I have several plugins that I occasionally use for maintenance/import tasks etc. but I don't need them available in the plugins admin most of the time.
As my site has quite a large number of plugins, I was wondering if there is any advantage to moving them completely out of the 'wp-content/plugins' directory? I thought I might create a directory 'wp-content/plugins-disabled' and put them in there. Is it bad practice to create my own directories like this in 'wp-content'?
