Support » Everything else WordPress » New plugin request approved – but no "get started" email

    So my first plugin idea says it’s been approved on 10/26/2011. However, I haven’t received an email confirmation from WP folks about getting started. By “says it’s been approved” I mean that the plugin page says “approved”. See the link – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/byob-thesis-simple-header-widgets/

    Am I right in expecting that email? Can I request another if that one got lost?

    Any suggestions?

    It’s not approved, it’s just you’re the only one who can see it. Email plugins@wordpress.com if you need to, but it can take a couple weeks to get a new plugin approvd. Until you get the email it’s not done.

    Thanks for that. I appreciate it.

    I am also waiting for my plugin to be approved. My plugin will be called GuidePress.

    The thing that worries me a little is that I didn’t get any kind of auto-confim email saying that my submission has been logged and awaiting approval. I checked my spam folder but didn’t find anything.

    I guess I am just a little impatient.

    There isn’t an auto-confirm.

    They have to be manually reviewed and, y’know, it’s the weekend. I see it in the queue (though I can’t approve them myself) so it WILL be picked up 🙂

    Thank you for your reply Ipstenu. That’s fine, as long as it’s in a queue somewhere then I’m happy.

    One more query, I am trying to test my banner image using the instructions I found here.

    I logged into wordpress.org and tried the following url to test my banner:


    wordpress.org/extend/plugins/guidepress/?banner_url=http://i.imgur.com/uXlle.png

    However it doesn’t seem to work. Is it because this will only work after the plugin gets approved?

    You can’t upload anything until your site’s approved, so … you can’t upload a banner till that happens. The banner will go into your assets folder.

    My plugin has been approved and it’s working after following your advice :o)

    Many thanks
