I Make Plugins

This plugin is for WordPress plugin authors, not users. It showcases your plugins on your WordPress blog, using the WordPress.org plugin repository as a source. It generates both a directory listing page, and the content of each plugin’s page. All you have to provide is the title; the rest comes from the repository. You get to control the markup of each type of page using intuitive WordPress shortcodes.

FAQ

Q. Why isn’t my plugin pulling information from the repository?
A. The default is that its page “slug” must match the “slug” of the plugin in the repository. But if you want the slug to be something else, you can edit the placeholder page for that plugin and enter in a custom plugin slug in the “Plugin slug” meta box.

Q. I’ve updated my plugin’s `readme.txt` file. Why aren’t the changes showing?
A. Be patient. The API responses are updated once an hour.

Q. How do I show something if a particular plugin field is *not* available?
A. Use: [if_not_{shortcode}] ... [/if_not_{shortcode}]
