OneClick WordPress Plugin
The OneClick plugin makes it much easier to install other plugins or themes on WordPress. Basically it eliminates the need to update files through FTP. Instead you just need to select a .zip file and the plugin will install it for you.
This can be quite useful if you manage your blog from different computers. There is another plugin that does a similar job called PlugInstaller, but OneClick looks more user friendly, and it has some interesting upcoming features.

I think that you may find this program more trouble (long term) than it’s worth (assuming you are on a *nix host).
It’s important to understand that most web servers “run” as a different user-id than your ftp account. When you FTP a file (or files) to the server the files are “owned” by the user-id that you logged into FTP with. When you use a file upload (like this plugin) the files get owned by by the user that runs the web server. This is really not an issue until you go to delete a file uploaded this way. If the plugin allows you to delete files also it will be fine. Most likely you won’t be able to delete them with FTP or any web based file manager so you can never clear up unused plugins.
Good point Frank!
Thankfully the plugin does allow one to delete previously installed plugins or themes.
Personally I still use the FTP for my stuff, but I think the plugin can be handy for some people for some particular situations.
I find it useful for all those users of WP who doesn’t have FTP access or something like that.
thank you sooo much Daniel! I”m so glad you are in my reader! this is such a great pluggin. It really streamlines my process tremendously. all the best, Nia. ^!^
Cool Plugin Daniel. Really useful too. Thanks.
Unfortunately, the website for oneclick (http://anirudhsanjeev.org/projects/oneclick/) is not accessible/down at this point of time.
Hmm … a plugin installing plugin! How should I install it? 🙂
I will find this plugin quite useful as I frequently do WordPress admin from different computers.
Raj, maybe it was the DBT effect :).
Don’t forget that you can use web FTP service like http://www.net2ftp.com to upload compressed archives (of plugins or whatever) and have them decompressed on the server.
Going to try it now.
I sometimes need to do this so it may be worth having as a back up.
Surely you can change the permissions later anyway

Nice one-click plugin, but it seems that this comes built-in in WordPress 2.7 which is a dream and I love the Popular tags Plugin Directory too.
