When Will My Plugin Get Approved

  • Hi All,

    I have submitted my plugin but have not received any email….

    Plugin name is go-contact.

    How many days is required to review?

    eagerly waiting for the plugin to get approved… 🙂

    It depends upon how much time the plugin review team have and how many other plugins that have to review.

    It has been 2 days…. and have not got any reply so am little worried if they rejected it… as i have worked hard to create a plugin 🙂

    They will tell you if it’s rejected. In the mean time, everyone who reviews plugins is a volunteer with at least one other job — be patient.

    Try waiting a week or so. There are a lot of plugins and there’s only a very small team.

    And we are having a massive backlog.

    You’ll get an email one way or the other, but we have to ask you to be patient. Four of us, and a couple hundred plugins, where we have to download, review, and test them all? Takes a while.

    Is it true that you guys don’t have any automated process to review the plugins?
    We are spoiled with that the process often takes an hour or two. But now its about a week.

    Correct. Plugins are reviewed by human beings.

    Ok, I am impressed!
    Perhaps setting up some automated routines to search for common patterns, like adding jQuery, SimplePie, etc, etc?

    Parts of the system are almost certainly automated but there is still a human element involved – for good reason. 🙂

    Yep, thats great!

    No, actually nothing’s automated at this time :/

    We’re working on it, but unlike themes, Plugins are really ‘whatever someone imagines’ and the battle between innovations and standards is ongoing. So … nope. 🙂 Every plugin has every line of code read by a human, then (if it looks complex) we install it on a test install. Then we may ask someone else on the team for a second look…

    If we have a standard routine, I’d have it just auto-reject the hundreds of plugins without zips attached, or missing readmes. That would save me a couple hours a week.

    hi there….

    I have submitted a plugin named user-status-manager

    Kindly let me know if it is approved or not 🙂

    Thank You 🙂
