Choose a good name for your plugin
On WordPress Stack Exchange we follow a basic rule when we edit titles: Remove redundancy, be specific. Useless words are help, problem, issue and WordPress. It is a website about WordPress problems after all, we help each other. We know that already, no need to put that into the title.
Unfortunately, not all questions are edited, so these words aren’t banned completely.
I wish the plugin repository on wordpress.org had a similar rule. Looking at the list of all plugins should tell you why: There are hundreds of plugins with wp or wordpress in their names, mostly at the beginning. And many other plugins end their name with plugin.
Please, if you develop a plugin, don’t do that.
- It is redundant. When your users download a WordPress plugin they don’t need to be reminded about that fact by your plugin name.
- It smells like spam, like a very poor attempt to look official. But no, you made that plugin, not WordPress.org.
- It is very annoying to scroll through a list of locally installed plugins when so many directories start with the same letters.
Find a good name, easy to read, to spell and to remember. Thank you.
