Disable WordPress plugin per request

Is it possible to get Wordpress to disable a plugin for a single page visit using URL args? For e.g. example.com/?disable_plugin=akismet/akismet.php So far I've tried the following: deactivate_plugins( $disable_pluggins_arr, true, // silent mode (no deactivation hooks fired) false // network wide ); This works hover it's also disabled globally. Same goes for using options_active_plugins hook add_filter( 'option_active_plugins', function( $plugins ){ $plugins = array_diff( $plugins, $disable_pluggins_arr ); return $plugins; }); It disables the plugins but it's stored in the database and visiting any other page will not have them active. How can I temporarily bypass a plugin from loading when using ?disable_plugin=akismet/akismet.php for that request;
Yes it's possible but the corresponding code cannot be written in the functions.php or in an ordinary plugin. You MUST create your own mu-plugin for this. Read more about Must-Use-Plugins here. Your filter hook is ok but you need to define where to fire and where not to fire. Also the wp-admin path should be excluded (the backend). So create a new subfolder mu-plugins under wp-content. Next, take the snippet below and create a file with it (e.g. bypass-plugins.php). Copy the file to /wp-content/mu-plugins/. Finally, adjust the variables $bypass_path and $bypass_plugins to your needs. <?php /** * Plugin Name: Bypass Plugins * Description: Bypass WordPress plugins on a specific page. * Version: 1.0.0 */ # no direct access if ( ! defined( 'ABSPATH' ) ) { header( 'HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden' ); exit; } # the bypass path $bypass_path = '/some-path/'; # plugins to be bypassed $bypass_plugins = [ 'akismet/akismet.php', 'hello.php' ]; # get url path from request $url_path = parse_url( $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'], PHP_URL_PATH ); # check if in the backend $is_backend = strpos( $url_path, '/wp-admin/' ); # check for bypass path $is_bypass_path = strpos( $url_path, $bypass_path ); # not in the backend but bypass path detected - do the magic if ( $is_backend === false && $is_bypass_path !== false ) { /* To make things work we need the option_{$option} hook and use it on a filter. * https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/hooks/option_option/ * * The 'option_active_plugins' filter hook returns an array of active plugins. * With the help of PHP array_diff we remove the plugins to be bypassed from * the array of active plugins and return it. */ add_filter( 'option_active_plugins', function ( $plugins ) use ( $bypass_plugins ) { return array_diff( $plugins, $bypass_plugins ); } ); }
