#3305 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Plugin Directory: Change where plugin display name is 'pulled'

Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


When a plugin is closed, we should change pulling the display name from the readme to the header_name custom field. This will prevent abuse later on.

To clarify, header_name is the Plugin Name: Blah header from the plugins main file, it's just as open to abuse as readme changes are.
