#532 Use long names in plugins config (or shortnames on website)

Tom Hundt

At the moment, it's hard to figure out what the various included-by-default plugins are, by attempting to cross reference the list in the config program to the listing on the website.

To illustrate the problem: There's one called "abook_take" which is easy to find: Address Take. There's another called "sent_subfolders" which seems to correspond to "Variable Sent Folder". Okay, fine. But what about "info". I still don't know what one does. Is it "Ask User Info"? Who knows. (I doubt it: it's not marked as being added to the core plugins.)

So, would you please either add the long names to the config program list, or the short names to the website list. Or use both in both places.

For reference, here is the plugin list I've currently got (running 1.4.6 with four non-core plugins):

    The plugins that come with SM by default are not guaranteed to be listed AT ALL on the website. Only those that were previously third party and have been adapted into the SM core are noted as such on the website. You don't need to cross-reference anything; any plugin that is not marked as obsolete is not part of SM core. FYI, 1.5.2+ shows the long names for plugins in the configuration tool and in configtest.php. Our new plugins website, long in planning and no delivery date as of yet, will also have information about the "short" (directory) name as well. Thanks for the interest.
