Frequently Asked Questions

How long will the review process take?

This is in the Developer FAQ. It takes anywhere between 1 and 10 days. We attempt to review all plugins within 5 business days of submission, but the process takes as long as it takes, depending on the complexity of your plugin.

How can I expedite my plugin review?

Your plugin review cannot be prioritized over others, to help us approve your plugin sooner, please ensure that you have read the Security chapter of the Plugin Handbook.

Our three most common reasons for not approving a plugin are:

If the code in your plugin falls into one of the above categories, your plugin will not be approved. The plugin review team will refer you back to these Handbook pages, adding further delay to the review process.

What will my plugin URL be?

Your plugin’s URL will be populated based on the value of Plugin Name in your main plugin file (the one with the plugin headers). If you set yours as Plugin Name: Boaty McBoatface then your URL will be https://wordpress.org/plugins/boaty-mcboatface and your slug will be boaty-mcboatface for example. If there is an existing plugin with your name, then you will be boaty-mcboatface-2 and so on. It behaves exactly like WordPress post names.

Once your plugin is approved, it cannot be renamed.

I made a mistake in my plugin name. Should I update it?

It depends on what you want to change. If you want to change the plugin display name you can update that by updating your plugin files in this page. If what you want to change is the permalink / slug of your plugin, you can do that ONCE before we begin with the review (if that’s available you’ll see a link to change it on this page). If this is not possible, you will need to contact us at plugins@wordpress.org, we can change it as long as the plugin has not yet been approved.

Why can’t I submit a plugin with certain display names?

Certain plugin names are prohibited due to trademark abuse. Similarly, we prevent their use in plugin slugs entirely for your protection.
