Install WordPress Plugins from the Frontend

If you are a programmer or an entrepreneur who wants to create an app where you can install WordPress plugins from the frontend of a website, this tutorial is for you.

As a programmer, you will have the opportunity to earn good money in a very short time, since you will not have to program the code necessary to install WP plugins from the frontend. On the other hand, as an entrepreneur full of projects in mind, you won’t have to learn how to program or hire a programmer who will charge you a good amount of money and ask you for a considerable time to give you the site.

We want to show you how to create a frontend page to install WP plugins with a single click and a few minutes to configure the quick settings of this new page. For this, we’ll use the WP Frontend Admin plugin, which allows you to view and display any wp-admin page on the frontend.

Contrary to other methods that may include coding something, the only thing you need to do in order to be able to install or manage your plugins on the frontend is to click on View on the frontend. With just this click, the plugin will load the Add New page on the frontend.

3- Configure and publish the page

Something really great about WP Forntend Admin is that you can easily hide any elements you consider unnecessary from your new frontend page. That way your users will have a great, simplified experience. Just click on Hide element and then click on the element you want to hide.

You may want to hide these elements:

  • Add Plugins
  • Screen Options
  • Help
  • Etc.

After hiding all the elements you want and selecting the page’s title, URL slug, template and menu, just click on Save to publish the page. It’s that simple!

4- Open the new page

Finally, you can check that the new page has been correctly created. Your users can install plugins from the frontend. They just need to login.

After they log in, your users will be able to install plugins right from the frontend.

Done!

As you can see, it’s really simple to install plugins form the frontend with the WP Frontend Admin plugin. You just need one click and some minutes to configure the page.

important questions

1- Can I use other plugins to create web apps?

Yes. You can display any admin page on the frontend, and it works with all WordPress plugins.

2- Is the plugin compatible with page builders?

Yes. You can use it with other page builders such as Elementor, Visual Composer, Gutenberg, Divi, Beaver Builder, WP Page Builder, Page Builder by SiteOrigin, Oxygen, Live Composer, Brizy, and many others to create great sites.

3- What if I cannot see this page on the frontend after login?

If you can not view the page after log in, you need to use one of these roles:

  • administrator
  • author

In case you don’t want to assign one of these roles, you can create a new user role with the User Role Editor plugin. This new user role needs the activate_plugins capability.

4- How many elements can I hide?

You can hide all elements you want. It all depends on what you need.

Just be careful not to hide elements you might need in the future.

5- What if I want to revert the elements I’ve hidden?

You can revert that. Just click on Revert below the Hide element button.
