Help! I've broken my board! 
Hopefully you'll never have the misfortune to break your board with a plugin containing an error, but if you do you could potentially find yourself unable to log into correct the problem because your plugin has broken the login system.

Thankfully, help is at hand. There is a global, code-level switch you can use to totally disable the plugin/hook system so that any plugins (including broken ones) do not run.

To disable the plugin/hook system completely without accessing the Admin CP options, you need to edit includes/config.php and add the following code:
define('DISABLE_HOOKS'true); 
With this code in config.php, no plugins will run at all.

To re-enable the plugin system, remove the code again from config.php.
