#58529 closed feature request (duplicate)

Make / plugin API for closed plugins that are no longer available

when we visit for instance

It will tell you this "This plugin has been closed and is no longer available for download."

However ..
visiting the API ->

"Plugin not found."

Why not
1) at least show a message here that is the same as on the plugin website ?
-> Task for Make
2) also show this in WP->tools and/or WP->plugins and/or WP->dashboard
-> Task for Core (plugins/API).

Because .. right now , if you have such a plugin installed, and you do not visit the page for that plugin. You have *no* knowledge of this data/info at all.

Hello and thanks for the ticket.

This is already discussed in #30465.
As this cannot be fixed on Core side (changes on .org APIs belong to .org, not Core), I'd recommend opening a ticket on Meta Trac:

  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

Since there is now a WP Meta trac ticket and this is essentially a duplicate of #30465... and to keep the discussion in one place, let's close this one and let's keep it in that ticket. :)
