As if you didn’t notice, I changed to a new theme on the site. It’s OK. I’m not unhappy with it, but it appears to have busted my plugin index. Whatever is in this theme, doesn’t appear to work well with the ratings plugin I embed in the index and causes the table to go all weird. Anyway, I was looking into fixing it when I noticed something even more terrible – at least two-thirds of the plugins listed are just dead links. I didn’t click on all of them, but after three categories of well over half being non-existent, I kind of got the idea the trend would continue.
Anyway, I’m looking into a new plugin index. One that will be a bit stripped down as in no platform specification, paid/free info, screenshots, etc. Pretty much, it’ll just be a categorized list of available plugin names, links, and a short description. Fact is, Media Center plugins just aren’t the rage anymore with the popularity of standalone streamers and other front-ends like Media Browser 3 (standalone coming), XBMC, Plex, etc.
