Description

The link to the Plugin URI seems to have disappeared from plugin pages on the WordPress Plugin Directory. The donations link still appears (when present).

Be nice to get it back.

There was a long discussion about this when the link first dissapeared. Can't seem to find any of it atm.

Seems a bit inconsistent that it has been removed from plugin pages, but not from theme pages.

This was removed intentionally. Plugin authors have the ability to extensively define the content of their plugin pages, including links and everything else. That "Plugin URI" field was intended more as a unique identifier, not as something that will be linked to.
