#4383 reopened defect

Plugin 'Reviews' tab should provide more information to logged-out users

Reported by: DannyCooper Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: high
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords: needs-patch


To a logged out user, it doesn't appear there is any way to review a plugin:


The Support tab is a bit clearer:


However, if a plugin already has a lot of support threads, then that tab is unclear too as the message gets pushed down to the bottom. Example: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/olympus-google-fonts/

It would be useful if these messages showed at the top for logged-out users.

Hello @DannyCooper

Thank you for the ticket.

I just checked the plugin's review tab and I think it's now updated. I can see the reviews without login and with login in this tab easily. Hope it is visible to you as well.

Thank you

Hi @pratikgandhi,

This isnt fixed, please check a plugin that has no reviews when you are not logged in:


The tab is completely blank.

Hi @DannyCooper

yes, There should be some message like 'This plugin has not been rated yet, Add my review'.

I'm not familiar enough with the .org codebase to submit a patch, but I think something as simple as this would work:
