Plugin Function Naming Standards for Repository

  1. samjco

    This is an idea to keep new plugins from conflicting with others by wordpress suggesting an available function prefix.

    Can WordPress keep a database of plugin code function "prefix" names (e.g: essb_function )?

    Any new plugin wishing to be added to the repository, user must first come to the WordPress Plugin Naming system and type in the name of the Plugin (e.g: BEST SLIDER WP). The system will then check to see if the prefix: "bswp" is available and if not will suggest a few prefixes (bswp2, bestswp, bswp0, etc).

    Once user select prefix, he must use with the plugin he is developing before uploading to the repository.

  2. No, sorry, that is not sustainable.

    We do try to catch people with obvious name issues at submission, but we do not enforce that far.
