#8582 closed enhancement (fixed)

Show more Popular, Newest and Recently Added plugins in the plugin installer

Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: minor Version: 2.7
Component: Site Keywords: plugin, installer

now that we have an amazing plugin installer, many people are going to use it. however only showing the top 6 of the featured, popular, newest and recently updated plugins seems like an odd restriction.

A simple fix would to show the top 15 at least, or 24 would be better.

the problem seems to be with the wordpress plugin API on It seems to be limiting the requests to 6 on it's end.

  • Component changed from Plugins to
  • Owner set to matt

Indeed it'd be good if the bbPress Views on .org were updated to show 24 plugins for the API, But as it is, there are only a tiny handful of "Featured" plugins on .org anyway :)

  • Summary changed from Show more Featured, Popular and Newest plugins in the plugin installer to Show more Popular, Newest and Recently Added plugins in the plugin installer

it is fine that featured only has a few, as this is the same as what is on .org, but the popular, featured, etc. all show many more on so they could also inside wp 2.7

I'm working on this now. If all goes well, the number of results will go up, and the search results will drastically improve.
