While we didn’t plan to do any releases before we finish the 1.6 version with lots of new features, including Auto updates, Table Constructor, Google Docs support, and many more, some important security issues interrupted our plan, so we had to release version 1.5.4.
While WordPress itself is a free open source community-developed content management system, WordPress plugins as well as themes might be a “gold mine” for developers who would like to invest their experience and knowledge and earn some money. But it’s quite a common thing that the time and effort invested never get paid off, and an excellent item isn’t sold that well. Why does it happen? I tried to summarize my experience in this article that may be helpful to some beginner WordPress plugin authors, and give several tips that might be useful.
We received several complaints regarding accessibility of our wpDataTables Free Demo Sandbox site – apparently some malware blockers prevented the users from accessing it. Therefore today we moved our sandbox to a new address: http://sandbox.wpdatatables.com – now the problems shouldn’t appear again.
As previously announced, we are on our way towards a better organized developing and support process, so by the end of this week we plan to switch all support workflow to our internal support system, which will allow us to manage tickets for bugs, questions, or feature requests.
For now we are testing it to see if everything works fine.
Beta testers needed
Hi everyone! The experience of the two last updates wasn’t so smooth; the bigger the update is – the more problems it may potentially cause, and something that works fine on my testing environment may crash on other WP installations. Therefore I’d like to find several people (3-5 would be enough for now) for “beta testing”.
