Most newer plugins in the plugins directory are not showing up in search results. We’re working on a solution, but it will probably be a few days before everything’s back to normal.

Lame, we know. Apologies for the hassle.

I upgraded the WP.org Plugins Directory to bbPress trunk/ today. I’m sure there’s still glitches to work out. In particular, search may be a little out of date until I get the new sphinx index set up correctly.

There was a bug in the process that generated plugin screenshots in the WordPress.org Plugins Directory.

The bug has been fixed, and I’m currently running a brute force script to update all plugins. The script is not very efficient and will take a couple days to finish.

In preparation for 3.0, themes should wrap calls to next_post_link() and previous_post_link() in is_singular() conditionals if those functions are being used on index.php/archive views.

See #10867 .

Plugins can now include videos in their readme.txt files

The plugins directory now supports videos in readme.txt files. YouTube, Vimeo, and WordPress.com VideoPress videos are supported.

Videos are included using one of two formats.

Shortcode: YouTube, Vimeo, WordPress.com VideoPress

Include a normal looking shortcode anywhere in the readme.txt file.

For YouTube and Vimeo, the shortcode has one unnamed parameter: the video’s URL.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7EiKx_WSesk]
[vimeo http://vimeo.com/173714]

For WordPress.com VideoPress videos, the shortcode has one unnamed parameter: the video’s ID. The shortcode can be copied from the video’s embed menu.

[wpvideo OO4thna8]

To prevent shortcodes from being parsed, enclose the shortcode in backticks.

`[wpvideo OO4thna8]`

Autolink: YouTube, Vimeo

Include a YouTube or Vimeo URL by itself on its own line in the readme.txt file.

http://vimeo.com/173714

Example

https://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/mdawaffe-test/trunk/readme.txt
https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mdawaffe-test/

The Validator shows the videos too.

NB: Directly including object/embed HTML into the readme.txt file is not supported; the goal of the readme.txt file is to be human readable.

PS: Videos are not currently supported as replacements for screenshot images in the screenshots section. It’s silly that the Plugins Directory doesn’t yet support that 🙂 It’s on the todo.

I still need to Fix “You’re using BetaPress TODO”. Will probably have to update the update API.
