How do you publish / update a Plugin to the WordPress.org directory?

Home Knowledgebase Website Development WordPress Plugin Development How do you publish / update a Plugin to the WordPress.org directory?

This article explains how we publish or update our own Plugins that are available on WordPress.org.

 

Prerequisites

 

Our sister company, WPPluginCo.com develops WordPress Plugins that our team here uses. Some of these Plugins are free and available on WordPress.org. So the question our staff wonder is how do we publish new ones or update existing ones.

 

Updating

What username and password do I use to login to the company WordPress.org account? And to publish the Plugin to the repository?

Login to WordPress.org with our “wppluginco” username and respective password (which should be automatically populated via LastPass, it’s located in the Shared-Department of Operations folder).

 

What is the repository URL to checkout / clone the Plugin to my local machine?

Before you can publish the changes, you’ll need to use SVN to checkout the current version of the Plugin from WordPress.org: https://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/your-plugin-name my-local-dir

To publish your changed back to the repository follow the aforementioned instructions and check-in the code using this URL format: my-local-dir/$ svn cp https://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/your-plugin-name/trunk https://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/your-plugin-name/tags/2.0

 

Publishing a New Plugin

For detailed instructions on how to do this please refer to the official documentation provided by WordPress.org
