Description

Finding context-relevant support can be challenging for new users and many of them are not aware of the fact that each plugin has its own support forum.

One simple way to bridge this gap could be to include a "Support" link underneath the plugin description. This link would take to that plugin's forum.

Hello @mrfoxtalbot and welcome to WordPress Core Trac,

I personally support this proposal. Will put together a patch asap.

Why stop at plugins? I'd also add it for themes.

Thank you @audrasjb!

It did not occur to me but I agree with you, @NekoJonez. We should do this for themes too.

  • Summary changed from Add individual "Support" links to the plugin list page to Add individual "Support" links to the plugin list page / theme page

If I'm not mistaken, there are easy links to the support forums in the help tabs on the right top of the admin panel... So, plugin and themes are those who are lacking it.

Some plugins already have support links in the action links under the name or in the meta row under the description. Using an array key might help authors remove (or edit) the Core link.
