I've made nine revisions to my plugin and the image refuses to appear when the screenshots tab is clicked on. I placed it in the trunk initially, waited overnight, moved it to /assets, then resaved from png to jpg, read through most of the articles I could find ...... I'm stumped, Would someone else please have a look:


  • I see a screenshot-1.jpg in assets. Jan 22, 2016 at 4:00
  • And that's where it should be be but it refuses to show up on the screenshots tab

  • That is not what your question asked. You should edit it to be more specific about that problem. Jan 22, 2016 at 4:55

If I remember right you have to put your sreeshots in the trunk/tags folder. You have your screenshots only in the media folder, which is for the header image on wordpress.org.

For further reading:

  • Taken from the first link above: "Note that the screenshot is taken from the /assets directory or the directory that contains the stable readme.txt (tags or trunk). Screenshots in the /assets directory take precedence. For example, /assets/screenshot-1.png "would win over /tags/4.3/screenshot-1.png
