    I prefer totally tabs, I find it more understandable and prettier.

    I really really hope they also bring back /updated/ as entry point. I haven’t visited the new Plugin Directory since it was nixed and honestly losing interest in WordPress plugin development as a result. Browsing /updated/ was my favourite leisure many times per week (further explanation) (meta ticket)

    Awesome work ! Even the Installation tab is back. ? It wasn’t important for most of the plugins but it was critical for some of them.
    One suggestion though, under the Developement tab, the contributors list is on the right sidebar, but on the main Description/Details tab, it’s at the bottom of the main section, so why not move it to the right sidebar as well since there is some free page estate there ?

    A huge step in the right direction. The whole change seemed like a “new coke” issue. I for one am quite happy that progress toward restoring the “classic” formula is being made. It might be beneficial to do a retrospective on why the changes were made, why they’ve failed and what lessons were learned.

    Well decision. Hope the support forum page also gets the tab navigation so that it fits seamless into the current layout.

    Tabs should load content via AJAX anyone else agree?

      Tabs don’t load any content at all. It’s still a single page design.

      With screenshots on the first tab, the majority of page weight would be accounted for in the initial tab load anyways. If screenshots were moved back to their own tab, I agree that content should be loaded via AJAX so as not to require several images to be downloaded that may never be seen.

    Great work, well done. The first version was a nightmare.

    I’m so happy to have tabs back. I knew the read more mock ups were going to be a problem, and vocally complained endlessly about them, but I sincerely did try to get acustomed to them… they were however really awful.

    Also delighted to have more reviews show (thanks Brian Hogg for raising and pushing for that).

    It’s looking and working great again

    It’s better than it was, but this is a very poor implementation of tabs. All that happens here is that the reader is taken down the page. This then makes it impossible to use the tabs at all until the user either scrolls back up or uses the browser’s back button. That’s just bizarre.

    Tabs should work as the userscript browser extension had them working.

    Good news. Finally. Much more usable.

    I couldn’t find the Changelog. You have to go to the Development tab to find it. This is awkward.

    I agree the tabs are a lot better the new design was so unfamiliar.
