Hello Dolly
FYI: readme.txt file - missing (2 posts)

    I rated this plugin 5 stars and I recorded that the plugin works with the installed version of WordPress I'm using.

    The readme.txt file, associated with this plugin, is completely missing.

    Who am I to question Matt?

    Well, There is quite a lot of literature in the codex areas, discussing the importance of the readme.txt file. So, I'm wondering why there isn't any type of procedure in place to make sure the readme.txt file is present and kept up to date. There are thousands of WordPress plugins available in the plugin directory, yet only a limited few have an up do date readme.txt file.

    If you read my WordPress Plugins and the readme.txt File article, you'll see what I'm talking about.

    The readme.txt file still missing with the latest version of WordPress.

    This plugin continues to be packaged with the WordPress installations, but doesn't follow WordPress' own suggestions to have a readme.txt file with the plugin.

    Where is the following located, if not in the readme.txt file?

    Requires at least: ?.?
    Tested up to: ?.?
    Stable tag: ?.?
