I have a Wireshark plugin, which failed loading in Wireshark with the following error.

The plugin "" has no "plugin_register" symbol

How can I resolve this?

Previously it failed because of no plugin_version, which I resolved by adding

WS_DLL_PUBLIC_DEF const gchar plugin_version[] = "0.0.1";

See section 5. of README.plugins in the source doc directory.

That section of the README discusses the additions you'll need to make to your dissector to match recent (> 2.5) changes in the plugin interface in Wireshark.
