          Just noting that there is no discussions field for plugin entries, as there was for the old modules and plugins database.

          Hi Apu, hope you don't mind me adding you as a watcher to request an extra field in the plugin entry form - 'Discussion about this plugin' under Useful links. I can then start adding forum links for add-ons such as the Questionnaire activity which have their own forum in Using Moodle.

          Ah yes, its not just a simple 'add field action' unfortunately, i'll need to pop in some code.
          MDLSITE-2116 is linked now, it should just be a case of duplicating other url fields with a different name.

          Thanks Apu. I have now added forum links each category description in the plugins category, so we're ready for forum links to be added automatically to each plugin in the category (once each plugin has a discussion field).

          Just to clarify, how are you intending this to work for plugins without their own forum? Will all Blocks just automatically get a link to the Blocks forum?

          Yes, that's correct Mark. The aim is to encourage people to use forums for discussing plugins, rather than comments. When forum thread subscription is implemented on moodle.org (eventually!), it will make things a lot easier.

          Each plugin category now includes a forum link in the description.

          Certificate
          Dataform
          Dialogue
          Face-to-face
          Game
          Hotpot
          Quizport
          Journal
          Questionnaire
          Scheduler
          Configurable Reports block
