Sharpen Images allow you to make jpeg images on the website look sharper, making them look professional and stand out.

Sharpen Images is a WordPress plugin which automatically sharpens resized images for you. You just need to install the plugin and it will sharpen all the jpeg images on the website.</p>
This is the long description.  No limit, and you can use Markdown (as well as in the following sections).

This works fine all versions from 3.0.1 to 4.4.1 which is the latest version.

1. Upload the plugin files to the `/wp-content/plugins/sharpen-images` directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.

            "Markdown is what the parser uses to process much of the readme file"

Markdown uses email style notation for blockquotes and I've been told:
> Asterisks for *emphasis*. Double it up  for **strong**.

`<?php code(); // goes in backticks ?>`


Apart from the mistakes I had made, WordPress.org is having issues. Here is the email I officially got from them:

We are currently experiencing an issue with our systems where plugins cannot be processed properly due to some cache problems. We hope to have this resolved soon.


1 Answer 1

  1. Change the Stable tag value to your current plugin version 1.0
  2. Make a folder in tags with name 1.0.
  3. Copy your plugin files for version 1.0 in that folder with readme.txt and push it on SVN.
  4. Do the same whenever you release a new version.

Please note:
What you keep in your trunk is development version. And defining Stable tag in readme.txt mean current stable version which will be available for download from all tags.
