Feature request #14943
"download plugin" button goes unnoticed
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No|
(Moved from https://github.com/qgis/QGIS-Django/issues/23 )
In the past few days, I've had a few users in the OSGeo IRC channel ask for help about creating an OSGeo ID account for... downloading qgis plugins.
After double-checking that, indeed, qgis plugins can be downloaded without logging in with an OSGeo ID, I realised something.
The "download this plugin" button is small, and is hidden behind three clicks (plugin info → versions list → last version → download). This is confusing users, making them click on the big "share plugin" ("upload a new plugin") button.
I hereby request a big, fat "download latest version of this plugin" button on every plugin page.
