WP Dev Dashboard

Description

Like this plugin? Please consider leaving a 5-star review.

Some of WP Dev Dashboard’s features are being ported over to the v3 WordPress plugin directory!

WP Dev Dashboard takes improves upon the default plugin/theme interfaces for authors, and allows you to easily:

  1. View and respond to all of your unresolved plugin & theme support requests.
  2. View useful statistics for all of your plugins & themes.

The default wordpress.org plugin/theme author dashboards can be difficult to parse, particularly if you have authored numerous plugins and/or themes that generate a large number of support requests. This plugin allows you to easily view and respond to your unresolved plugin and theme support requests in a simple, easy-to-use interface. Additionally, you can view all of your plugin/theme statistics (version, WP compatibility, downloads, ratings, etc) in a sortable table that makes side-by-side comparison a cinch.

Features

  • Displays plugin and theme support requests in sortable, collapsible metaboxes for ease of use.
  • Displays all plugins and themes in a sortable, easy-to-parse table.
  • Select which plugins and themes to show by username and/or slug.
  • Choose whether to show all support tickets, or just unresolved ones.
  • Implements caching to reduce load time for plugin and theme support ticket information.
  • Includes cache-busting “refresh” option to force refresh plugin and theme support ticket data.

Coming soon. . .

WP Dev Dashboard is intended to be the go-to resource for WordPress plugin and theme authors looking for a better management experience. The below list includes additional features for future development, features that are intended to make WordPress developers’ lives as easy as possible. If you have an idea for a feature you’d like to see, please submit it via the support forum.

  • Import unresolved Github issues as well as standard wordpress.org forum tickets.

  5. Order and collapse/expand your plugin and theme metaboxes as desired – their state will be saved.
  6. Resolve some support requests!

Reviews

Love this plugin!

Great plugin, hopefully something similar gets added in V3 of the repository this June. There are 3 things that would help to make it more useful:

– a cut off date for support threads, so that you could pull say just ones that are unresolved in the last week
– threads marked as “not a support question” not coming up in the unresolved list
– the ability to hide certain unresolved issues, so that ones you know you won’t answer stop appearing in the list

I imagine the last one would be more challenging.

Thanks again for a really useful dev plugin.

Almost perfect

This plugin is great I should really give it 5 stars but it takes up a top level menu items when is unnecessary and bad practice.
Otherwise completely brilliant

Worderful Idea

This is a kind of dashboard/service WordPress developers need, WordPress support forum + plugin repository sucks.

Is it going to evolve?
Which new features are you planning?

Anyway, 5 stars!
