Can't understand (14 posts)

    I tried to submit my new plugin for review. It calls 'Directory & Classifieds plugin'. And here is what I just received from wordpress.org team:

    We're no longer accepting plugins with 'wordpress' as the defining term in the URL. This is, in part, because it's redundant to have a plugin on WordPress.org announce it's a WordPress plugin. However more importantly, you should be pushing your own brand name, not WPs, so it's to your advantage to use a slug of 'wp' or better yet, not at all. This means we also won't accept word-press or anything similar that attempts to game the system.
    Please resubmit this plugin without 'wordpress' in the title and we will review it.

    I can't understand what is wrong.

    What is the name and URL of the plugin that you submitted? I'm going to guess that it had 'wordpress' in it somewhere?

    The message is quite clear and tells you exactly why it was rejected, and exactly what you can do to have it approved. Take the time and read the message and see how it pertains to your plugin, and I'm sure that you'll see what they mean.

    I read the message and it is not clear for me, because there isn't 'wordpress' word in the title at all.

    My plugin
    http://wordpress.org/plugins/directory-classifieds-plugin/

    Sorry, but that URL isn't public, so I can't see it. What's the comment section of your plugin look like? That might give some idea. If not, I'd suggest that you reply to that email, and ask what's happened and wait for a response.

    How can I make it public when it was rejected?
    What is "comment section"?

    The only thing I can do is wait, wait and wait, what I was doing past 2 days.

    I mean the main section that holds the details of your plugin, inthe main file. As an example, this was taken from Yoasts SEO plugin...

    /*
    Plugin Name: WordPress SEO
    Version: 1.4.19
    Plugin URI: http://yoast.com/wordpress/seo/#utm_source=wpadmin&utm_medium=plugin&utm_campaign=wpseoplugin
    Description: The first true all-in-one SEO solution for WordPress, including on-page content analysis, XML sitemaps and much more.
    Author: Joost de Valk
    Author URI: http://yoast.com/
    Text Domain: wordpress-seo
    Domain Path: /languages/
    ...
    
    */

    And as far as waiting 2 days, everything I've heard on the forums here about the plugin team is that they are very very busy, so 2 days really isn't a lot of time to be waiting for a response. Times like this you need to be patient, no matter how frustrating it is.

    There isn't any word 'wordpress' in that section at all.

    I understand that I have to wait, but the only thing I'm afraid is that in next response from them they will say something like this:
    We're no longer accepting plugins with 'w' letter in the title or URL. This is, in part, because it's redundant to have a plugin on WordPress.org announce it's a WordPress plugin.....

    So what is in your pligin then? There's obviously something that's triggering that response. I guess you're going to be "doomed" to waiting for their reply. :)

    Please contact plugins [at] wordpress [dot] org about this. They're a small team with a large workload, so it may take a little while for someone to get back to you but they will do eventually.

    Yes, I am contacting with them right now. By the way, they send me one more rejection: now 'plugin' word is unacceptable in the title. Now I submitted the plugin 3rd time. I hope they can accept 'Directory', 'Classifieds' words and '&' symbol.

  12. Mihail? Perhaps a walk would help? I find walking is very useful. ;)

    As Esmi said the plugin teams is a small group of volunteers with a huge work load. They look at and review all plugins and emails that they get but you really have to be patient. If it's just a misunderstanding then I am sure it will be sorted out.

    If it's something else then I am also sure that will be explained too. Just please try and be patient.

    please, use this useful method yourself, right now stand up and walk, walk away.....

    My first question was not about plugin reviews team, reread my message before posting any stuff that everybody knows without you.
