How to change extension name?

  • I published extension with name translated into my local language. Later I translated extension into English. I thought that en version will have en translation but it's not true - it still has previous translation.

    How to update extension name? I can't change this info in admin page

  • Yes, you do:

    1. Go here
    2. Click "Chromium extension" right next to your extension's picture
    3. Click "Edit details"
  • Extension name is not editable - it have readonly attribute

  • It is not editable once it is published. Part of the reasoning for that is that the slug is generated from the name, and the slug is part of the URL of the extension. We prefer not to change that, as we don't have a mechanism in place for issuing redirects after changed names. This might change in the future.

    If you are ok with changing the name not changing the slug/URL, you can ask on the wall of the extension, and we'll look at the rename when we have time.

  • Oops, sorry, I just saw the text field and assumed you could change it.
    In that case click your extension's status and ask mods to change it ;)

    @for_d dammit, you beat me by a minute :P

  • Thanks! I asked to rename extension
