Could you please supply (I'm stupid) step by step process of what I'm trying to do? Thanks!

I uploaded my first plugin using tortoiseSVN. With some difficulty, I got the files into the /tags dir but I need to update/overwrite.

I really only want to present version 1.0. I added *.01, etc versions because was I was not able to overwrite. I need to update readme and the .php file, and ideally, to version 1.0.

Thus, okay (but I don't know how) to delete the tag files from server, or worst case, make version 1.03, etc.

This is an instruction I wrote for myself:

  • Increment version nummber in plugin php file.

  • Increment the "Stable tag" in readme.txt file to to the same number.

  • Copy over all files from local plugin folder to the the D:\My_SVN_Folder\Plugin_Name\trunk

  • Right click trunk folder and select SVN Commit

  • Enter "Version X.X.X" and

  • Save files to /trunk repository

  • Write down revision number

  • Right click trunk folder and select TortoiseSVN > Branch/Tag

  • Change "To path" to /Plugin_Name/tags/X.X.X The same version as the "stable" tag of the readme.txt

  • In message field enter: "Tag X.X.X" or some other info

  • Select option: Specific version in repository

  • Make sure the revision number revision number matches the one from trunk commit.

  • Save

As you can see it is two step process:

  1. Copy updated files to trunk
  2. Copy newest trunk version to tags/version number
  • Worked! I had to update version to 1.0x as I could not get SVN to overwrite. But at least it's working... Thanks!
