from store The WP Hive Chrome Extension is another revolutionary step for WordPress users, right from Chrome itself. Have you ever wondered how much impact a plugin has on your WordPress website? WP Hive’s Plugin testing tool automatically tests a plugin and gives you better insights. Easily discover new plugins or the popular ones with relevant filters. Even compare plugins like you do for phones. Get useful metrics such as impact on memory usage & pagespeed, PHP errors, warning or notices, Javascript issues, PHP 7.4 compatibility, latest WordPress 5.5 version compatibility, database footprint, activation error, resource errors - right from your WordPress.org page. WP Hive automatically tests all WordPress plugins to get useful metrics and shows them inside the WordPress.org plugin pages. You can also compare a plugin with another plugin from WP Hive and get a detailed insight of the plugin. The extension also offers an option to redirect to WP Hive plugin page for a particular plugin. Sure, WordPress repository is great, but WP Hive makes it even better with better insights & adding more value to users. The privacy policy can be found here: wphive.com/privacy-policy/

  • (2023-06-27) Konstantinos Sakkas: Very nice plugin, and useful too. I reckon it needs a maintainer's attention though, since the latest PHP version it checks compatibility of is for 7.4.8, which as of this date (27/06/2023) is EOL, and not supported anymore. Perhaps it would be more useful to check for compatibility with more recent versions of PHP's , if not 8.2.
  • (2022-09-21) King World: Very Poor. rubbish. They must tell how to use it. Nothing about very important plugins like bitwarden etc. No result found for most commonly used plugins. Very disappointing extension.
  • (2022-07-21) Shah Jamil Bhuiyan: Really love this extension. Helped me find useful data and made easier to choose the right WordPress plugin.
  • (2022-07-21) Rabbir Shad: Because of this extension, I don't need to search in the web for more information on WordPress.org plugins.
  • (2022-07-05) Enamul Reza: A very good tool to find WordPress plugin infos, and more.
  • (2022-06-22) Adrita Chakraborty: This buddy assist me to choose a plugin without a dilemma. Love the people who are working behind WPHIVE.
  • (2022-03-09) Deanna: Does not work. Just says 'no plugins found.' Useless.
  • (2022-01-21) Heath Brown: Dear Dev, This plugin has so much potential and is just a few lines of code away from reaching it. Please don't look at my comments & ideas as being negative or hateful. I believe that I want this plugin to be the best it can be more than anyone! 😂 Pros: // -- Pro #1 // -- Importance: 10/10 // -- Detail: It analyzes and grades all of the plugins based on information it has. // -- My Notes: I'm a coder and a stats nerd, so I automatically love anything like this. // -- Pro #2 // -- Importance: 78/10 // -- Detail: There is a compare option to stack-up plugins against each other. // -- My Notes: Sometimes we don't know which plugin to pick. This could be the final judge in some cases. Cons: // -- Con #1 // -- Importance: 10/10!!! // -- Issue: It doesn't work from the WP Admin area! That's the only place that myself and most other users browse for plugins, because we can easily install from there in one click. So unfortunately, I had to uninstall it because I never used it. // -- Notes: Sadly, this was the dealbreaker. It should be an easy fix though. You already have the code. You would just have to apply it from the Admin area. Let me know if there are plans to do this so I can keep up with your plugin as this makes a huge difference in how I view your plugin. // -- Con #2 // -- Importance: 7/10 // -- Issue: No option to redirect ALL pages ti WP Hive. // -- My Notes: Again, it should be easy to put this together since you have already coded the auto-redirect to user-specified plugins. You just need a chockbox for the option to be enabled\disabled. If enabled, redirect all plugins to WP Hive. Maybe even ad one non-intrustive advertisement to monetize from all the new page views. // -- Con #3 // -- Importance: 7/10 // -- Issue: No Firefox edition // -- My Notes: About 1/3 of my blogs are managed on Firefox for many reasons, and there is no Firefox version of the plugin available. It's pretty simple for a dev to port his Chrome plugin to Firefox. // -- Sites That Help: Firefox has their own site to test if your Chrome plugin will port over to Firefox with no adjustments required: https://dug.to/firefox-test ...if there is something blocking you from porting to irefox, then it will tell you exactly what it is and how to fix it. ...and once you confirm that your plugin is ready to be ported to Firefox, Mozilla has even provided simple guide to get it done: https://dug.to/chrome-to-firefox Please update me on these if you can. I'm very interested in this plugin's development going forward. Best of luck!
  • (2021-10-27) Heath “rolltidehero” B.: The only thing it is missing is the ability to work from the WordPress Admin site. I never visit WordPress.org. I just use Plugins > Add New Plugin in WordPress. Still an outstanding plugin. Wish I could give it 4.9 stars.
  • (2021-10-19) Md Tanvir Faisal: This extension makes it easier to decide when choosing the right WP plugin. It provides great insights into each plugin that helps anyone with a non-technical background understand the technical aspects. Kudos to the developers!

  • (2020-09-10) Oscar Fröberg: Just tested it with one plugin and that was enough to not warrant keeping it. It shows nothing but top scores for the WP File Manager plugin, which vulnerability issues recently plagued the WP community. Yes, maybe 6.9 is GREAT, but versions 6.0-6.8 had troubling security issues. If this is not reflected anywhere then it's really misleading.
