Today, August 3rd, 2013, marks the grand opening of the brand new Movable Type Plugins and Themes Directory. The directory will initially run as a beta version alongside the beta version of Movable Type 6, with an official release date coinciding with the Movable Type 6 official release in October, 2013.
One of the most exciting features of the new plugins and themes directory is the ability to link to information registered on Github, which will help make publishing plugins and themes to the directory easier than ever. Simply provide the Github plugin or theme repository URL and all the necessary information will be automatically retrieved and published to the directory. Plugins and themes version information and descriptions will also automatically update whenever the Github settings file is updated.
* It will still be possible to publish plugins or themes that have not been previously registered on Github.
We hope that developers will take this opportunity to register with the new directory and share their plugins and themes with the Movable Type community. As always, we look forward to your feedback.
Please keep in mind the beta testing environment is not free of bugs and malfunctions during use may occur.
(User registration, as well as plugin and theme publication, requires administrative approval and consequently may take up to a few days to complete. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.)
