[resolved] No version number appears for my plug-in in the directory (3 posts)

    I presume that this is something rather simple, but I've been playing with it a while now and I'm not getting far...

    My *new* plugin - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/realsatisfied-widget/ has no version number in the directory.

    My readme.txt uses Stable tag: trunk

    My plugin file currently has Version: 1.3.5

    yet no version appears in the directory or on the W.org page... and this means no updates are offered to users (right?)

    I'm sure I have something wrong, but just can't see what it is...

    I had been tagging releases, but stopped as I understood it was optional. I thought had followed Otto's steps here (http://make.wordpress.org/plugins/2012/06/09/the-plugins-directory-and-readme-txt-files/) but still nothing...

    Any assistance would be appreciated.



  2. Should be fixed now. Newlines matter, and your file had a mix of CRLF and LF style feeds.

    When using a text editor, use one that can save consistent line endings. It doesn't matter whether the file uses the PC format (CR+LF) or Unix format (LF alone), as long as it's consistent the whole way through. A mixed set will cause weirdness.

    In your specific case, the header had a different type of newline than the rest of the file did, causing the parser to not recognize the header as multiple lines, and thus not seeing the version.
