Plugin disappeared from WordPress plugins (18 posts)

    Hello,

    (this message was ignored when sent with the submit a bug form on WP.org so I'm continuing here)

    Here's the URL our of plugin which recently disappeared from: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/fv-all-in-one-seo-pack/

    I can't see it on http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins nor in my profile with the other plugins I created. However I can open that page http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/fv-all-in-one-seo-pac when I log in with my account.

    • Can you please check on that to see what's wrong?
    • Has it something to do with the famous all-in-one-seo-pack plugin? The names are very common, but I can see some other plugin using the same name. Was it removed on purpose?

    We created the plugin because we missed some extra functionality, which the creators of the original plugin refused to add.

    Thanks,
    M.

    Hello aldenml,

    I'm not sure if you have the same problem as I do, the problem is, that some of our plugin links in style of

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/fv-wordpress-flowplayer/

    stopped working and disappeared from our profile and search results.

    Yes, I have the same problem. My plugin Light SEO (another AIOSP fork)
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/light-seo/

    disappeared from my profile and search results.

    I have no notification, no warning, nothing. I hope there is no obscure reason behind this.

    Well, our plugin is also AIOSP fork and it's called FV Simpler SEO Pack. It's amazing to hear that you have problems with forking the same plugin.

    I wonder who's Michael's Torbert's friend inside wordpress.org... I hope this is not more Semper Fi Web Design corruption.

  7. FWIW, the forums mods here have little (if any) control over the rest of the site.

    I'd do this:

    1) Go to http://core.trac.wordpress.org/
    2) Login with your ID and password from here. (I think the ID has to be lowercase, could be smoking crack...)
    3) Make a new ticket with the Milestone 'Wordpress.org site'

    Thanks Ipstenu, I just made the ticket. Hopefully someone can explain us what's happening.

    Actually, it's different people monitoring trac vs. maintaining the plugin repo, so the best thing to do is email plugins@wordpress.org to get assistance.

    Thanks janeforshort, I will do it now, together with another email to the WP Hackers mailing list (thanks to Ryan Hellyer http://www.wptavern.com/forum/plugins-hacks/1210-my-plugin-removed-wordpress-org-extend-directory.html#post11108).

    I hope one of these ways can provide me with some result.

    Thanks Jane and Ipstenu.

    Hopefully Alden and we will be able to get this resolved. Your suggestions are much appreciated. If anyone else has an idea why improved SEO plugins (in competition with Michael Torbert and Semper Fi) are simply not accepted and whom we should contact about this, please let me know.

    Thanks, Alec

    Thanks to Alden, WPTavern and with a big thank you to Mark Jaquith we were finally able to get this issue resolved today.

    FV All in One SEO Pack is available at both the WordPress plugin repository and at Foliovision.

    Cordial regards,

    Alec

    @FolioVision

    Who did you contact to get this resolved? My Plugin disapeared last night, and I have been trying to figure out why, but with no avail.

    My plugin is not SEO based, it's to customize the login page. It should be @ http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/my-brand/ but it's not showing up unless I'm logged into my WP.org account.

    Yes, I have the same problem. My plugin doesn't appear in the list and it's also not SEO based, it's to integrate a feedburner widget in the sidebar: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/feedburner-subscription-widget/ I'll contact with Mark Jaquith if I have the opportunity.

    Mark Jaquith sorted out Alden and I. Mark is trying to move away from being arbitrar of the plugins. There was an internal meeting where plugins@wordpress.org was selected as the official address for plugin issues.

    I'd try an email there and if not, you'll have to contact Mark directly. Hopefully Mark will find time to drop by and give some suggestions on alternate arrangements.

    Good luck with your plugins guys!

    KnxDT — Your plugin is injecting three SEO links into the widget's public view by default. The first one, a credit link, using reasonable link text, would be fine if you made it not display by default. Our policy is that you make the user take an affirmative action (like checking a box/radio button) in order to enable a credits link.

    You have two other links, also embedded by default, that link to blog articles on your site. They appear to have no relevance to the plugin.

    In order to get your plugin approved, at a minimum, you will have to remove these two irrelevant SEO links and make the credits link default to not being displayed.

    krisjay — Your plugin has some security issues. You're echoing out options without sanitization. You need to look into the esc_attr() and esc_html() functions. You may need to do manual regex filtering for the things that are CSS colors (# sign, then 3-6 digits of a-f0-9). As far as other issues go, I wasn't able to find anything. You're using appropriate licenses and aren't outputting SEO links or front-end credit links without permission. Please contact plugins@wordpress.org and ask for clarification.

    MarkJaquith I removed all those irrelevant links and disabled the credit link by default. Thank you.
