Manually checking the WordPress Plugins that are installed:
Whenever a new WordPress site is released one of the main thing of concern is the plugins that are being used for the particular WordPress site. One of the most tiresome and time consuming way to check the WordPress Plugin that is been installed is by checking it manually. It involves checking one site after the other in order to find the traces of the particular plugin that is being installed. This was not at all a good idea to keep a check on all the plugins.
Great tool to find the Plugins installed:
There was a great tool that was being developed by the Earth People where one can check any site for the WordPress Plugins. Earlier the tool was developed for them which was only for the internal use but now anyone can use this Plugin. This tool is WordPress Plugin Checker to keep the track of the plugins that are installed.
Limitations of WordPress Plugin Checker:
Such a great tool that will help you to detect the WordPress Plugins that are being installed in your site but the one thing that will pull you back from installing this plugin is one of its limitations.
