MyStatus != myStatus (3 posts)

    There are now 2 plugins going by the name myStatus. The original has not been updated in years but still does exactly what I need. And the new kid which was released yesterday. Unfortunately WordPress's auto-update feature is assuming they are the same thing. If anybody else happens to use the original, be careful with those plugin updates!

    Hi Manzabar,
    Sorry about the duplicate naming, I did a search for status plugins before creating my own, and didn't come across any at all, I thereby assumed that none existed, and hence the naming shouldn't have been a problem. It hopefully shouldn't be a problem, as anyone using the old myStatus plugin shouldn't need to use my new one. However, I'll ensure that in my next release I include a warning regarding using both together and WordPress's auto-update feature.

    @DanielSands: I'm wasn't blaming you, just reporting it in case others run across the same issue. And it wasn't likely that you'd find the old plugin as it's not hosted with WordPress Plugin directory (which I find makes it kind of odd that the updater assumes the 2 are the same).
