I am developing a custom payment plugin for the PayPlan component. Below is the structure which I made after referring to the URL: https://github.com/readybytes/PayplansCustomApp








When I install it via the Joomla Extension Manager, it installs successfully, but when I open my plugin, it does not shows any fields, as it is possibly taking the firstdata which is in the root folder not the firstdata.xml which resides inside the app folder that contains fields defined in the XML file.

What I'm not able to understand is, do I have to make that kind of structure in order to install the plugin or there is any other way around to make a plugin(app)?

  • Did you use that phing script to create your custom plugin?

  • Ok I don't know these kind of plugins but I would suggest to build your plugin with the help of the phing script just to be sure you didn't make a mistake. What's the content of your xml file in the app folder?
