Feature request #19125
Always show deprecated plugins in Plugin Manager (remove the option to hide/show them)
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Yes||Resolution:||wontfix|
|Easy fix?:||No||Copied to github as #:||26955|
See this dev list thread:
We currently do not have a way to show alternative plugins to a user which is searching for a (by us) deprecated plugin.
Average users will never see the deprecated plugins, because by default they are hidden.
My request is to remove the checkbox, and just always show deprecated, plugins, thereby give us a way to show alternative pluygins (preferably clickable...) in the description of the deprecated plugin.
Deprecated plugins could maybe show half transparent or so? To clearly show that this is a deprecated plugin?

I made a warning icon instead of the half-transparent style.
Showing the alternative plugins would require changes in the repository to expose it in the metadata response and I'm afraid we lack some manpower here... Although as soon as the new tag is added to the metadata, it's easy to put it (as a clickable link) to the manager.
