Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Related to #11050 but instead of the search results, on the regular plugins.php screen. Add "Info" link to left of Activate/Deactivate action links, which brings in the tabbed info from the repo. If not from the repo, link does not appear.

Change History (6)

Wont getting the info from Repo mean loading info of ver2.0 even if the user has ver1.0 installed?
Wont loading the same from the readme file on the plugin folder be better?

Yes, it would. Personally i'm leaning towards a "Tough luck, upgrade" point of view on that one..

That is the other option, and is much simpler as well, If the file exists, we use it, if not, we dont show the link.

That would however require we bundle a Markdown parser with WordPress. Something we've not done since.. 1.x
