After creating proper documentation for your creation, the next step toward its publication on the official plugin repository is to apply for hosting. This is simply done by submitting a request form in the
Developer Center section on http://wordpress.org.
This recipe shows how to apply for plugin hosting and offers tips to follow for quick acceptance.
- Create a zip archive containing your entire plugin directory, including the
readme.txtfile created in the previous recipe.
- Log into the https://wordpress.org website using the form at the top of the plugin submission page with your existing credentials or create a new account if you don't currently have one.
- Point your web browser to the plugin hosting request form page, which is available at https://wordpress.org/plugins/developers/add/.
- Select your ZIP file and upload it to the site.
