Revamp Plugin Install page

One thing I love about WordPress 2.7+ is the "screen option" tab. I just visited the 2.9 "Add Plugin" (plugin-new.php) page and noticed the tag cloud for plugins. I think it would be good to have a "Screen option" tab and allow removal of this cloud.

  • Keywords 2nd-opinion added
  • Milestone changed from Unassigned to 2.9
  • Summary changed from remove of "tags" in Plugin Search to Revamp Plugin Install page

Hiding the tag cloud alone could be easily achieved through CSS.

I think a complete revamp of the plugin install page would be better:

  • fully widgetized
  • move the Recent Plugins and Popular plugins boxes from the dashboard to the plugin install page

  • Milestone 2.9 deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

We'll be looking at better UI one day, but I doubt it will be widgetized to allow screen options. It's something we can consider then. Closing this for now since it won't be getting traction any time soon.
