    Since VisioList0 0.9 introduced plugin update checks, you might want to make use of this feature if you code plugins and post them here.

    This is pretty simple and all you need to do is complete a few simple steps.
    1) Create your plugin or alter your existing plugin. The info.php file needs a version number. This is specified via the following line
    $version = '0.1';
    2) Zip up your plugin

    3) Post it here
    - Add the version string from step 1 into the version string input
    - Unfortunately at this point, you do not know the plugin url yet. So we have to post a resource update later on

    4) Once posted, copy the url and add it to your plugins info.php
    $url 'The resource url goes here';
    5) Zip up the plugin again and post an update to your resource. The button/link to update it, can be found on your resource link from step 4

    Thats it, now users can check for updates to your plugin :)

    Is there a reference area or cheat sheet on making our own VisioList plugins? I'm pretty handy at coding and I'd like to explore the possibility of making and sharing my own VisioList plugins - Thanks.
