Certain plugins are displaying users email addresses alongside usernames on plugin cards.


The first two plugins in that list the author as Username <>

Expected: I would expect those to only have Username

  • Milestone Plugin Directory v3.0 deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

In the cases listed here, the plugin authors have specifically set this as their Author header in the plugin -

I don't think the directory should specifically strip out email addresses if people deliberately put it into a public header, and regardless, the email is public as part of the code and will be shown in the wp-admin dashboard once you install the plugin.
