Adding plugin to http://svn.wp-plugins.org (8 posts)

    This is probably a really stupid question, but I've been searching and reading and can't find an answer.
    I made a plugin and received that email confirming the plugin approval. I see my plugin folder is on the Subversion directory (http://svn.wp-plugins.org/bob-marley-quotes/), but I have no idea how to upload my files to that directory.
    I've gone to the links provided in the email:
    Using Subversion with the WordPress Plugins Directory

    FAQ about the WordPress Plugins Directory

    WordPress Plugins Directory readme.txt standard

    readme.txt validator:

    ...but I'm lost. I don't see how to actually upload. No ftp info, etc.
    Am I missing something really simple?
    Any help would be very cool.

    You use an svn client as documented in http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/svn/

    On OSX you can download one here: http://homepage.mac.com/martinott/ Called My Subversion-1.4.4 Package.

    Once installed open up terminal and follow the wordpress instructions in the above documentation.

    As I don't use windows I cant help out with an svn client for that platform but im sure google will be able to give you a hand.

    Hehehe....cool. Many thx Carbon.
    I just looked over that /about/svn/ page again and still don't see where it says anything about getting a client, but I think I'm all good now.

    I got SmartSVN and it's got a wizard which makes using pretty easy.

    I uploaded the .php and readme.txt to the trunk/ route so I guess that's it.


    Thanks again :)

  4. I uploaded the .php and readme.txt to the trunk/ route so I guess that's it.

    Not so much. Really, read this whole thing. A plugin has to be tagged to appear properly, methinks:

    Try edit the line Plugin URI in the PHP file.

  7. zonk: Contact them through here: http://wordpress.org/report-bugs/

    They can tell you how to change your plugin or your readme file to change that link's URI.
