#27303 new enhancement

Make the "Plugins bubble-link" only show plugins that have an update available

Focuses: administration Cc:


If I click on "Plugins", I get the full list of plugins. (plugins.php)
If I click on the bubble, I get the plugins with an update available. (plugins.php?plugin_status=upgrade)

It's a very small enhancement, but it will save me a click every time I go to update my plugins. :)

Hi Fredelig, welcome to Trac :-)

This seems logical to me. I've always wondered why we didn't also do this for the comments pending approval bubble -- seems like it would save a step.

It's too late for something like this in the 3.9 cycle, but it would be interesting to discuss for a future version.

This would make a great enhancement

Still needs a patch to move forward.

I'd also like to see accessibility arguments for or against this proposed change. @afercia: What do you think?

This would be a nice opportunity to improve accessibility here since currently the menu item + bubble gets read out by screen readers as:

"Plugins two"

Can be improved in different ways, for example using an aria-label attribute on the new link we could provide a longer, descriptive, text. As long as the focus style (for keyboard navigation) on the bubble will be clear and won't rely on color alone, I don't see any problem in adding a new link.
For consistency, should be done for the Comments pending count too.
