Site feature request: browse comments for specific plugin

It's not immediately obvious how to browse comments for, for example, just e-newsletter. I'd rather read through the existing comments before asking a question, rather than just knee-jerk shoot off a question.

Just a suggestion... :slight_smile:

    @David hi there, its kind of already in place but not the most easy of places, if you look on the right hand side of the list you see plugins general etc, well clicking on that will filter it down to category level, find the plugin or whatever you are looking for click that question then on the right under the picture you will see for example

    More Membership discussions »

    another quick way is just to enter for example marketpress in the search box and it will filter the responses to that then you can drill down using the right link again.

    Not the easiest of methods but once you get the hang of it its quite fast,

    but +1 from me for a more obvious route.

    Yeah, you also used to be able to go to the plugin and click on the discussion link, and see the discussion for just that plugin. I'm quite capable of using Search, but I'm also good at whining and asking for things my way.

    Feeeeeex it! Purty please.

    DAvid, I totally agree with you!!!!!

    And have been asking for the same!!!!!

    My workaround that I use for now: I go to the project page that I want browse, click the "ask a question" link then just exit the popup that comes up. What's left is a plugin specific forum listing : )

    ROFLMAO hey +1 from me i can be a real whiner too, you should see a huge row i am currently having with a dev over at themeforest...

    Poor guy i almost feel sorry for him.

    But it runs along the lines of

    Me:Your theme doesnt do things the normal way.
    Him:Yes it does, but to get it to work this way you cant use this wordpress setting or it will cause problems with the display or may produce blank pages, its the way our theme works with wordpress.
    Me:So what you are saying your theme works if we use it the way you tell us we have to because of the unusual way you coded it.
    Him:yes but we think its cool and very good.
    Me:So it is a wordpress or a theme problem? if you say i cant use certain basic wordpress functions because your theme produces random unpredictable results, then i would say its a theme problem
    Him:No thats just the way we designed it.

    GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    That's why this stuff is all so much fun. I tell myself every day that I can quit using computers any time I want.

    I tell myself that, but it's not true. Sigh.

    I should say that I really like the WPMU folks and have found this site incredibly valuable. I'm whining out of affection.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
