    I have releaaed a plugin of mine into the plugin directory by using SVN which shows up fine here: http://dev.wp-plugins.org/browser/calendar

    Despite following the guidelines for the readme.txt however the plugin does not show up on the WordPress.org plugin directory which was the whole reason I started placing it in the SVN in the first place.

    Am I doing something wrong with the way I have placed it in SVN, if so what and how do I get it to display in the directory?

    Thanks in advance for the pointers

  • Further to my last post I also cannot seem to edit the Wiki (adding my plugin to this page: http://dev.wp-plugins.org/wiki/PluginDirectory ).

    Has my account become screwed up somehow?

    No worries, I solved it.

    You cannot be listed in the plugins directory unless you have added a correct header comment to the main php file in the trunk, even if this isn’t actually the file that displays the data in the plugins page of WordPress.

    This isn’t something that is all that well documented so I hope this helps someone else.

    As for editing the Wiki, I’m still kind of stuck on that one, although if my plugin is showing up on wordpress.org then I’m not so bothered about editing the page I linked to last time.

    I have checked in one tagged version, and a trunk into my svn plugin dir without errors. I don’t see my plugin showing up anywhere, not wordpress.org or wp-plugins.org. I have a valid header in the plugin PHP, and a validly formatted readme.txt in both the trunk and the tagged version. What gives? Am I supposed to see an empty dir, even, under http://dev.wp-plugins.org/browser ? Because my plugin is not even there. “catholic-reference-extension-for-wordpress” is the plugin name/dir.
