Title: No Plugins links ...
Post by: Steven 'lazalong' on March 07, 2008, 12:54:09 am
Hey

Finding the available plugins & their documentation on the website or wiki is difficult if you don't know what you search.

For example there is no direct link to the WxSmith documentation.
Such as http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=WxSmith_tutorials

It would be good IMO to reorganise the main wiki page a bit.
Perhaps adding a "Plugins" and "Tutorials" box.

I would also promote the available plugins on the main site. WxSmith being a big feature of CB.

Congratulations for the release.

On the main-page (http://wiki.codeblocks.org) of the wiki, thre is a link called Index (http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Special:Allpages), guess where it leads to ?

:shock: You find this sufficient for people which don't know about CB to find infos about plugins ?

It is not even very obvious it is a link (at least not with Firefox).

Also the index is not very... organised. What is GLFW for example?
Do you expect the newbies to click on all links or do you just want to scare them away? ;)

Adding a box on the main page with a link to http://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php?title=Code::Blocks_Plugins
and updating it slightly would be sufficient.

It's a wiki, so feel free to do it.

By the way I'm using Iceweasel aka Firefox and for me it looks like a link.
The letters are quite small, but that's a problem with my Laptop's resolution.

Of course it does, unless someone deliberately changes the settins so that links don't show as links... :)

Aren't plugins supposed to be listed on the homepage now that 8.02 is released?  I thought I read that somewhere.  That would be convenient.
