Bloated and useless plug-ins.

  • I spend hours, trying to find KISS-Keep it Simple stupid plug-ins, for us guys and gals not up with the technical aspects of plug-ins. You guys need to go through the Plug-ins and delete the bloated and useless plug-ins, half of which we can’t get to work. How about putting a limit on updates, as in if it is not updated at least every 60 days, it gets pulled from the Plug-in list. 300 days, 465 days, etc, between updates is ridiculous.

    I am totally disgusted with spending hours upon hours, trying to get certain plug-ins to work.

    How about this…Instead of headings like Popular, Recent etc, how about one that says SIMPLE TO USE!!

    A frustrated user.

    Nope.

    There is a limit of a year, where if it’s not updated it gets dropped from the search. Not every plugin NEEDS to be updated every 60 days. Heck, most work find out of the box.

    If there are broken plugins, mark it on that page as broken.

    That’s funny because some that I looked at, haven’t been updated in over a year, and they are still listed. Where do you mark a plugin as broken?

    Not, dropped from being listed.

    A lot of the older plugins still work just fine. You can mark a plugin as not working from the right hand side of the plugin page. Near where you rate it.
