Summary14582: Feature : add a homeUrl for home page of plugin/theme
Description

IMO : plugin and theme NEED

  • an home url : mandatory : where did you find documentation, more information etc … (can be the README of a git repo)
  • a support URL : Then more clear if there are support: if support are limesurvey/forum : free optional support, git issue : free support but less optionnal , support link : «real support» . This surely can be improved : maybe check with @Mazi or @tpartner if need a clear difference between free and pro support.

And optionally

  • An optional user url (because it can be theuser page on limesurvey.org)
  • An optional source code URL ? This shown if source code is free or not for starting (to use, to update etc … according to licenc in repo)
Steps To Reproduce

I agree that adding a URL where one can link to additional information/documentation would be helpful. We are planning such pages for our plugins.

From my point of view we do not need to differentiate between free and paid support. Simply link to either forum or contact web page and if users get in touch with you directly you can still tell them that for certain requests support can only be paid support.

OK,

Then :
homeUrl : the plugin/theme page => can be a specific plugin page or a global page ( ww.example.org or www.example.org/limesurvey-plugins/mylimesurveyplugin)
supportUrl : a way to contact dev : github, contact page, limesurvey forum thread ? , stackoverflow.com tag (some floss tool do this) ? Email ?

Optional :
authorUrl : by default to https://www.limesurvey.org/limestore?view=author&owner_id=3578 owner page ? Or leave it empty ? Can be anything (github page, twitter accont, facebook fan page … website …)

Would "manualUrl" make more sense than "homeUrl"?

Or "documentationUrl".

No, because it can‘t be another things than manual/doc :)
It can be then git repo for example.

In my opinion

Yes, but the LimeStore page should BE the homeUrl. There shouldn't be a need to link to ANOTHER home.

Then : where to put complete documentation URL ? HTML editor don't have url (understand this)
In develop : you name it Web page: seems related to THIS plugin, not to THIS dev :).

Maybe just rename devUrl to docUrl then ?

Ah, right, the home url is needed for LimeSurvey application. OK, let me think. :d

@Mazi use supportUrl for documentation https://www.limesurvey.org/limestore?view=extensiondetails&id=40 . Why not
@me use authorUrl : https://www.limesurvey.org/limestore?view=extensiondetails&id=36

Need clarification ;)
