GD Star Rating
Is this Plugin Still "Active"? (4 posts)

    I am getting ready to implement a ratings plugin on my site and from all I have read this is the best plugin to use. However, it seems like the developer has just dropped the project. All links to the site from the WP Plugin page are broken, a new version was supposed be launched months ago but nothing, and in general the developer site is a disaster.

    My fear is putting in tons of work to figure this thing out and then have it no longer be supported. If the developer is out there, and still breathing, can you please let us know what is going on? Why are all the links on the Plugin page dead? (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gd-star-rating/) They just go to a 404 not found. Looks like a great plugin but I don't have alot of confidence in its future right now. Thanks!

    Nah, I don't think so - the developer is getting ready to release 2.0 - as the website says - http://www.gdstarrating.com

    A month is a long time in open source but it's also not a long time. It makes sense that a solo developer would go silent while preparing for a big release.

    Maybe I'm wrong. That's my impression.

    Yea, I was thinking the same thing but it is just odd that he would let all the links back to his site go down. You would think that he would keep all the old stuff up so people aren't asking questions like this. Thanks for your input.

    So I have been looking around the developer site and it looks like the newer version they are building of this plugin is going to be a total rebuild. Does anyone know if you will be able to upgrade from the old version to the new 2.0 version? The main concern is if I take the time to get this working am I going to have to start from scratch when the new build is launched or will we be able to transfer all the old ratings and data with an upgrade?
