Use Case

  • Install or update a couple of plugins via configure
Current Workflow
  1. go to "Plugins" > "Find more extensions"
  2. click on the upgrade/install link
  3. enter password
  4. Wait till the plugin is installed/upgraded and go back to configure
  5. again, go to "Plugins" > "Find more extensions"
  6. click on the upgrade/install link
  7. enter password
  8. Wait till plugin is installed/upgraded and go back to configure
  9. ... repeat above steps up to n times (n= number of plugins you need to update)
You can shorten the above workflow by hitting the back button in your browser after step 4 but it is still annoying.


Provide a checkbox for each plugin so you can simply tick the plugins you need and upgrade/install them in one go.

I am not arguing against this. But please do not work in this for 4.2.0. Too much risk to break something.
