    To update the ignored packages search for the following in mediaportal.xml:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. <entry name="ignoredfullscreenpackages">["b7738156-b6ec-4f0f-b1a8-b5010349d8b1","88f9a821-bd54-4a40-9bfc-222b3324973d","269bd257-7ce5-450a-b786-1c2834c81849"]</entry>

    If you browse extensions using "MP Website Extensions" view and navigate to single extension, "Changelog" does not show anything for any plugin. It's nothing critical but a bit confusing.

    Maybe you have an outdated skin, the button should be hidden when there is no change logs to show...this is the case for all extensions when viewing from the Website view. If its happening in the latest StreamedMP / DefaultWide let me know and I can fix it there.

    Wouldn't it be nice to have a value set by the author to the installation file to tell Extensions plugin wether or not it should show up. That way it is not up to the user to know which plugins not to install with extensions plugin.
    The other way around a user who doesn't know will not edit that xml you mentioned and will end up with a hung up system.
    This feature is nice since it will keep MP from crashing and is one more step for user friendliness, but this needs to be automatic to give advantage to unexperienced users.

    What do you think?

    Hi Mr Crabs, there is nothing stopping a plugin installer setting this at install time. Although it will probably only take affect after the first install as the setting would be in memory.

    Thanks catavolt, I will take a look.

    EDIT: all that extended info should only be shown when in web-view, this is conditionally hidden from the skin. Im not sure why that is not working as it should.

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. <visible>string.equals(#MPE.View.Name,#MPEI.Translation.MPOnlineExtensions.Label)</visible>
