    I think you’re the buddypress specialist 🙂
    You did not put all your plugins on the directory: https://wordpress.org/plugins/ ?
    This allows you to make traffic to your website and … that I can give you 5 * 🙂

    For small plugins, you put the setting of your plugins: /wp-admin/admin.php?page=bp-settings
    I did not see right away, who did it?
    And why not a tab like Rt media with a link to your site 😉

    Hi Herve,
    Thank you for the suggestions. Thank you for the kind intention 🙂

    For some reason, We wanted to avoid pushing smaller plugins on wp.org and I am not sure why we did. I am reconsidering it.

    For smaller plugins, the setting idea was mine. I am sorry It caused confusion. Adding another panel for 1-2 settings is a nuisance for site admins and we wanted to avoid that.

    About the tab like RT Media:- I do not like the way Yoast, RT media and some other plugin/themes advertise. I too run wp sites and I like the plugin which don’t have too much advertisement. That’s why.

    If I am not comfortable with the advertisements, I won’t force my plugin users to have the same feeling. I know that It can help us become more visible in this day and age but I am still not comfortable with it.

    May be we will put a small link in future, but do not have any such plans yet. Still believe in good old days style that if people like something, they will look for it themselves 🙂

    To be honest, I am confused whether to add a tab with advertisement for us or not. I know It is a good decision for Business and visibility but my personal preference have been to be as subtle as possible. None of our plugin adds a top level menu(except MediaPress) for the same reason.

    Thank you

    Hi Brajesh,

    I like your way of seeing. I respect it.
    Without putting a link, can you just indicate the name of the plugin (and buddyDev) next to the options en your plugin, it helps users like me, to see who add options to the BuddyPress control panel

    Have a good day
