  • Resolved andy_moyle


    Today the name of my plugin has changed on the wordpress site and I don’t know why!

    Yesterday it was called “church_directory” and today it is “Logout Password Protected Posts”

    My plugin uses functionality from that other plugin with credit.
    I can’t work out why, the name on the site has changed…
    Anyone help please?

    Check out the Plugin Home page link. Is that the “other plugin”? Did you update the plugin a few days ago? Could you have made a mistake in the header block that includes the plugin’s name?

    Have checked all that and redone svn and the title is still wrong!

    Thanks to another plugin developer, I’ve located 2 areas where your plugin name appears to be missing in your svn:

    1. Your readme file. As I understand it === Plugin Name === should be replaced with something like === Church Directory ===

    2. Your main plugin file (index.php). According to this Codex sub-section, you need:

    Plugin Name: Name Of The Plugin
    Plugin URI: http://URI_Of_Page_Describing_Plugin_and_Updates

    at the top of the file. From what I can see, your index.php doesn’t include this info.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for that. I had missed the readme.txt title! And after using the readme.txt validator too 😉

    I’d also updated my install of Notepad++ which was doing weird things with linefeeds, further compounding the issue.

    A new freebie IDE and everything is fixed.

    Thank you kindly for your help
