I've just become aware that some of the plug-ins on my site are not up to date. I had assumed that when updates were available for plug-ins, that these would become available as a software update in the ACP, but this is not default behaviour. I'm very surprised by this.
Can WoltLab please consider that when plug-ins are installed on sites, that the plug-in developers package servers (which contains the updates for the plug-ins) are automatically installed too. In the meantime, could WoltLab put some Notice into the ACP informing novice admins that this function does not happen by default and they need to refer to third party sites for updates and support.
There is a wider point and perhaps it's been discussed long before I ever came onto this site and that is of support for plug-ins in general. WoltLab sells plug-ins from this site and checks them, that is excellent, but to get support for this plug-ins you have to go to the plug-in developer sites, which if you have multiple plug-ins, means creating accounts on multiple different sites. Very messy.
As the plug-ins are already sold and checked for consistency here, could WoltLab not go one step further and have this site as a central hub for everything to do with Plug-ins, including support and updates for them?
