  • Hi i have developed an extension for opera, i got 200 users in one week, my extension name is "stop-it" i have done a lot of updates, changes of my addon, i deleted the olders versions of my addon in my profile, and now when i want, try to upload my last addon, version 1.4.28 that keeps telling me i can't upload the file because a package allready exist with that name???

    how can we solve that???
    i CAN'T change the name of my addon.


  • You shouldn't delete them. Just upload updates and increase version numbers along with it.
    If you want to upload the same version again cause it's faulty, there are two options:

    1. click its status and tell mods about it. They are usually supportive and can delete it for you (tomorrow) so you can upload it anew
    2. upload it with an increased version number to replace it, i.e. 1.4.28-1 or 1.4.28-2

    You can also do the second option and tell mods to change versions before publishing.
    (If you entirely deleted your extension then there's no way but asking mods to restore it before you can upload updates to it)

  • I noticed that you at some point -uploaded- a package with the name "stop it v1.4.28", i.e. with the version number included in the name itself, and then you deleted it again. Can you go to your profile, find the "Stop it" extension in your list and see if you have a button saying "Upgrade"? It's here you'd upload the 1.4.28 version.

    For us "Upload" means "create a new extension", while "Upgrade" means "add a version to an existing extension".
