I am trying to customise a plugin to add some functionality that is not part of the original.
To do this I have copied all the files into a new folder, and renamed all the function prefixes, changed the header of the main php file.
I have tried uploading the files straight to the server for activation but it was not picked up by WP so I zipped all the files to install them "properly" and it came up with the following output:
Unpacking the package…
Installing the plugin…
The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found.
Plugin install failed.
Thinking that this may be a header problem I double checked my header but it all appeared to be correct, to my eyes at least.
/* Plugin Name: MC Investment Custom Plugin URI: http://www.spectra-info.com/wp/plugins (Original) Description: Customised plugin based on the MC Investment Plugin. Version: 1.0 Author: Edited by Joshua Ward Original by Spectrain Author URI: http://www.spectra-info.com (Original) */
But alas, no success. The .zip file has the plugin file in it's 'root' directory so I am fairly confident that is not the problem.
Is there anything wrong with the plugin header that I can't see? I have tried it without the
(Original) in the URI lines thinking that was what has mucked it but it appears not.
EDIT: Please stop replacing Customise with Customize. Everybody who types English who is not American, ie me, spell it the British (read: proper) way.
