@bitfade

If you add something like this http://snippi.com/s/dq8xhcy it will clearly demonstrate that you allow it’s usage.

Thank you.
Ah, ok. I thought there was some github setting involved. Just released under WTFPL license

I believe your solution is much simpler and easy to maintain. Any chance you can set license on github if you allow other authors to use it?
I dont use github that much, i would i do that ?

@Gamajo
A while ago there was a discussion here about theme bundled plugins, i kinda felt like using your class would be the only permitted way to handle them but couldn’t get an official answer.

To hook into the wp upgrade system is an alternate approach (much simpler imho) and author on TF should be allowed to take advantage of it. That’s the only reason of this thread.

@bitfade, have you tested this with WP 4.2? Seems they’ve changed some of the plugin install screens, though unsure if this has any effect here really.
yep, i just tested with 4.2

we use it via ajax (example video) and can provide the js code if anybody interested

This is nice class but it looks like it doesn’t support theme bundled plugins and update ?

That’s exactly what the class does, here’s a screenshot

Just wanted to ask if there’s any rule that forbids us to use anything different from TGMPA to handle theme bundled plugins (install/update).

The class itself is huge, is/was affected by some bugs and missed some critical features (like updates) which some authors managed to address by customizing its code.

Rather than using the TGMPA class, one could just hook into the native WordPress plugin install/update system by using a very small amount of custom code. Since this way bundled plugins would be seen exactly like plugins installed from wp.org, there are very little chances of something going wrong.

We provided an example class using this method a while ago and are currently using it for our next theme.

Due do the recent add_query_arg exploit disclosure, i’m seeing some updates being rejected because using custom/wrong versions of the TGMPA class. Hence, i’d like to know if we’re allowed to use the provided solution.

Just stop trying to sell the idea that figures don’t matter and they cant be conveniently manipulated to gain an advantage over competitors. They do, they are and it works or people won’t bother trying.

Would take nothing to avoid such things here but it has been decided not to because those deals bring a lot of money for anybody involved. Fine. Just don’t try to sell another story.

First rule of ‘Theme Buying Club’ is to not talk about ‘Theme Buying Club’. Who’s in?
I have nothing to say about this “Theme Buying Club” you’re talking about.

But that member is employed by you, so he works for your company. The buyer must be separate from your business – a 3rd party, ie you don’t pay them and they don’t work for you.
It doesnt say anything like that. You cannot give your own item for free but a 3rd party (partner) can as long one license is purchased for every distributed copy. This means if somebody else does the purchase, the bulk order is legit, whatever relation exists between you and the partner.
