#4293 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Plugin Upload Handler improvements

Reported by: ipstenu's profile Ipstenu Owned by: sergeybiryukov's profile SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Plugin Directory Keywords:


Based on the last 6 months of plugin submissions, we need to improve the language used.

  • Many translation changes to improve explanations as to why resubmitting plugins isn't needed.
  • Updating links to the handbook vs the codex.
  • Explain what a URI is and that they need to be UNIQUE
  • Explain you don't need both a plugin URI and an author URI
  • Explain we're missing the README file.
  • Warn that plugin slugs are subject to change (again)
  • Rephrasing parts of the submission email to be more clear about where they are in the process.

Also there's a new feature to check if your plugin slug STARTS with a probably bad term. This has been tested locally but really could use more eyes.
