I have a plugin that I want to submit to Wordpress.org

I have a plugin that I want to submit to Wordpress.org and its a fork. What exactly do I need to do to as far as giving credit to the original author?

    Hello @Site Division

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    Did you fork from another plugin? Was there any license?

    You can add that author as contributor in the readme file, and keep his license in there (if any).

    Also, you can credit to the author in directly to the readme file as well.

    Hope it helps :slight_smile: Please feel free to ask more question if you have any.

    Cheers
    Ash

    Great :slight_smile:

    So, you have added new features and changes a lot I think.

    In that case, I think you can simple submit the plugin as your own plugin, but to make it ethical you can add a line in readme file saying that the plugin is forked from XXX plugin etc :slight_smile:

    Cheers
