on w8-32, when I fresh intall npp 7.5, all I get
folder C:\Program Files\Notepad++\plugins
APIs folder which has 20 xml files
disabled folder which is empty
config folder which is empty
at the time of installation, I didn’t change any default at all,
I didn’t tick on “don’t use APPdata”, nor on “allow plugins to be installed from…”
page https://notepad-plus-plus.org/resources.html reads
“- Plugin Manager plugin is included in Notepad++ release. It gets jobs done very well.”
but the Plugin Manager is not installed by npp installer, so how do I get plugins downloaded from server?
Also, the page http://docs.notepad-plus-plus.org/index.php?title=Plugin_Central reads
How to install?
Usually, the only installation procedure plugins require is to
place the dll in the plugins subfolder of the Notepad++ install folder;
place any configuration file it comes with in plugin\config
preferrably, place all documentation files in plugin\doc, or in some subfolder of it
please note that it mentioned a “plugin\config” and “plugin\doc”, which are not even created by npp installer, which has created an APPDATA “plugins\config” folder, there is an additional plugin"s". doc folder is not created anywhere.
so the wiki itself is contradicting the installer creation.
When I click Setting - Imports plugins
it accesses only my current harddisk, meaning I should have downloaded and kept plugins somewhere. That means a new user will not be able to install even plugin-manager, so he can’t get any plugin.
it has become very cryptic.
Something is wrong in npp installer. it doesn’t do said actions.
