WordPress is a great blogging platform and it constantly evolves into new versions.
That’s great but the problem is, everytime the new version releases, hundreds of wordpress plugins breaks. They no longer works. Fortunatley, if the plugin author still have interest in the plugin he/she developed then they’ll release the new version. But not all plugins enjoys such fate. Many of them get abondoned and let them dead when the plugin author never finds the time to devote on fixing the plugin.
I’m quite fortunate in this regard as I’m a programmer myself and it doesn’t matter to me if the author never updates the plugin for the new version. I or my team can fix the problem ourselves.
But normal bloggers don’t enjoy such freedom. If they are relying on a plugin and if it breaks then all they can do is wish that someday the plugin author fix the problem. And you know, for many plugins such wish never comes true. Most plugin authors devote their valuable time in creating a plugin when they have free time. But because of family pressure, requirements to earn and other many reasons a plugin author can’t work on a plugin continuously.
Here is a good news: I’m launching a new project called:
Bringing Dead Plugins Back to Life
Here I’m going to give you same luxury as I have:
- Getting the wordpress plugins fixed which are no longer working due to wordpress udpates and because the original plugin author can’t work on it anymore.
If you have liked a plugin very much but that plugin no longer work in the latest version of the wordpress then you can post about the plugin below. We’ll fix that plugin for free and make it available for download for free to all the wordpress users.
Before making a request for fixing a plugin, please make sure that it’s not a recent problem. If the plugin has broken since some days only then you should wait for the original author to get fixed.
If the plugin has been of no use since lots of days and you are quite sure that the plugin author don’t have time to fix it then please post about it in the comment below. We’ll fix the plugin and make it available.
For example: WordPress recently released the version 2.8 of wordpress. We won’t be fixing any plugin which has been broken in WP 2.8 as the original author might have plan to update the plugin and might be releasing the new version soon. However if a plugin is broken since WP 2.7 or prior to that then we’ll of course be happy to fix them.
