notepad++ 8.5 url for install/update plugins
I have several VMs behind firewall that seems to be blocking ability to install or update plugins using plugin admin. The plugin admin will come up, but if I attempt to install a plugin, it looks like it works, however when notepad++ loads again, the plugin I requested is not there.
Can someone tell me the URL used to grab in the plugin files? I will see if I can get company to open firewall to that location.
Otherwise, I will have to manually install and update.

If you use Plugins Admin you can see the home site for a plugin, e.g.:
If you look at a few different plugins, I’m sure you’ll notice that there isn’t a nice and tidy single source for the plugins.
Actually, maybe this view illustrates the point better:
Thanks Alan, I did notice that the homepage seemed to be different for almost every plugin. I was not aware that the plugin manager would be installing from each separate url/homepage. It does make sense though. I probably will just download on a machine that can access the plugins that I want to use, and then copy to firewalled servers, and manually install, or I could just ask for access to the specific plugins that I will use/need
Probably some projects more tightly control their plugins.
In Notepad++ land, it is a free for all.
All Plugins Admin does is pull things together a bit.
Often people start getting belligerent with Notepad++ developers about some plugin functionality or bug they don’t like. In a loosely coupled plugin arrangement, you can imagine that doesn’t get the complainer very far.
Makes total sense, thanks again
