Why you should clean up inactive WordPress Plugins


Just in case you didn’t know, Thesis (aff link), a premium WordPress theme, recently upgraded versions from 1.8 to 1.8.2.

After the upgrade, I logged back in to the WordPress Dashboard and could not find the Thesis Dashboard Menu. So I went to Thesis support section to see what to do. The answer was to deactivate some plugins.

I try to declutter my blog often, but since this current challenge was ‘cramping my style’, it seemed like I also had to declutter my plugins.

The first thing I did was go to my inactive plugins and ‘reviewed” each one to see if I needed it or not. If I didn’t it was deleted.

After that,  the Thesis Dashboard was back.

If you are not sure, just deactivate for a while and return in a month or so and finally make a decision.
