This is a great development from WP – one of the reasons it is so powerful as a blog platform is the large number of developers adding features to it via plugins – now we can find them!

    thanks for the info darren! That is really a relief on us, so that we don’t have to search on other sites for plugins.

    thanks darren,

  2. cd says:

    thanks. i just checked it, but there are not many plugins I need. most of them deal with rating, polling, and the like.

    At last!

    It’s a relief for the users as well as plugin coders.

    As someone who has built a wp plugin (something about tracking outgoing clicks) in the past, trying to submit to wp plugin directories was a pain in the neck. We have one official now, thanks for the heads-up darren!

    at last! It’s up, I’ve been waiting for this for soo long! :D These are the only plugins compatible with wp 2.1.2 right?

  5. Mae says:

    But there’s a flaw I just noticed, I wish they just put a list of categories like before instead of tags.. it’s easier to browse plugins that way don’t you think?

    It’s about time they did this!

    Yes, this is indeed a welcome addition for the WordPress community.
    Plugins makes WP function even better, and thank God for plugins developers out there that does this for free.

    Too bad they dont have a feed for new/updated plugins.
    But great news! :-)

  9. Brown Baron says:

    Thanks for the heads up. I’ve been waiting for this. I’m sure the number of plugins will increase in a few days.
