    Hello,

    I'm new to wordpress and I'm my own admin.

    Following quesitions seems to be not urgent or not solved.

    If I search or browse for a plugin some informations are missing. It's not possible to filter (or order by) for informations:

    .
    1. There is no information if the plugin makes changes to the database.
    There is no information if the deinstallation is without any lags.

    I would prefer differentiated informations for:
    - admins (installation/deinstallation)
    - decision maker for the aim of the blog

    .
    2. You can see the actual number of version. I think there should be a mix of:
    - amount and frequency of updates,
    - amount of votes which are the basic of the rating
    - date of last update,
    - version number

    I think it's not helpfull to download a plugin with a rating of 5 stars by 3 people if there is a plugin with the same function with 3 or 4 stars by 200 people.

    2b. perhaps it's possible to higher the amount of ratings if the voting could be done from the local dashboard.
    (next to: activate/deactivate/deinstallation)

    .
    3. there is'nt any category for any plugin to filter for. Some plugins do the same job but got diffrent names or catchwords. Catchwords in english and after translation from any other native speech are diffrent.

    Thanks for reading
    Wolfgang

    Are you looking for a plugin for any specific function or are you just noting down your views on plugins?

    intentionally I wanted to make a proposal to improve the software. I'm not shure if this is the right place to do this. Perhaps the link
    http://wordpress.org/extend/ideas/
    is more suitable for my intention.

    I'm not shure what you mean with: "just noting down your views on plugins" but if I search a specific function then I have a few words in my native language. The spectrum of translations of these few words will expand the possible list of "search-words".

    I think this will divert from the intention to find a good plugin.

    Please specifiy what you mean with "any specific function". Even if I browse for a new idea to develop my blog with this problem will appear.

    I agree. I am thinking of posting a few of my plugins in the repository but its seems like such a mess I'm not sure it will do any good.
