Support » Plugin: Download Plugins and Themes from Dashboard » Zipped files aren’t within a folder

  • Resolved silvadiego705


    I’ve been using your plugin for a long time and it was working very nicely. I assume since the last release the zipped files aren’t inside a folder anymore.

    For example, if I download the Disable Emojis plugin from, then the file format within the zip file is like:

      Length      Date    Time    Name
    ---------  ---------- -----   ----
            0  2017-05-30 22:55   disable-emojis/
         2646  2016-12-19 11:58   disable-emojis/disable-emojis.php
        15410  2016-12-19 11:58   disable-emojis/license.txt
         1412  2017-05-30 22:55   disable-emojis/readme.txt
    ---------                     -------
        19468                     4 files

    If I download the plugin from a wordpress installation, then the file structure looks as follows:

      Length      Date    Time    Name
    ---------  ---------- -----   ----
         2646  2016-12-19 11:58   disable-emojis.php
        15410  2016-12-19 11:58   license.txt
         1412  2017-05-30 22:55   readme.txt
    ---------                     -------
        19468                     3 files

    I have the same behavior on two different servers.

    Not sure if it was different in previous plugin versions, but as you pointed this out – I’ve just released new plugin version 1.2.0. Now main plugin/theme directory is included in ZIP, just as you described (i.e. as when downloading from I’ve also added options to change this behaviour, as well as options to append plugin/theme version number to ZIP filename. Options are in “Settings > Download Plugins and Themes”.

    Please let me know if it works as expected now. And if you like the plugin, please leave us a rating.

    Best regards,
