How to Temporarily Disable a Plugin

If you suspect a plugin is causing issues for your Craft project, you can temporarily disable it from the control panel.

First, make sure you’re logged in with an admin account, and then head over to SettingsPlugins.

The “Plugins” link within Craft’s Settings page

If you can’t see a Settings link in your control panel nav, and you’re sure that you’re logged in as an admin, it may be because you have turned off allowAdminChanges for that environment.

Then find the plugin you wish to disable, click on its action menu, and select Disable.

Alternatively, you can edit config/general.php to provide one or more plugin handles for the disabledPlugins setting.
