Plugin Repository Should Have A Favorites Button

@WraithKenny – #WordPress plugin repo should have a favorites button. – via Twitter

Now THAT’S a good idea! Stretch it further by giving us the option decision to make our favorite lists private or public on There are all sorts of things you can do from there on in.

  1. Oh yes please! Great idea.. And please calculate a rating that’s based on the number of likes or times someone added the plugin to it’s list of favourites and show this rating in search results and make it sortable :)


  2. It would certainly be a good idea. I like seeing what plugins other people use.


  3. That’s a great idea. could use a bit of social web spice to make the site more functional and useful.


  4. I often see a plugin that looks great and I want to remember it for later when I have a use for it. A favorites feature would be great for that purpose.


  5. I really like the idea. It would be great if the user had to vote for their version (works yes or no) before adding to their favorites too. We really need more voters out there. I know many users look at the votes before installing a plugin, but not many vote themselves.

    Or add to their favorites with the WP version it worked on and give public stats.
