Changing the SVN folder name for a Plugin (7 posts)

    Hi,

    I recently uploaded a plugin, SimpleKarma, to the WP plugin directory. Unfortunatly I did not know that the Title I specified in the registration form was going to be used as the folder name for the plugin. The extracted folder should be called "simple-karma" but it is currently called "simplekarma-content-ratings", which will not work if dropped into the WP plugins folder.

    Is there a way to change the name of the folder in SVN so that the plugin works "out of the box" when downloaded?

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    I'm having a similar problem with renaming my plugin svn name. Did you solve the problem?

    Thanks

    I already sent the Bug Report Message two days ago and I got no answer. Do you?

    I also want to change my plugin project name in SVN so that the base folder extracted from the zip file is shorter and more meaningful. Is there any way to do this, or should I just submit the same plugin with a different name?
