Extensions as plugins = Plugins chaos. Some suggestions.
I was present at online google meeting and I already then I was expressing my concerns. I agree to some point they could be better as plugins but...
1. Installing extensions as plugins right now is kinda annoying dont you think ? You have to install it one by one, in a new window. Should be install All option ! A must have. The also could be categorized to some groups with the same Install whole group option.
2. Having another 20+ plugins in your plugin list creates a messy and long list... Its a good idea with Pagelines plugins sub category, but IF we cant avoid extensions as plugins they shouldnt be connected with all the rest on a default list.
Please rethink it and consider my suggestions.
Anyone from Beta testers having similar feelings ?
Developer Access to Plugins
Is there no longer access to some of the plugins, even with the developer account?
SEO: Content in Pagelines sections vs. content written in WordPress
Hi, is it true that content written in PageLines sections (textbox, PLnextbox, mediabox) doesn't show up in search engines? I am getting that impression. If that's the case, isn't this a significant flaw in PageLines?
If true, can I place the same text in the box provided for writing on the WordPress dashboard in an effort to improve SEO? Can I actually place better, more SEO-friendly text in the WordPress box, since that text doesn't appear on my site but search engines would be looking for it? Is there any reason not to try this?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
Changing plugin text strings
How do I find the correct Plugin text string and alter it without affecting updates?
Certain Plugin Updates Overriding DMS Sections
I wanted to let the community know that there is a problem that has happened on a couple of DMS sites that we manage. The problem is that there are certain plugins/sections that DMS uses (such as 'Accordions' and 'Sidekick') that will appear to have an update. However, when you actually update the plugin it is replaced but a similarly named plugin. Here are the original plugins:
Original: http://dms.elsue.com/accordions/ (authored by @ellenmva)
Replaced with: https://wordpress.org/plugins/accordions/
Original: http://www.pagelines.com/shop/third-party-extensions/sidekick/ (authored by Evan Mattson)
Replaced with: https://wordpress.org/plugins/sidekick/
I just wanted to know if there is anything I can do to make sure that other plugins/sections do not get replaced when I update them in the future as well as bring it to the DMS community's attention so that others do not experience the same confusion and frustration. Any thoughts would be very welcome in order to avoid this in the future.
