I've noticed I tend to be flagging a lot of plugin questions as off-topic (often Woocommerce related).

In What topics can I ask about here?, we clearly state:

Note that we do not handle questions:


  • questions concerning third party plugins and themes

It's also provided as a reason to close, when flagging a post.

However in the tour, this point is not mentioned under the Don't ask about... section.

When I join new SE sites, I tend to read the tour much sooner than I venture through all of the help pages. I'm not sure if others are the same, but the tour is certainly more prominently linked and is generally much easier to digest.

Should we add 3rd party plugins & themes as an 'off-topic reason' to the Tour page?

Agreed, we should probably review and equalize with that list with https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic

Will do later, unless any cons come up in discussion. :)

And done.
