#17406 closed enhancement (fixed)

Include link to view plugin details on 'Updates' page

Description

When there are updates available, I check out the 'Updates' page to see what's new. Before installing updated plugins I almost always check their changelog to see what impact it may have, however it's not possible to do this on the Updates page! Users have to go to the Plugins page, and scroll down the list (or click Update Available), and then they can click on the 'View version X.x details' for each available plugin update.

To facilitate this process it would make a lot of sense to also include the 'View version X.x details' link (see below) next to each available plugin update on the 'Updates' page. It's fairly trivial really (maybe in 3.2? ;), and would make Admins' lives easier.

It'd be much appreciated. Thanks.

Easy patch to make. Just added the link and the relevant thickbox and thickbox resizing code.

Cheers Otto. Was going to try making a patch tonight, but it would've taken me longer as I've never tried making a patch for WP before.

Come on guys, can't we get this into 3.2? It's such a trivial change that has no impact on functionality/compatibility.

Come on guys, can't we get this into 3.2?

Unfortunately not, The time for getting new enhancements into 3.2 has long passed.

I've been using Otto's patch and it's great. Any chance of getting this reviewed into a milestone?

  • Keywords 3.4-early added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

The patch still applies and works fine.

This looks like a nice enhancement, but looking at 3.3 project schedule, we're
already in non-leads feature freeze.

Marking as 3.4-early, unless someone from the core team wants to include it in 3.3.

Closed #18597 as a duplicate.

Glad to see someone else found it. In case anyone else wasn't convinced, here's a screencast illustrating our point: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRcS06HtcTs

comment:9 SergeyBiryukov3 years ago

  • Keywords 3.4-early removed
  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 3.3

Feature freeze has been put off for another week. This could be a nice addition to 3.3, since core changelogs are also in the scope.
