#27303 new enhancement

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

Reported by: Fredelig Owned by:
Milestone: Awaiting Review Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.8.1
Component: Plugins Keywords: has-patch
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. :)

This seems logical. Always wondered why we didn't also do this for the comments pending approval bubble.

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.
