[resolved] make visible disappears (5 posts)

    Hi Ron and thank you for an excellent plugin,

    Is there something I am missing though or just a bug?
    When I have a plugin NOT network activated the "Make visible/invisible" link shows up fine. Still, it completely disappears when a plugin gets Globally activated. is this supposed to work this way? Because one has to FIRST make a plugin visible and THEN globally activate it. Furthermore, once a plugin is globally activated there is NO WAY to make it visible or invisible if one happens to change one's mind. It would have to be deactivated first and then go through the whole process again. And five days later who would ever remember which ones of the globally activated plugins are visible or not? Hmmmm...
    And a bonus thought on the designing side. It is almost impossible (for my weary eyes at least) to tell apart visible from invisible plugins. Could the "Make invisible" link be bold or red or underlined red or having a little eye on top or whatever or..., just to make it stand out?

    Thank you in advance

    Yes, it's designed to work that way. The make visible/invisible applies to regular site admins. It has no effect on Super Admins. If you visit the site admin plugins screen as a non super admin the only plugins that will be listed are the ones you have made visible from your super admin account.

    Network activated plugins do not appear in the site admin plugins screen in WP 3.1. Those are only visible in the Network Admin plugin screen.

    Thank you Ron for the quick reply.
    Ok. I understand the logic behind it. I will test it more till I get the feel of it.
    Still, I stand strong on the idea on having "Make invisible" stand out.
    I think it would be nicer and easier for me to see.
    Could you please tell me what I would need to change/add as to customize it for myself?
    Thanx again.

    Action links like that one appeared in the admin area circa 2.7/2.8. I don't think I've ever seen one highlighted. So, the only tip I have is use CSS to adjust that particular link. If you search the forum a bit, you should find a few threads on adding CSS to the admin area.
