    How often is the xml used by the plugin manager updated from the database?

    There was a bug in my Snippets-plugin settings. I think I fixed it, but when I delete the local cached files from my AppData-plugins directory and open the plugin manager I see it downloading the data, but inside the .zip is still a PluginManagerPlugins.xml file that is last modified on 27 March.

    The xml file is updated whenever Dave gets time, considers the plugins stable from testing by the community on the forums. Information on testing the xml file is given here: http://www.brotherstone.co.uk/npp/pm/#submitting.

    I adjusted my pluginmanager.ini, but it still downloads the zipped xml file and does not use the local test xml file. All I did was add the two entries mentioned on that site and adjusted them to my local path.

    I must be overlooking something

    You need the testing version of Plugin Manager.
