Description

Why don't we have share buttons in Plugins Directory, e.g. https://wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack/
It seems natural.

Hi @web2033, welcome to Meta Trac!

Good question, why do you think we should have them?

@obenland more convenient and quick way to bring information to our auditory about interesting plugins, I think

Replying to web2033:

@obenland more convenient and quick way to bring information to our auditory about interesting plugins, I think

It's hard to argue with the convenience factor, but I doubt sharing a plugin in social circles is a common enough occurrence or copying the URL too big of a burden for them to be added.

@obenland so why then we have share btns let's say on wordpcamptv?)

Because sharing a video to social media is a lot more common. Sharing a plugin, not so much.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Right, I don't think it's something we should continue to pursue at this time.
