Description

I would like to put a link to the list of my plugins. One would have on the profile pages directly can address one of the tabs, for example http://profiles.wordpress.org/fstaude#content-plugins for plugintab on my profile. Unfortunately, you can not call from outside so that.

Personally I think the tabbed UI which has been added to the profile page should be removed. It only serves to make it more convoluted to see a user's plugins, favourites, and activity.

Previously, you could get an instant feel for a user. Now you need to click on each tab.

Replying to johnbillion:

Mel and Jen had different opinions about that during the design phase, so initially we planned on building a tabbed version and a single-page version and then A/B testing them, but ran out of time and decided to just launch the tabbed version.

It may seem like overkill now, especially on profiles without much data, but we also have plans to add more features and data to them, which will make the tabs more useful, to keep things nicely organized and un-cluttered.

None of that is really relevant to this ticket, though. If we have tabs, they should be deep-linkable. If you'd like propose switching to the single page design, could you open a separate ticket for that?

Added a bit of JS to the profiles page which will cause the hash based URLs to directly cause their corresponding tab to pop to the front. So these direct links will work now.

Note that I don't guarantee those links will remain unchanged if the page gets redesigned, but for now, this works fine.

Yes, it works perfectly. Thank you so much.
