[resolved] Changing a plugin´s author (5 posts)

    Hi folks,

    I´ve found a new leader for the plugin "I am reading" who will develop it in the future and I´d really like to change the plugin´s author to the new one so that I am not the one listet on wordpress.org/extend/ anymore.

    The new leader´s username is 'mifupa' who is added as a committer now.

    Is there a chance of getting this done ?

    Kind regards from Germany,
    Dominik

    I'm guessing, but isn't that the Author: line at the top of your plugin's php file?

    May be it´s just that easy.

    I think it is the line "Contributors" in the readme.txt ´cause there´s the username which is shown as the plugin´s author. Don´t know why I didn´t think of this ^^

    Will try it later.

    Thx,
    Dominik

    We got it.

    It was really just that easy. We had to change the readme file. :-)

    Thx for your response,
    Dominik
