Plugin Ideas Repository

  1. Jick


    I've noticed a lot that many ideas submitted here are plugin material. It's been stated many many times that this area of the site is strictly for ideas for WordPress core.

    So, why not have another area dedicated to ideas for plugins? Many people out there have ideas for plugins but simply don't have the expertise to code them. Then there are developers (like me) who have trouble coming up with ideas for plugins to create. We should get those two categories of people into one location. It seems so obvious!

    Not only that but it will also be a better place to direct people when they mistakenly submit ideas that are better for plugins in this area. Rather than just say "Sorry, this place is for core ideas only" or something not too entirely useful like that.

    The infrastructure is already here. I imagine it would be very similar to this area. Basically a carbon-copy with a different name.

    Sure, you can submit ideas to the forum or similar places but posts there can quickly be drowned out. I think a setup like this Ideas area is a better idea.

    That's just my idea...

    This whole 'ideas' forum is really just a pile of junk on your desk. You know there's probably some useful stuff in there, you just never bother to actually go through it.

    I agree with you 100%, we should have a separate plugin suggestion area, since barely anything makes it into the core anyway. WP.org is in need of restructuring in many ways (old plugins need to be deleted, feedback needs to be easier), unfortunately the main devs never seem to do anything about it.

    @videoguy916: Maybe I should put you in touch with the many people who complain about how many features keep getting added with each new version!

    This is not a core suggestion
