I guess this entire problem is coming up as you're hard-coding a plugin
foldername into your plugin files?
Ideally a function is needed to return information about the current
Here is some code i've used before to determine the folder WP is installed
in: $folder = dirname(plugin_basename(__FILE__));
(That code is off the top of my head, but should be allright)
In a smilar fashion, theres a trac ticket for adding plugin_url to return
something like http://.../wp-content/plugins/my-plugin-folder/

It should be simple enough to simply change the plugin name in the .php
and readme.txt files, but you'd retain the same slug(ie. it'd still be
persistent-styles-plugin, yet called "Persistant Styles").
Its possible to get the folders changed though, just required a
wp-plugins.org admin to do it though i think.
