I got this incoming link to my blog from this site: http://andrewfordlyons.drew3000.net/2009/02/26/dab-of-paint/
Seems that guy did a package with many plug-ins and including also Cimy User Extra Fields.
My curiosity began when I read these words:
The design employs several plugins native to WordPress, among them, heavily edited versions of Customize Your Community and Cimy User Extra Fields.
I said: “Wow finally someone patched my plug-in again and improved it.”
I downloaded the pack and checked immediately version used of my plug-in, discovered that is an old v1.3.0-beta1, ok no problem, let’s see the “heavy edited lines” and discovered that is a 1:1 copy from my blog… strange!
So I downloaded the original version of Customize Your Community and diffed against the version in the package, results? Only 4 lines diff and all regarding html stuff, nothing related to features/bugs added/fixed.
I have to admit, I’m definitely proud that my plug-in is part of a plug-ins pack, but why states false things? I’m sure the author can comment here, maybe he just wrongly added the original versions.
In the meanwhile if you download the pack I suggest to update my plug-in at least, you’ll have all the bug fixes happened in the latest release and no… you won’t loose any of the “heavily edited” lines 😉
From the official page of the plug-in pack I read:
Here is my modified version of the WordPress theme as well as the set of plugins used. All these files should be used wit htheir own GPL or Creative Commons licenses in mind. As for my modifications, feel free to give credit or not. My changes should be considered as open for using, sharing and building on with or without attribution. This does not, however, nullify the crediting requirements or other terms of the designers and developers of the original theme and plugins. Give credit where credit is do, and share and share alike. If in doubt, check to see what their terms are in the readme files or at the creatorsâ€™ websites.
Answer: I will be happy to give you the credit, if you show me the real heavily edited of my plug-in 😉
