Relocate and define best practice for plugin notifications

  1. techpadllc

    Plugin developers do have valid reasons to touch their users with notifications. But recently I feel a lot of notifications are at the point of being too much to straight up obnoxious. I can't possibly reassure a developer enough times that they're doing a good job or turn down enough specials for pro versions after declining several times.

    The request is to limit notifications in a way where critical notification would pop open either in a slide in bar or as they are now (though I feel that isn't user friendly as you can log in and if you have enough plugins would have to scroll past them all to get to what you're doing) Then promotional or requests for feedback would be visible at our discretion. I feel that every developer is taking advantage of that space and its becoming unreasonable.

    I'd also like WordPress to manage these notifications in a better manner. If I dismiss or decline something often it will show back up regardless. If I'm a manager of a site I should also be able to dismiss notifications for all users so they are not annoyed by promotions or requests if I don't want them to be.

    If I've purchased or used a plugin, there are plenty of other avenues for developers to contact me then spamming my admin dashboard.

    I dont think this is possible. U cant tell if the notification is an error / critical or if it is just advertisement.
    If the plugin throws too many notifications, uninstall it an tell the vendor.
