How do I list my extension in the extensions site?

Why was my extension rejected from being listed?

Some of the common reasons extensions are rejected are because of:

  • logo violations
  • extension cannot be downloaded or found on the site
  • extension does not install

How can I help the extension submission process?

There are several ways you can help the extension submission process go faster and smoother. As you may know, the Joomla! Extension Directory is supported by volunteers and it takes time to go through all the extensions. To make things easier:

  • Make sure your download link leads directly to the download page. It makes downloading and testing the extension a whole lot easier.
  • Make sure a front-end/public/guest user can actually download the extension.
  • Test your extension to make sure the package can be installed.
  • If you have use the Joomla! logo anywhere, make sure it follows the logo guidelines.
  • If you need to make changes to your extension listing and it has not been published, do not submit another application. Removing duplicates takes up precious time. Instead, login to the directory and go under "My Pages." On this page, extensions pending approval will be marked as such and you should be able to edit them. Should you encounter problems with this, contact the directory editors.
