WP to Twitter was my first plugin. I released it in 2008, as a project originally paired with a Pierre Far’s custom URL (Uniform Resource Locator) shortener, Cli.gs. (Now long gone.) I’ve maintained it steadily for 15 years. In 2012, I added the premium add-on WP Tweets Pro, so that I could afford to continue to update the plug-in. At it’s height, it had about 130,000 installations. That user base has since fallen to about 30,000. The decrease has a […]

Since adding the notification in My Calendar 3.4 that editing CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is going away, a few people have had questions about what’s happening. Users want to know how this change impacts them, and why I’m doing it. So I should talk about that a little. This is a significant change, but don’t think of it as an alarming update.

A lot of the big changes are under the hood. The last release updated the processes of creating and administering events, but this release is more subtle.

On January 15th, 2023, permanent plugin licenses are going to cease to be available from my plugin store. Any existing permanent license will be perfectly valid, and will remain unchanged, but I will no longer be offering permanent licenses for sale. This is something that’s been coming for a long time. I could probably afford to sell permanent licenses if I quadrupled the price – but that also makes any kind of budgeting almost impossible. Selling permanent licenses is not […]
