Adding a icon thumbnail to your WordPress plugin on the repo

Since the release of WordPress 4.0 you can now add a thumbnail icon to your plugin, which is featured in the plugin repo.


Doing this is very similar to adding a banner to your plugin. Simply create a 128 x 128 sized image and save it as the following filename:


Then upload it to your plugin’s ‘Assets’ directory and commit it to your plugin repository via SVN. Once done, your new thumbnail will show up next to your plugin in the search.

One much appreciated response...

    Once you have selected or uploaded the media you want to add, you will see a checkbox next to the thumbnail confirming your selection, and you will see the selected media displayed in the Attachment Details pane on the right hand side of the media uploader interface.
