Admin Plugin Page - Arrange Into Categories...

  1. D4nnii


    I have alot of plugins like the next person. I have searched for plugins to arrange the Admin Plugin Page but none seem to cut it.

    Theres a plugin page "prettifier" which I am using at present: http://planetozh.com/blog/my-projects/wordpress-better-plugin-page

    The idea is to extend ALOT on the Ohz Better Plugin Page by organizing the plugins by Category (only on the plugin page) that are defined by the user.

    Ways To Organize:
    acordian effect of each category that drops down to show the collection of plugin the user defined for that category.

    Tabs at the top of the plugin page, by the user defined name for that plugin category. when tab clicked a page will show all plugins the user had defined for that category.

    As I said this will EXPAND on the Ohz plugin so it will need all the functions such as: Activate, Deactivate, Edit Plugin Link, Auto Upgrade Plugin - tells you when it needs upgrading BUT when you upgrade it does it from the page/tab that you are on.

    Then the other options that Ohz uses is Show all active/deactive,etc...

    I hope someone likes my idea, if I had the time an knowledge to make this pluin I would. Maybe one day i'll start making my own!

    Thanks for taking your time to read my idea.

    I love this idea!

    Though, I would propose a set of "stock" categories for plugins, such as:

    - Admin Interface (admin themes, menus, etc.)
    - Admin Tools (SPAM, OpenID, FeedBurner, etc.)
    - Blog Template (comment/post formatting, etc.)
    - Post/Content Enhancement (socialization, related posts, etc.)
    - Etc.

    If these Plugin Categories could be incorporated into the plugin template, they could be used to sort/filter on the Admin Plugin interface, and could also be exposed as search/filter criteria in the wp.com/extend plugin directory.

    Having this sort of filter capability in the Admin UI would facilitate blog administration. If I wanted to do general back-end maintenance, I could filter out all of the front-end plugins (blog template, post content, etc. type plugins). Alternately, if I wanted to work on my front-end design, I could filter out all of the back-end related plugins.

    With the upcoming Active/Recent/Inactive plugin groupings in the upcoming 2.6 release, plugin category filter/sorting/grouping would be a powerful admin combination!
