Using Entrepôt

Thanks to Entrepôt you can enjoy an alternative source of public & free Plugins that are hosted on GitHub.com. Once activated, you will be able to browse, install, activate and upgrade the registered plugins directly from your WordPress Administration.

Browsing the Entrepôt

To browse the Entrepôt you need to open the "Add Plugins" Plugins' sub menu of your WordPress Administration. If you use a multisite configuration, you need to do this at the Network Administration level.

The Entrepôt Tab

You will see an Entrepôt tab after the WordPress ones. Click on it to browse registered plugins.

You can use the search field to filter the plugins according to the keywords you typed. It will look for them into the Plugin names and descriptions.

Install an Entrepôt registered plugin

This process can only be achieved within the Entrepôt tab of the "Add Plugins" Administration screen.

Plugin Install

Simply click on the "Install" button of the plugin you wish to download into your /wp-content/plugins directory. Once the download is complete, the "Install" button will be edited for an "Activate" button.

Activate an Entrepôt registered plugin

You can alternatively activate the plugin from the "Plugins" Administration screen by clicking on the "Activate" link, or you can do it from the Entrepôt tab of the "Add Plugins" Administration screen by clicking on the "Activate" blue button.

Upgrading a plugin

Plugins screen

Just like any WordPress.org plugin, you can upgrade an Entrepôt plugin from the "Plugins" Administration screen or the "Upgrade" Administration screen.

changelog

If you wish to view the upgrade's changelog, you can simply click on the "View version tag details" link.

You can also upgrade an Entrepôt plugin or the Entrepôt plugin itself from the Entrepôt tab of the "Add Plugins" Administration screen by clicking on the "Upgrade" button.

Contributing to an Entrepôt registered plugin

If you wish to contribute to a plugin, you can display the plugin details by clicking on the "View details" link of the plugin's row into the "Plugins" Administration screen, or by clicking on the "More details" link of the plugin's card into the Entrepôt tab of the "Add Plugins" Administration screen.

changelog

You will open this modal window. At the bottom of it you will find the "Contribute" button you can click to submit a new pull request on the plugin's GitHub repository. You can also click on the "Report an issue" blue button to inform the plugin's author of a bug. In this case, make sure to describe your WordPress configuration and the steps to reproduce the issue into the report you'll write.

Flagging an Entrepôt plugin.

In this modal window, you will also find a "Flag" red button. You can use this button to inform me the plugin is not playing nice. This can happen in the following cases:

  • A security issue,
  • Rude behaviors (eg: spamming, trolling, sharing pornographic material, etc..),
  • Prohibited by law behaviors,
  • Paid services, freemiums.

I'll check your flag and eventually remove the plugin from the Entrepôt.
