[Bug] Possible to install plugins while Restricted mode active

Platform

[x] iOS
[ ] Android

Obsidian Mobile version: v1.4.1


This may also apply to desktop, but I haven’t tested that.

When a new user who has not disabled Restricted mode clicks on an Obsidian plugin link like obsidian://show-plugin?id=dataview, the plugin install window opens and allows the user to install the plugin. At that point, tapping the Enable button has no effect. This is certain to confuse new users.

Instead, if Restricted mode is on, obsidian://show-plugin links should go to the “Turn on community plugins” screen, and then proceed to the plugin screen if plugins are enabled.

Or, if that latter is too difficult, just take them to the Community Plugins screen and let them go back and click the link again if they wish to install the plugin.
