how do i disable certain plugins for catagory page.

for example www.example.com/catagory
here it wil list all items posted

extended example www.example.com/catagory/bikes here it will show all post of bikes

so i want to remove all wordpress plugins for www.example.com/catagory
because its making alot of database request to unwanted pluigns that is not even required for this page.

another example what i mean is when we have 10 plugins installed we may use them plugins for certain page , contact form7 etc but i seen contact form7 plugins,files load in other pages when its not even needed there , so i used ( plugin optimizer ) which did a good job turning off unwanted plugins for certain pages , how ever am unable to do this task for catagory any suggestions ?

  • That's depending on the plugin functions. Say for example social sharing buttons will work on all the pages. If a plugin runs by a short code it will run on the specific page only.

There is no general way to do that. If you need different sections of your site to use different plugins then you should consider using wordpress in a network/multisite configuration with every section as a subsite and have different plugins working on each subsite. This of course might create its own set of (different) problems.
