Change Plugin Filename (4 posts)

  1. When I first released my plugin I used the following naming convection

    name-of-plugin/plugin.php

    I've since realized this is bad form and would like to rename it to

    name-of-plugin/name-of-plugin.php

    but this seams to break automatic updates. Any suggestion on how to go about doing this?

  2. It's not bad form. I mean, it's not great, but it's not going to hurt things.

  3. OK, bad might have been too strong. However I would still like to change it to something more appropriate. Any thoughts on how to get it to rename correctly.

  4. Which plugin?

    And what do you mean it 'breaks' automatic updates?
