Plugin Compatibility page for WordPress 2.9
|Reported by:||sirzooro||Owned by:||ryan|
In the past we had special codex page, where everyone could find plugins compatible with given WP version (e.g. with WP 2.8. Starting from WP 2.9 we have new feature - Compatibility widget in plugin repository, and similar feature in plugin installer. I also found that codex page dedicated for plugins compatible with WP 2.9 was removed (link).
In general this change is good. Unfortunately it creates also a gap - now users do not have a list of plugins which are compatible with WP 2.9. I got some traffic from such 2.8 page, so I think users uses it as an alternative for plugin search - just to find plugins with interesting names, which may be useful for them. Plugin search does not allow for this - you have to know some keywords first. Additionally, plugin search does not allow to search for plugins compatible with 2.9 only - with few plugins added to repository every day, users ends with long list of plugins to check.
Therefore I suggest to create such plugin list page in codex for 2.9 too. We can also think of adding filtering to plugin search, in order to search for plugins compatible for given version only.
