Specify Root Plugin Folder In Official WordPress Plugins Repository

  1. Lester Chan


    Some of us the older plugin authors are facing problem/hassle of restructuring the our plugin structure as our plugin name need not necessary follow the official plugin name folder naming convention.

    And when user download the file from the repository, it will be the <official plugin name>\<plugin name>\<plugin>.php

    If we can specify in the readme.txt like where the root of the plugin begins, older plugin authors can specify <plugin name> so then user extract the zip, there is only 1 level deep.

    Something like Root: /<plugin name> would be good

  2. Is this still an issue as of 2.x?
