Third-Party Plugins

This page is intended for plugin developers to make their plugins more visible to users. We don't provide hosting for plugins as we simply do not have the resources to do so. We do, however, encourage anyone hosting their own plugins to add them to the list below!

Note that we do not support any of these plugins. If you have problems with the plugins, please contact the plugin's author using resources available on the plugin's website. Please do not file tickets in the Pidgin bug tracking system, as we do not develop or support these plugins.
