I just added a plugin on WP repository but it seems like my readme.txt wasn't parsed correctly. I even ran it through the validator but on the plugin page it shows Description text under all tabs - Installation, Changelog, FAQ

Plugin - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/facebook-like-thumbnail/ Readme.txt - http://plugins.svn.wordpress.org/facebook-like-thumbnail/tags/0.1/readme.txt

So did I do something wrong? Or readme file parser is to blame?


You can add a short piece of text above the description that will be the "short description". You may need a blank line above and below.

If it is not there, then the wp parser uses the first x characters of the description

like this
