After submitting some of my plugins i will explain you the submitting process of a plugin on our beloved plateform WordPress.org !
First of all you will need to create an account by following this register link.
The plugin must respect some rules on it structure, for this i have made an empty plugin on my github : wordpress-plugin-minimal .
In few words :
- You must complete the index.php with your infos
- You must have an readme.txt file with the same infos
When your satisfied with you plugin functionality you can submit it to WordPress by following this link.
You will have to give the plugin name, the description and an online link where WordPress’s reviewers can download you plugin in a zip file.
Be warned ! The plugin name cannot have the word “wordpress” or any offending word !!!
Once the plugin is submit you need to wait an email from the team after they reviewed your code to check compliance to them rules and some security checks.
The email will tell you if your plugin is accepted, if it’s the case they will open a svn repository to you with your WordPress.org credentials. You will find a nice guide they write to use this repository.
If you want to add screenshot you will have to push the files in the asset folder.
That’s it ! You are now a plugin author, and your plugin will be in the official WordPress repository and shown in the plugin search in backoffice.
