-We like to offer you a few of plugins for the Geany IDE here.<br />
-You can browse through the plugins in the left navigation bar, you'll find there also the installation manual for each plugin.
+What you will find here is a lot of plugin stuff for
+<a href="http://www.geany.org">Geany</a>. There is a
+<a href="https://sourceforge.net/projects/geany-plugins/">Geany Plugins project</a>
+containing a lot of plugins, which is developed by various developers on
+<a href="https://sourceforge.net/projects/geany-plugins/">SourceForge</a>.
+Any plugin delivered with the Geany Plugins project is listed on the left
+sidebar (Or rather any plugin providing a valid README file written in
+reStructuredText. There are some plugins in an early development state, not
+having such a README file yet.)
+There also are some third party plugins for Geany. They are already listed on
+the left navigation bar, too, but maybe content is missing, yet. Feel free to
+kick our buts on IRC to complete also this pages and fill them with
+<p>If you are searching for <em>any</em> plugin for Geany or information about
+a plugin, this website is (or will be) the right place to get those
+The pages for any plugin delivered with the Geany Plugins project are
+automatically generated by a shell script using
+<a href="http://docutils.sourceforge.net/">rst2html from doctools</a>
+and <a href="http://tidy.sourceforge.net/">HTML Tidy</a>. Basis for that are
+the README files for each plugin, checked out and updated from
+<a href="http://geany-plugins.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/geany-plugins/">SVN
+</a>, so if you think there's something wrong, you can feel free to <a href=
+issues</a> against the according plugin (or even this website) at <a href=
+</a>.<br /> The <a href=
+>source code of this script</a> is available on SourceForge, too.
+If you are a plugin developer and wonder why your plugin is not listed here,
+there may be several reasons for that:
+	<li>you didn't knew of this site yet</li>
+	<li>the maintainers of this site didn't know of your plugin yet</li>
+	<li>your plugin is part of the Geany Plugins project, but</li>
+	<ul>
+		<li>you don't have a README file written in reStructuredText</li>
+		<li>or your README file is empty</li>
+		<li>or a README file doesn't even exist</li>
+	</ul>
+For any of these reasons, you will find more detailed hints on the
+<a href="index.php?site=README">List or update a plugin page</a>.
