WordPress Plugins on Addons Page

I plan to develop a plugin for WordPress that will implement some integration with Vanilla. Is it okay to release a WordPress plugin on the Vanilla Addons page? It's not a plugin meant to be uploaded to the Vanilla plugins folder. It's meant to be uploaded to the WordPress plugins folder. It seems that it would be better to link people to the addons page on this website instead of the WordPress site because it would be more noticeable and relates exclusively to implementing some Vanilla features for WordPress.

    I would assume not. The expectation is that the addons will be used on Vanilla. I know you can't even upload an addon here unless it has an about.php and/or default.php, which might conflict with the WP plugin anyhow.

    I would upload to wordpress and make a discussion here linking to it.

  • I'll put it on the WordPress website instead and link to it as you suggested. I might have read somewhere that addons require about.php and default.php as well, but forgot about it. Thank you for your answer.

    a 3 rd option:

    instead of default.php or about.php,
    it can also have a plugin array in e.g. class.yourplugin.php. and have neither a default.php nor an about.php.

    @Shadowdare saw your pm - I'm still digesting it, it looks very interesting.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Thanks for mentioning class.yourplugin.php. That is also a possibility. :D
