If you have been wanting a plugin directory for WordPress, but aren’t happy with the options currently out there, the folks over at WordPress.org have gone ahead and created a plugin directory for us all to use.
From the WordPress.org blog:
having all these plugins isn’t that useful if you’ve got no place to find them. Even though we have provided development hosting at wp-plugins.org for years, we hadn’t had a user interface to the plugins hosted there, which I think was a travesty.
No longer! Our ever-expanding “extend” section now has a brand-spanking new plugins directory where you can browse, download, rate, and comment on all your favorite plugins. I highly encourage you to go check it out.
For users, this means:
- There is now a central place to find and download WordPress plugins.
- You can get a much better idea about plugin quality and compatibility from the site.
- In the future you’ll be able to get notification inside of WordPress about plugins you use that have updates.
Check it out at WordPress.org.
