#19513 closed enhancement (wontfix)

After Plugin Update Redirected to "Plugins All" instead of "Update Available"

I did try this scenario couples of times and this small bug persist:

  1. I go to Plugin > Update Available (10)
  1. I click "update automatically" on a compatible plugin that I want to update.
  1. I click "Return to Plugins page"
  1. I'm redirected to Plugins > All (20)
  1. I expect to be redirected back to Plugin > Update Available (9)

( This is my first bug report to WP core trac, I got advised after posting here )

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to enhancement

I think this is an enhancement request, not a bug. The expectation is that if someone wants to update multiple plugins, they should use the checkboxes to bulk update rather than going back and forth between screens. Once update is complete, we want them to have access to activate/deactivate/configure, so bumping back to the Update Available view doesn't make sense. That's why we put the bulk updater on that screen in the first place.

Closing as wontfix, because this would mean extra clicking/page loads for most users.

Yes, but what if someone wants to update only the plugins that are compatible to the current version of WP? They don't want to bulk update... they probably choose to read the changelog before updating every plugin.

That's what I do:
I read the plugin changelog. I make sure is compatible with the last version of WP. I look in the forum for what others are saying...
I make the plugin update.
I verify the front end to see if the plugin is working well...
If something goes wrong I go back to the last plugin update and investigate.
Else I click again the "Update Available" and go to the next plugin in the list :)

@nickshor: That's what "open link in new tab" is for. ;)

@scribu: Yes, I use the middle-click (scroll wheel) for that... is much faster :D
