Clean WP Head


This is the long description. No limit, and you can use Markdown (as well as in the following sections).

For backwards compatibility, if this section is missing, the full length of the short description will be used, and
Markdown parsed.

A few notes about the sections above:

  • “Contributors” is a comma separated list of usernames
  • “Tags” is a comma separated list of tags that apply to the plugin
  • “Requires at least” is the lowest version that the plugin will work on
  • “Tested up to” is the highest version that you’ve successfully used to test the plugin. Note that it might work on
    higher versions… this is just the highest one you’ve verified.
  • Stable tag should indicate the Subversion “tag” of the latest stable version, or “trunk,” if you use /trunk/ for

    Note that the readme.txt of the stable tag is the one that is considered the defining one for the plugin, so
    if the /trunk/readme.txt file says that the stable tag is 4.3, then it is /tags/4.3/readme.txt that’ll be used
    for displaying information about the plugin. In this situation, the only thing considered from the trunk readme.txt
    is the stable tag pointer. Thus, if you develop in trunk, you can update the trunk readme.txt to reflect changes in
    your in-development version, without having that information incorrectly disclosed about the current stable version
    that lacks those changes — as long as the trunk’s readme.txt points to the correct stable tag.

    If no stable tag is provided, it is assumed that trunk is stable, but you should specify “trunk” if that’s where
    you put the stable version, in order to eliminate any doubt.

Arbitrary section

You may provide arbitrary sections, in the same format as the ones above. This may be of use for extremely complicated
plugins where more information needs to be conveyed that doesn’t fit into the categories of “description” or
“installation.” Arbitrary sections will be shown below the built-in sections outlined above.

A brief Markdown Example

Ordered list:

  1. Some feature
  2. Another feature
  3. Something else about the plugin

Unordered list:

  • something
  • something else
  • third thing

Here’s a link to WordPress and one to Markdown’s Syntax Documentation.
Titles are optional, naturally.

Markdown uses email style notation for blockquotes and I’ve been told:

Asterisks for emphasis. Double it up for strong.

<?php code(); // goes in backticks ?>


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.


  1. Upload plugin-name.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place <?php do_action('plugin_name_hook'); ?> in your templates
