Last Updated is displaying wrong

  • Paul G.


    Hi Guys,

    I’ve updated the source of my plugin

    and it’s not showing as an update for any site that have the plugin installed.

    before today, the version was 2.0.2.

    I tried updating to 2.0.2a, and when look in the update plugins tool on the WP dashboard, it states: “Newer Version (2.0.2) Installed”.

    Something is wrong. So I updated it again to 2.0.2b. Still the same problem.

    Any ideas?

    worked it out.

    For some reason, the repository ignores the time/date at which something is released, and relies solely on version “numbers”.

    Therefore, 2.0.2 is “newer” than 2.0.2a.

    This makes little sense to me and I would have assumed it’d be somehow tied to the date/time it was tagged.

    It could equally be a misunderstanding on my part.

    So I’ve just changed how I do version numbering.
