How to Correctly Zip Plugins and Themes

In the past when working with the exclusive RRW software, plugins and themes were automatically zipped after branding.

Now the plugins and themes are placed into directory of your choice and you must zip (package) them before uploading or offering to others.

Even if you do not use the RRW software, this tutorial may help as it applies to plugins and themes in general. Let’s get started!

As the image shows I use 7-Zip software. You can use the built-in Windows version or any other long as the software outputs a standard zip file.
