Flag user-modified Plugins

    My blog currently uses almost 20 plugins. For the most part I just tweak the CSS. However sometimes I modify the supplied php code to add/change some functionality. The risk here is that when the next upgrade comes along and I click the "upgrade automatically" function on my Manage Plugins page, I run the risk of overwriting my changes.

    What would be great would be the ability to flag a plugin (on the Manage Plugins page) when you modify the base code.

    Then when you click the "upgrade automatically" later on down the track (and you've forgotten that you modified it) it could warn you that you've flagged this as user-modified plugin so you can go upgrade however you want and maintain your changes (out of scope for this request).

    I agree! - I also have up to 20-ish plugins, and have to tweak the code to get them all to work. would be a good way to remember, rather than use my current spreadsheet method

    I think the number of people who a) edit their plugins and b) have enough plugins that they can't remember which ones they've edited is probably a fairly small percentage. This sounds cool, but is plugin territory.
