When you submit a plugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party, the plugin slug (i.e. the URL A specific web address of a website or web page on the Internet, such as a website’s URL www.wordpress.org) is determined from your plugin’s display name, as set in the main plugin file. The slug can be changed while a plugin is in review but we cannot change it once your plugin is approved.
That’s why, when you submit a plugin, we send you an automatic email telling you what your slug is, and asking you to please reply immediately if that slug is wrong. We also show you what the slug will be on the post-submission page.
If you fail to tell us before we approve your plugin, you’re going to be stuck with the name you got, unless there’s an extenuating circumstance (like a legal issue, or a typo). We do not accept ‘resubmissions’ to fix the name, as we’re making every reasonable effort to get the information out there for you to act on.
Please. Make sure you read the emails. Make sure you check the slug after you submit. Tell us right away when you spot something wrong. And above all? Remember you have full control of your slug in your own submission 🙂
