What kind of drawbacks did you address? I use WordPress multisite a lot, especially in my own personal use, but for clients as well with multiple locations for their store. I’d definitely be interested in hearing your insights as I can think of a couple drawbacks myself that I’ve had to “hack” my way around.
@WPWiseOwl I am not trying to be dramatic, just simply venting my frustration. I am obviously a big fan of WooCommerce, it is certainly better than other WordPress options IMO, but some of their changes are a big ridiculous at times. In version 2.1 they decided to rename many hooks, filters, and functions, simply to reduce the length of the name. As a developer that is incredibly frustrating because if you don’t get all of them, something will break. It just seems like a waste of time. If you’re going to improve something, I am all for upgrading, but making things not backwards compatible is an unnecessary hassle. I can’t say my heart doesn’t sink every time they come out with a new version and I wonder how much time I will need to devote to changes rather than upgrades.
Good stuff here, definitely cool to recognize a lot of these names on here. Guess I never realized that moderators were volunteers. What a generous way to give back, thank you
I love these stories! Montreal is a fun city, but admittedly I haven’t met a whole lot of nice people there on my visits. So nice to ‘meet’ such a nice person not just in Montreal but in this awesome community! It’s inspiring and makes me feel grateful to be counted among this group of extraordinary talent.
That is superb that you guys are on top of this and help out authors. Goodness knows we’re all busy enough. Would it kill WooCommerce to put out an update that DOESN’T break everything?!
That’s cool, definitely any help to get an item started is a good idea! That’s the hardest part
A couple of you mentioned ‘YahnisElsts’. I tried this when other things weren’t working but I ran into the same problems. Are you able to get it working on network sites because I can’t. As soon as I visit the network plugins page, it cannot find the information (because plugins not network activated evidently don’t load) and it erases the information in the transient belonging to my plugin. I can’t see a way around it since my primary plugin file won’t load there… I added a die() to the first line to be sure.
Just some helpful information if anyone else needs it… for some reason I could not find these articles using the Tuts+ search engine, but Google returned them and I am so glad it did. These are two excellent tutorials to get you started in understanding how to auto update your plugins:http://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/distributing-your-plugins-in-github-with-automatic-updates--wp-34817
