Developers are welcome and encouraged to make extensions for Easy Digital Downloads. Here are some guidelines to follow when creating an extension.
Naming 3rd-Party Extensions
3rd-party extensions should use the naming convention “Extension Name for Easy Digital Downloads”.
This is standard practice for other plugins that have 3rd-party add ons and helps differentiate between our official extensions and 3rd-party extensions.
Please do not use the naming convention “Easy Digital Downloads – Extension Name”, as it’s used for official Easy Digital Download extensions.
Easy Digital Downloads Branding
If you are referencing the Easy Digital Downloads brand, please use the proper assets (logos & color scheme).
Every plugin should follow the official WordPress.org repository guidelines; in regards to EDD extensions, make sure you read Plugins must respect trademarks, copyrights, and project names.
3rd-party extensions should place your EDD specific settings under Downloads → Settings → Extensions → Your Extension Name. To see an example of how to register your subsection and settings, you can reference this Gist:
