Hi Everyone,

In case you missed it…

Version 2 of the YouTube API was deprecated in March 2014. It has now been retired and is in the middle of being shut down.

Authors: If you use the YouTube API in your items, please double check that you are using version 3. If not, please update your items as soon as possible to avoid them breaking, as this may result in refund requests and in the items being disabled.

If you need to update your item, you may find YouTube’s migration guide useful.

Cheers,

Stephen

Hi All,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Here is a quick update:

1. The position is now closed (ie we are not accepting any new applications). 2. We have not yet appointed anyone into this position yet – we hope to hold interviews in the next couple of weeks.

We’ve had a lot of applications to sort through and have had some other delays as well, but are hoping to resolve this soon. Thanks for your patience.

Cheers, Stephen

Hello Stephen,

Yes but v2.4.2 doesn’t have “updating” feature to update the plugins and there is not any alternative except this forked 2.5.0-alpha-custom version.

Does it mean Envato reviewers will not approve the update with this (2.5.0-alpha-custom) version?

Thank you

Hi lidplussdesign,

Yes 2.4.2 is the recommended version for now. I believe that 2.5.0 will be out within a month or so, so it would be best to use 2.4.2 now for the security and bulk install fixes, then update to 2.5.0 once it’s stable.

Cheers, Stephen

I have tried to add multiple things from this thread with no avail. Could someone please send me the step by step instructions. I downloaded the Good Start theme from Theme Forest thinking all I was going to have to do was install. Not a very good experience so far and I know nothing about PHP. Any help getting this theme activated would be appreciate. Thanks!

Hi forwardcreations,

What are you trying to do? I assume you are not an author? If not, then basically you just need to make sure that everything is up to date.

If you are using the GoodStart theme, then this has been updated recently and you should update it. There should be instructions in the download file and if that doesn’t work you could always try contacting the author to see if they can help.

Cheers, Stephen

Is it safety to use version: 2.5.0-alpha-custom https://github.com/duckzland/TGM-Plugin-Activation

Can anyone to confirm?

Thank you

Hi lidplussdesign,

You should be using 2.4.2 of TGM PA.

2.5.0-alpha-custom is alpha software (ie not even beta). There are likely to be issues that need to be fixed etc before the final release and it can’t be considered stable.

Cheers, Stephen

Hi All,

I’ve updated the original post to say the following for TGM PA:

TGM Plugin Activation class
If you use the TGM Plugin Activation class, then you need to update your item to include version 2.4.2. Previous advice was to use 2.4.1, which addressed the security concerns, but which had a problem with the bulk installer. This has been fixed in 2.4.2.

Thanks Gary,

That’s great! It gives us clear version for everyone to use. I’ve gone ahead and updated the original post to say the following for TGM PA:

If you use the TGM Plugin Activation class, then you need to update your item to include version 2.4.2. Previous advice was to use 2.4.1, which addressed the security concerns, but which had a problem with the bulk installer. This has been fixed in 2.4.2.

Hi All,

Nice work @bitfade. I’d just like to give you our perspective on this.

We generally prefer people to use TGM PA. It’s normally a better result (for everyone), if everyone were to use that and to contribute changes back to that.

That said, we may possibly accept this solution, but we’d need to review it extensively before confirming that.

We’re a little stretched right now (responding to the add_query_arg vulnerability issue), so we need to ask people to stick with their current solutions for the moment – but it’s something we can consider in future

Cheers, Stephen

Hi All,

Sorry for the delay – there’s a lot going on at the moment. I know the situation must be frustrating.

I’ve just gotten back to Gary (Gamajo) with a possible plan for a 2.4.2 release. Hopefully that will make sense. I’ll keep you updated.

@rayoflightt – the 2.5.0-alpha is just that – an alpha version that’s not ready for production yet and is likely to change. I wouldn’t recommend it at this point.

@UXbarn – the current version of TGM PA doesn’t support updates. On the previous page, Gary responded to @KrownThemes about this issue and said if someone submits a pull request to their develop branch they’ll consider it.

To all those asking whether we accept modified versions of TGM PA – we prefer people to use the official version. It’s generally a far better result (for everyone), if everyone were to use the official version and to contribute changes back to that.

That said, we do accept the modified versions that are already being used by authors. If you are using one of these, you just need to make sure that it’s secure.

@KrownThemes – regarding @bitfade’s solution: Once again, we prefer people to use TGM PA. We may possibly accept @bitfade’s solution, but we’d need to review it extensively before confirming that. We’re a little stretched right now, so we need to ask people to stick with their current solutions for the moment – but it’s something we can consider in future. (I’ll comment over there as well).

Sorry for the brief responses, everyone… I’ll get back to you when I have more news. Thanks.

Cheers, Stephen
