[Solved] Problems uploading the extension to the market

  • Good day! Who faced this problem?
    I developed an extension for the opera browser and posted it on the market.
    I was notified that the extension is being moderated.
    But within 2 weeks the status has not changed.
    I removed the extension from the market in order to upload it again.
    But now the opera market reports that such an extension already exists.
    There are 2 problems.

    1. Very long moderation.
    2. What to do with a deleted extension, because I cannot place it again (there is an option to rename the extension, but this option does not suit me)
  • @timeweb Hi! Thank you for reporting the problem.
    The system works as expected trying to prevent extensions hijacking.
    Before you deleted your addon you were warned that:

    • the operation can not be undone
    • you will not be able to upload another add-on with the same name

    The moderation is slow and we are sorry for that. Please do not delete and reupload extensions again because it will only make it slower.

    What we can do for now is rollback the changes manually. Please contact us on your extension wall as we will need some actions to be taken on your part.

  • @wzielinski Thank you! What information do you need to provide to roll back the changes?
    Do I understand correctly, this will allow to upload the extension to the market again?

  • @timeweb Hello,

    Please try to upload extension again with the same name.

  • @wzielinski Thank you! I was able to upload the extension again.
