    I’ve tried to install the latest version of the plugin, but I noticed that the trunk folder is empty. Is there any reason for that?

    Currently if you try to download the latest version of the plugin using the following link: https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/the-events-calendar.zip
    you get a folder containing only the readme.

    It will be great if you can sync your thunk folder with the latest tag folder and update that folder in the future.

  • Hey there @sstoqnov!

    Thanks for reaching out.

    That’s strange, that readme is even for the latest version. Here’s a working link to the current version → https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/the-events-calendar.4.6.23.zip

    Though I suggest using https://wordpress.org/plugins/the-events-calendar/ in the future.

    I’ll point this out to the team though!

    Take care,
    Ed ✌️

    Hey Ed

    Thanks for your comment.

    I know how to download the latest version, even when the trunk is empty.
    The issue is that I have to check every time, what’s the latest version of the plugin and to use different link. For example, if I have an app that automatically install your plugin I could use the following link:
    https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/the-events-calendar.4.6.23.zip

    But when you release a new version, 4.6.24 for example, I have to change that link. And I have to do that every time you release a new version, and this is not developer friendly.

    If you keep the latest version of the plugin in the trunk folder, I can use the following link: https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/the-events-calendar.zip, which will always give me the latest version.

    From svn docs:

    The trunk is the main line of development in a SVN repository.

    Don’t get me wrong, this plugin is great, but it will be really nice if I can use a single link to download the latest version every time. And to achieve that, you should keep the latest version in trunk folder, like almost every plugin in the repo.

    Cheers,
    Stanimir

    Gotcha! I’ve made a note to the team.

    Take care,

    Hey folks. Its not solved because the trunk is still empty. We are waiting for your developers to update the trunk folder 🙂

    Hey @sstoqnov,

    Thanks for your feedback! We are deliberately adding just the readme.txt on trunk, but we do have plans to change this in the near future to follow the subversion convention as you mentioned.

    You will be notified as soon as we do this change. Let us know if you have any other questions in the meantime!

    Thanks,

    Patricia
