Adds version compatibility info to the plugins page to inform the admin at a glance if a plugin is compatible with the current WP version.
This is a very useful plugin.
Obviously plugin developers don't all update their plugins instantaneously for each WordPress release and some plugins don't even require updating all that often, so "Better Plugin Compatibility Control" is limited in what it can tell you. The value of it is that it makes it easy to see which plugins are severely out of date, so you can do some research and see if you should be dumping them.
Have consistently been able use use for 2 years to present without encountering functional or security issue.
I was also able to extend it finding it robust to add to; having a resilient base code from which to add on was "poetry in motion".
My extended version added to the base code has been running without issue for 6+ months. ready to share it.
Extended version add's under the "Deactivate | Edit | 2.8–3.6" two lines
- Plugin Downloads= 13,828
Should the plugin have been removed by its author on wordpress.org, the download's will be substituted with a red warning "WARNING This plugin no longer exists on WordPress.org !" replacing the line with the # of downloads.
Community: Please do express interest if you would like Oliver to to consider reviewing and adding my completed tested code into Mr. Schloebe's base code.
With interest I and Mr. Schloebe can gauge the value of such an effort.
This plugin is a great idea, in theory. However, it working correctly depends explicitly on all the other plugin developers, updating the compatibility version information in their plugin text file (which they rarely do).
