How to contribute to a plugin? (4 posts)

    Total newbie question but I'm coming from Drupal so I'd appreciate any advice. How do WP users contribute code improvements to a plugin? Is there a VCS that I can get the latest code, modify and submit a patch back for review by the maintainer? It doesn't appear at first glance that this is provided by WP.org


    BTW: I'm digging the WP thing :)

    Someone else may be able to give you a more direct answer, but I just wanted to point you to the plug-in developers info in case you hadn't already seen it. I'm not sure others' plug-in code is directly available to everyone else, but there's nothing stopping you from contacting the developer directly. Hopefully someone else more versed in the plug-in process can chime in here to confirm.

    Awesome! Thanks. So I should be able to use SVN to get/update/submit changes.

    You can get SVN in order to download the latest source, make changes locally and create a .diff file. You can then use the Plugin trac in order to submit tickets, changes, etc. that the developer could use in their releases.
