    I want change the name of a Plugin to a name that is more likely to the real name of the Plugin.
    I want this for my Dutch users.

    For exmaple:
    "Calendarv2.0" is in Dutch "Kalender"

    Is this possible?

    Should be easy. open the plugina php and look at the top lines (ones that have been remarked out).

    You'll see something like

    Plugin Name: Event Calendar
    Version: 3.1.0
    Plugin URI:
    Description: Manage future events as an online calendar. Display upcoming events in a dynamic calendar, on a listings page, or as a list in the sidebar. You can subscribe to the calendar from iCal (OSX) or Sunbird. Change settings on the Event Calendar Options screen.
    Author: Alex Tingle
    Author URI:

    Just change the Plugin Name: to something more appropriate.

    A quick suggestion that helps me. I've gone ahead and changed the filenames for all of my plugins to plugin-whatever.php and mu widgets to widget-whatever.php. Since WPMu only looks at the header name instead of the filename, it doesn't muck anything up and it's easier to find stuff in teh plugin subdirectories.

    I'm with you on that one Doc. If it's standard plugins, I stick them in their own directory. Although I do have to edit files occasionally so it recognizes it right.

    Is this also possible by Themes?

    Yes exactly the same.
