Improvements to Plugin Installer modals
|Reported by:||paulwilde||Owned by:||helen|
I've made this ticket as broad as possible as it could serve as a main ticket for improvements discussed in #26952.
One idea that I've explored is having the main plugin banner integrated into the modal window.
Here's a run-down of each attachment:
plugin-header-image-none.png - This is how the modal would look if the plugin doesn't have a banner image. This is pretty much how the modal looks now should the changes as discussed in #26952 be made.
plugin-header-image-full.png - This is how the modal would look if the plugin supports a banner image. Incidentally the banner for Jetpack works rather nicely for this design, this wouldn't be the case for all banners. The close icon would change colour (light or dark) based on its background. There's popular solutions to achieve this such as BackgroundCheck.
plugin-header-image-alt-full.png - This is a version which has a more abstract background where the title and tab buttons would be hard to read. I've added a gradient behind the title/tab to make them more readable.
plugin-header-image-alt-reduced.png - The banner takes up a lot of space in relation to the actual content of the banner, so I have the idea that the banner height would reduce as you scroll through the contents of each tab. Google+ used to use this idea with their huge profile cover photos if you don't understand what I mean.
