Developer information

You’ve got a cool new plugin and are hoping to give it some exposure. You’re in the right place. Just ask us to host it for you. You’ll be able to:

  • Следите за количеством людей, скачавших его.
  • Дайте людям возможность оставлять комментарии о вашем плагине.
  • Get your plugin rated against all the other cool WordPress plugins.
  • Give your plugin lots of exposure in this centralized repository.

Есть некоторые ограничения

  • Your plugin must be compatible with the GNU General Public License v2, or any later version. We strongly recommend using the same license as WordPress — “GPLv2 or later.”
  • The plugin must not do anything illegal or be morally offensive (that’s subjective, we know).
  • You have to actually use the Subversion repository we give you in order for your plugin to show up on this site. The WordPress Plugin Directory is a hosting site, not a listing site.
  • The plugin must not embed external links on the public site (like a “powered by” link) without explicitly asking the user’s permission.
  • Ваш плагин должен соблюдать наш список подробных рекомендаций, которые включают в себя не быть спамером и не вредить системам.

  4. Once approved, you’ll be given access to a Subversion Repository where you’ll store your plugin.
  5. Shortly after you upload your plugin (and a readme file!) to that repository, it will be automatically displayed in the plugins browser.
  6. Посмотрите ЧаВО для подробной информации.

Файлы Readme

To make your entry in the plugin browser most useful, each plugin should have a readme file named readme.txt that adheres to the WordPress plugin readme file standard. You can put your readme file through the readme validator to check it.
