Plugin Directory Admin: Renaming Plugins Should be More Ajaxy

Reported by: Ipstenu Owned by:

Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


Right now plugins can be renamed before they're approved/rejected. This is good!

The problem happens when you try to rename a plugin to one that's already taken.

For example, if you try to rename a plugin from woocommerce-plugin-for-wordpress to woocommerce you go to a page that says the name is taken. From there, you have to click the back button, refresh the page, and try again.

That rename check could be smarter.


1) Ajax check if the slug is taken and throw an alert box if it is before saving

2) One of those 'as you type' checks like they have for if a username is available, again, before you click save.
