any errors in log?

When you uploaded your new plugin, did you verify that it is enabled?

you can see it as the plugin is enabled

As you can see the plugin is enabled.....

yes the plugin is enabled....i tried to attach the snapshot...bt somehow it's not working....:-(

it seems somethink you missed in velocity files or atlassian-plugin.xml file

If the plugin is enabled ok, then then next question is whether you are offered the field *type* when you try to add a custom field. Most custom field plugins do NOT add a field, they enable a new TYPE of field and you have to add one in the same way you add all the standard ones. What happens when you go into the type selection for a new field? Are you offered the standard list, or is your new field type on there, or do you get a horrid Java stack trace? If it's the standard list, then can you check the log around the time you went into the screen, it will usually tell you if it's failed to get a handle on your field, and why.

Yes I am being offered the same list of fields.........
