So, I got approval and the “go ahead” e-mail for my Mixed Tape plugin. I did the checkout using TortoiseSVN and it created the folders for the plugin. But, after adding files to the trunk, creating a tag folder and committing the files back up to svn, nothing. The files are up on svn, but the download page has yet to update. The page still shows my login as the author and doesn’t have any of the other information that my WP People plugin download page has. Very frustrating.
I know I’m not the only one who has gotten frustrated with creating plugins. Just check out The Agony and Ecstasy – Creating a WordPress Plugin. I even found a guy who posted a video series called How to Host a Plugin on WordPress in a four part series. The only thing I learned from the series is that it would be nice to have a new computer and maybe I would use a free open source IDE called Aptana.
I think I’ll let it set for a day and hopefully it will magically fix itself. Until then, I manually reloaded the plugin so that the demo page would still work.
