Standardize Report Tabs

  1. waddie

    Counterize II displays its statistics on a tab off the Dashboard. Dschini Bot Checker displays its statistics on a tab off Manage. Bad Behaviour displays its statistics on its options page. And so on.

    It would be neat if plug-in authors were encouraged to keep all this stuff in the same place - a top-level Report tab with separate tabs for each plug-in below it, for example - even if that encouragement just took the form of a style-guide or similar.

    yeah, some guidelines would be useful (enforced by vox populi through bug reports :D)

    Since this idea was submitted, WordPress has undergone atleast 2 major UI overhauls for the back-end. All menus are now on the left hand side. However, the problem you mentioned with plugin settings pages being spread throughout the menu system instead of in one top level menu item still exists.

    However, there is a means to fix this issue already where plugin authors can add a settings link that is visible on the plugin management page. Getting plugin authors to do that is an entirely different issue.

    So on the one hand, this idea is implemented but on the other, it's not being used by plugin authors.
