Installing javascript only plugins as admin


(Intuit Ion) #1

I have noticed that javascript plugins which are without the option: server_side can also be installed using the admin panel: Admin ⇒ Customize ⇒ New ⇒ Header

I’m making this topic, because some users may be interested in installing plugins this way. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems like the result is exactly the same for those non server-side scripts.

For the javascript plugins that are loaded server-side, like the pirate speak plugin, this method fails partly, as the plugin will only work in the editor. I still find it usefull tough to put those scripts as custom header, as it easy to test plugins in this way.

Two points:

  1. Is it true that there is no difference if I install javascript only plugins without the server_side option this way ?
  2. Feature request: Having the option as admin to install javascript only plugins server-side
