I was under the impression that the WordPress Toolkit Plugin was an optional plugin install and you could enable during feature showcase process. After the update however all my servers had the WordPress Toolkit Plugin enabled by default.

I had to manually remove via - rpm -e wp-toolkit-cpanel

Is this plugin mandatory now?

I assume as this will be a paid product in the future (or part of it is now already) similarly to ImmunifyAV it will be installed automatically on the new servers from now on.

After some more reading. WordPress Toolkit Lite is free/cutdown version which is automatically enabled within cPanel when you upgrade to version 92. WordPress Toolkit Deluxe is a paid upgrade.

This probably means WordPress Toolkit Lite will continuously send nag emails, popups, whatever it takes to get the clients attention and coerce the server owner into into paying for WordPress Toolkit Deluxe.

that's what I believe as well.

The current plan is that this will replace the existing Wordpress Manager, but it doesn't get installed by default. Is it possible that you clicked the "yes" button on the new Feature Manager pop up when you logged into WHM after the update to version 92? That would enable this on the system, and I've attached an image of that Feature Showcase below.

Popups inside the cPanel pages? That's not really our style :D

No, the feature pop up window was show (even though you say pop ups are not your style) with the feature spotlight and new features, but without the recommended feature. I should have taken a screen capture.

Thanks

Hey there, @Paul Shultz

So I have much more news on the Wordpress Toolkit system than I did earlier in the month :D

Wordpress Toolkit will be automatically installed on servers that have the older Wordpress Manager already installed. This happens as part of the update to cPanel version 92. If you'd like to prevent WPT from being installed at all, the best way currently is to add the RPM to the exclude line in /etc/yum.conf, so the package can not even be downloaded to your system.

I'm still not sure what you mean with regards to the popup or notification that you're seeing, but if you are able to get a screenshot I'd be happy to look at that for you.
