plugins.svn.wordpress.org update script does not update date (54 posts)

    Okay, first, stop changing things. Too many changes will only make it confusing. Make your changes in bulk, then check them all in at once.

    Secondly, changes don't take effect instantly. It may take several hours for a change to show up.

    Third, if you're using tagged versions, then the only thing read from the trunk will be the "Stable Tag". Everything else comes from the tag directory. So changing the readme.txt in trunk won't have any effect at all unless you change the tag.

    Finally, all changes matter. There's no difference between PHP and TXT and anything else. So you can just stop trying to figure it out.

    People continually doing crazy stuff like this is what causes it to get horked up in the first place. STOP IT. If you think it's behaving weird, then stop screwing with it. Email me which plugin you think is having the problem, and then I will investigate and either fix the problem or tell you what you did wrong.

    Either way, you cannot debug the thing. Stop trying.

    No problem Otto. I was done experimenting anyway. ;) Everything is all good for me now. I just wanted to pass on what worked for me. Like I said in my disclaimer - it could all just be coincidental or something you corrected on the back end while I was experimenting. :)
    Thanks,

    I released a new version of BPS and the Last Updated Date did not update nor did my readme.txt file have the latest updated content. So I just added 1 asterisk to the end of the == Changelog == section for = .46.1 = of my readme.txt file for the new tagged version ONLY and did another commit. The Last Updated Date updated almost instantly. I did not update the readme.txt file for the Trunk and did nothing else, but that one simple thing. Thanks.

    I'm seeing similar behavior (last updated date doesn't update) on my plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-thumbnail-editor/

    Is this issue still being researched or is it closed?

    Nevermind, it appears to have worked after all.

    Sorry to tag you again Otto, I'm sure you're a busy person.

    My plugin, wpStoreCart:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpstorecart/

    is not updating the "Last Updated" time since 2011-2-1, although I've released 4 updates since then. I know the "Last Updated" is just for show, but as others have stated, it makes it look like the plugin is not being maintained, which is very harmful in attracting new downloads, and it also keeps us off the "Recently Updated" list, which is also very harmful in attracting new downloads.

    I know how it goes through, trying to tie in different interfaces together and having some obscure user issue pop up, with subsequent support issues arising. Still, I would desperately love some help in this matter, to know if there's something on my end I am doing wrong, or if there's anything I can do.

    Is this guy's theory on this issue correct:
    http://webtide.wordpress.com/2011/04/18/wordpress-plugin-svn-tip-how-to-resolve-the-last-updated-issue/

    I'm thinking it isn't because I have always done the SVN commits the exact way he describes.

    Anyway, all help in this matter is greatly appreciated.

    Hi,

    Same problem for http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-e-commerce-featured-product/.

    I'm using tagging to indicate the stable version.

    Please let me know if I'm doing something wrong.

    Thanks.

    Otto, readme.txt and the plugin's main file both reflect 1.3.13, but the directory shows 1.3.11. It has been 21 hours since I updated / tagged.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi,
    same problem for
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/send-e-mail/stats/

    I'm using tagging to indicate the stable version.

    The download button is updated but label "Last Updated:" report a very old date: "2009-12-21".

    Please can check this issue and update the "Last Updated" correctly ?

    Thanks in advance,
    Paolo

    "Last Updated" just has been right.
    I don't know why, I just did as below.

    1. Using TortoiseSVN, I executed "SVN Commit" only new readme.txt(tagged trunk) and excuted Branch/tag.
    (I usually use readme.txt tagged version.)

    Result: "Last Updated" not changed

    2. I executed "SVN Commit" only new readme.txt(tagged version) and excuted Branch/tag again.

    Result: "Last Updated" changed

    My plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ultimate-category-excluder/ also still has a February 2011 date, despite two new versions that have been released since then.

    Would be great to get a Last Update change for our plugin also,
    wordpress.org/extend/plugins/embedly/

    Otto , not sure if you are still doing this? Do you have an email we can send to?

    Another plugin that has the Last Updated date not updated:

    Looks like our plugin has the correct last-update date, now. If an Admin didn't change this, it may have been a few of the changes made to the header of the php file, specifically the description and plugin uri. -http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/embedly/

    I was facing the same problem until I changed my branch readme.txt from Stable tag: 1.6 to Stable tag: trunk.
    Then in your trunk readme.txt put Stable tag: 1.6.
