Description

(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.

that makes sense, thanks for the tip.

But I still wonder why the users hit "share a plugin" button if their intention is to download a plugin ...
