Description

I have written this extension...

https://extensions.libreoffice.org/en/extensions/show/marathi-spellchecker

I do not understand why does it show tens of older versions of the extension on the same page? Is it possible to remove or hide them?

The people are downloading old version (by mistake). And it takes a lot to scroll down.

Every extension project can provide various files, eg. to support the different OS. You can archive any of it yourself. Learn more at https://extensions.libreoffice.org/en/home/using-this-site-as-an-extension-maintainer/

Drop me a line if you run into trouble.

Shantanu claims that archive works for newer versions only but not older. I see Archive in the hamburger menu (attachment) and wonder if user with lower privileges get the same.

I do not get the "archive" option as shown in your screenshot.
My screen looks like as the attached image.

If you expect this fix to take time, can you please archive old versions using your account? I need only the latest one 8.0 to be available.

Was able to archive one or two of the release but not all. It just nothing happens on click.

Can you simply delete the version if it can't be archived? Or an update in database? I am keen on de-cluttering the UI.

After switching between EN and DE I could eventually archive all older releases but 8.0. Maintainer should still be have permission to do.

Thank you so much. I really appreciate your help.
Can you remove the older versions from other extensions as well?

Hi Shantanu, JJ here

I just published some changes to the UI to de-clutter it. Let me know what you think.

Meanwhile I'll be working on the issue of archiving the older extensions

The new User Interface is awesome. I appreciate the design decision. Can you re-open and fix this?

Hi Shantanu,

I think is confusing to click on the tags on the extension page and take you back to search page. For the moment I will not re open that issue but open to comments

If clicking on the tag does not show the other similar extensions, then why is the tag clickable in the first place. What does the hyperlink suppose to do? You can make it a plain text button if you do not want the user to click on it.
