#28803 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Audit screen options for new plugin "cards"

After #28785 checking the "Version" option inside Screen Options does not toggle anything on the new Plugin Cards, whereas toggling "Rating" and "Description" does.

Maybe a couple of extra toggles could also be added? Toggling the Rating seems somewhat useless at the moment as you do not lose any vertical space due to the other content inside the footer. Maybe being able to toggle the entire footer would make more sense?

My patch on #28673 removes the unused "Version" and adds an "Extra Details" toggle which hides the plugin card footers.

I've attached a patch which removes the "Version" Screen Option as it doesn't do anything and adds another called "Extra Details" which toggles the footer of the plugin card (see the above screenshot as reference what it looks like with "Extra Details" disabled).

I'd suggest removing the screen options for plugin-install entirely. Since this display is more visual than what we had previously, and displays the same information in a more condensed form, I don't see much benefit to hiding the different options regardless of use-case. As it is, toggling description or ration doesn't save any notable vertical space.

Agree, I see no reason for there to be options here.
