  1. Favorites

    Thank you very much for removing the Visual Studio Gallery and replacing it with something that doesn't even half of the functionality. Instead of waiting for the ability to have different Favorite configurations, we now have to ask to just have Favorites. It is extremely obvious that none of you are Microsoft dog-feed the systems at all.

    We need Favorites, multiple while you're at it, so that it is easier to rebuild systems, and/or share configurations with others that you are working with. I think its absolutely ridiculous that you can't even see what you've previously downloaded. Having a site…

    • Have a question and answer section

      In the marketplace it would usefull to have a question and answers tab in the extensions page.

      Currently people enter comments directly in the review section and in doing so all give low stars for what is often a question.

      Having a question and comment page/tab might help in improving the true value of the rating of an extension.

      Some people supply a link to their github issues page, but that is rare

      • RSS Feed for extensions gallery

        It would be great to have a RSS feed for the new extensions added to the gallery.
        It might not be related to this repo but I couldn't find a repo for the extension gallery website.

        • Public REST API for Visual Studio Marketplace

          It would be great if we have public VS marketplace API to fetch details like
          1. Details of particular extension
          2. Average Rating and Rating count
          3. Installs VSTS or OnPrem
          4. Get all the extensions for the publisher
          5. Get all the extensions of a specific category or tag

          • Markdown rendering of readme.md for vscode extensions

            The markdown renderer for extensions for vscode has a bug when rendering normal text. Single line breaks in the markdown source are rendered with <br/> elements, when this shouldn't be done. Lines should be concatenated until a blank line appears, which starts a new paragraph.

            • Add a report button for submissions that are bogus or that have issues

              The new website doesn't have a report button. It does appear you have cut down on the number of **** subs significantly, but it isn't perfect.

              • New VS marketplace doesn't allow asking questions without giving a rating!?

                I find the functionality of the new Visual Marketplace to be worse than the old one.

                I noticed most people who have a question about something that doesn't work properly or just have a question about an extension seem to give a one star star rating! Also why force me to rate the extension if I am just starting to use it and I have a question!?

                This is ridiculous and so unfair to the extension author which make the extension look bad. What were the marketplace developers thinking with there was a dedicated QA section in each extension and…

                • Theme preview

                  It would be useful to display a preview for the Visual Studio Code Theme extensions.

                  • Support for code examples in descriptions

                    On the old Visual Studio Extension Gallery, and in the current extension upload/edit page (description section), code examples are supported. But when displayed on the Visual Studio Marketplace the same code examples aren't rendered correctly.

                    The attached image shows how code example sections are rendered in the old Extension Gallery, the new Marketplace, and the extension upload/edit page.

                    Please could support for code examples be fixed on the Visual Studio Marketplace?

                    • Make it possible to install an extension server-wide

                      Right now you can install an extension per collection which is a viable model for VSTS. If I want a build task available for all collections on a onPrem server, this is quite the hassle.

                      My suggestion would be to make it possible to install an extension server-wide.

                      • threaded reviews and reponding to user reviews

                        I develop extensions for VSCode and get user reviews. when users demand something, I don't know how to reposnd to these reviews or get a clarification. The review discussions should be threaded.

                        • VisualStudio Gallery -> Marketplace migration is saddening

                          Thank you for considering this.

                          I'm developing a VisualStudio extension (https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=ArtemGevorkyan.MicroProfilerx64x86) that has been there for quite a while and VS Gallery worked fine for me (although it looked a bit outdated). Now after you migrated it to VisualStudio Marketplace I have these issues while managing my published extensions (there are two of them - 32bit and 32/64bit):

                          * No FAQ - mine had some useful information for the customers, now it's gone and the only ability to start Q/A is to get a bad review. I don't see FAQs that has been there already on the old…

                            • There is no link to the profile of the person who submitted the extension

                              The submitter's name appears twice on the extension page--at the top, and at the middle right. The top name is a link to a search for that user's other subs. The middle right name isn't a link at all. There is no easy way to get to that user's account from the extension page.

                              I sometimes want to see the user's account to determine how legitimate they are. For example, I saw in the RSS feed that someone who appeared to be submitting an extension related to Nintendo development appeared to claim they worked for Microsoft. I couldn't visit their…
