    I got approved for the SVN, however this is the first time I have used SVN so I don't know how to upload the files. I have gone through the FAQs, but it didn't help.

    So.. How do I upload my plugin?

    You need to use a SVN client such as TortiseSVN

    No he doesn't. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/svn/ tells you step by step the commands you can use.

    True http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/svn/ tells you how to do it, but it doesn't tell you what to do it with. I use PhotoShop and notepad and dreamweaver each and every day and typing command line code into any of them isn't going to get me very far.

    I knew nothing about SVN and command line code scares the shit out of me. I definitely wasn't sure what app I'd have to write all that command line stuff into. Would it just be the Windows Command Prompt box? Who knows - I never found out.

    I figured for every app reliant on command line input, there's a free GUI that makes it easy for code-ignorant folk like me to get it to work, so after a bit of a google I found RapidSVN - http://rapidsvn.tigris.org/, which I worked out how to use in a fraction of the time it would have taken to type half of those command lines, and I soon had my plugin uploaded.

    The basics of RapidSVN, to get you going are...

    • install it
    • right click on 'Bookmarks'
    • click 'Add Existing Repository'
    • paste in the URL sent to you by WordPress for your plugins SVN location
    • The above step will have added a new Bookmark
    • Right click on the new bookmark and choose 'Checkout New Working Copy'. Another new bookmark will be added, for the local version
    • Once it's checked out to wherever you choose locally just add your files to it, edit them, whatever's needed
    • Once you're done adding/editing stuff to your local version, right click that version (not the live svn one) in your bookmarks and choose 'Commit'
    • You're done, you files are now in WordPress's SVN repository

    Hope that helps someone!

    I'll third that - and add that I'm familiar with the command line, but the whole "what to do it with" was not clear in the "about". Thanks monkeyfight.
