Publishing a Plugin to the WordPress Plugin Directory

In 2001, a blog tool called HP0-J63 b2/cafelog was launched by Michel Valdrighi. Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little forked b2/cafelog and created WordPress in 2003. According to WordPress.org, “WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL and licensed 1Z0-899 under the GPL”. In 2004, plugins were introduced to extend WordPress’ core functionality. Here’s what the WordPress Plugin Directory looked like in November 2004:

Why Publish Your  WordPress Plugin?

  • The reasons people HP0-J64 publish plugins in the WordPress Plugin Directory are obviously varied. A couple of examples are explained below:
  • You see a need for functionality that doesn’t exist in a plugin in the directory
  • You see a market opportunity
  • You want to build a community around your plugin
  • Your favorite plugin doesn’t offer additional  HP2-B112 functionality that you want
  • You’re frustrated by how much some plugins charge for extra extensions and you think you could build those features at a lower cost
  • You want to simplify functionality in a way that doesn’t exist
  • You want to contribute to the WordPress Plugin Directory in order to be a part of the community

Our Reasoning

Having done loads of client work with WordPress, both ourselves and our clients were really unhappy with the complexity and cost of plugins in the eCommerce space. These two ISS-001 factors prevented some clients from exploring new opportunities with WordPress and taking steps forward to changing their lives. We wanted to simplify the whole eCommerce process as well as offer lower cost options so that anyone could partake. We also believed that we could do a better job with user on-boarding, innovating, creating new functionality and customer service requests. So, we decided to build our WPMerchant eCommerce plugin.

The WordPress Plugin Submission Process

Below, we break the process down into its most simple parts so that anyone can partake in this plugin creation adventure. We also present these steps in the order that  JN0-370 we wish we had taken when we decided to create our plugin!

1. Read the Guidelines.

Save yourself time and money by reading the detailed guidelines before creating and submitting your plugin. Make sure that you’re in compliance with all of these rules. Some of these rules include:

  • Making sure your plugin is GPL LOT-928 compatible
  • Requiring user consent before storing user information
  • Not spamming users
  • Not including obfuscated code
  • Not doing anything that is illegal or morally offensive
  • Not embedding external links on the public site

2.Validate the Readme file.

The ReadMe file is used to populate your plugin’s WordPress Plugin Directory page. If you really want to make your plugin page stand out, Jérémy Heleine wrote a great article on Creating  M2080-663 Awesome WordPress.org Pages for your Plugin. To give you a general overview, you should enter in your plugin name, contributors (WordPress author IDs), donate link, tags, the WordPress version that is required and the WordPress version the plugin has been tested on, license (it must be GPL) and a short description of your plugin. For the tags, we suggest choosing tags based on those listed in a competing plugin and popular tags that are relevant to your plugin. You can find tags from competing plugins by looking at their directory page and scrolling to the bottom of their page or by checking out their readme.txt file.

After adding that information, you should  MA0-100 add a main description, installation instructions, frequently asked questions and screenshots of your plugin. Make sure to include the screenshots, banner and icon in your plugin’s assets directory. The more screenshots the better. Once you’re happy with your readmefile, run it through the ReadMe Validator. Our readme.txt passed with flying colors (aren’t we special!):
