In this guide, I will use TortoiseSVN software to checkout a WordPress plugin.
Step 1. First, download and install TortoiseSVN software: https://tortoisesvn.net/downloads.html
Step 2. After installation, you will need to restart your computer so that the TortoiseSVN options are enabled in the File Explorer context menu.
Step 3. Go to the folder where you would like to download plugin files, right click and click on SVN Checkout..
Step 4. A new popup will display and you should insert the link to plugins SVN Repository:
The link to the plugin SVN repository can be seen from WordPress.org > Plugin page > Development > SVN Repository
That’s it! After the checkout is finished you will see and plugin files inside these folders:
assetsfor screenshots, plugin headers, and plugin icons.

- Releases go in
- Divergent branches of code go into
branche– this directory is no longer created by default.
