Description

There are occasions when I want to be able to determine what plugins are enabled from the Web Admin page, and it is tedious to expand each folded section and inspect the checkboxes. Initially, I started thinking about a solution similar to what is present for other folded sections, such as attachments, for which a number is shown next to the heading to indicate the number of attachments.

What might be more useful in this case, is to change the background color of the form depending on whether the plugin is enabled or disabled. Maybe that is not obvious enough though. hasienda has done some nice work on the AccountManagerPlugin lately using icons guide the user through the configuration process (see th:#8930 and this attachment). That got me thinking that maybe a check or x icon could be used to indicate a plugins enabled or disabled status (with enabled being defined as at least one component being enabled).

Replying to ryan.j.ollos@…:

maybe a check or x icon could be used to indicate a plugins enabled or disabled status (with enabled being defined as at least one component being enabled).

If icons are used I would suggest some kind of tri-state logic:

  1. [ ] no components are enabled
  2. [o] some components are enabled
  3. [x] all componets are enabled
