[resolved] Still seeing the unwanted link (4 posts)

  1. I'm using the 4.0.8 version of the plugin and I'm still seeing this <img ... > tag in my YARPP output.

    <img src="http://yarpp.org/pixels/..." alt="Yarpp"/>

    But I do not see the option in http://my-test-URL-here/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=yarpp to disable that.

    Per the plugin guidelines that is supposed to be off by default and dialing home without user consent is a plugin "No No".

    This has come up a couple of times already, can you please fix that in your plugin? Aside from the guidelines violation many people do NOT want a plugin to track usage like that.

    The update seemed to clear out the link for me. The check box is in the top right of the options page under "Help Improve YARRP". It should be unchecked.

  3. Huh. As it's a test installation I'll uninstall and delete the plugin.

    Heck, I'll even create a new table prefix. That'll reset everything. ;)

    *Changes table prefix, deletes YARPP directory, re-installs test WordPress installation, adds YARPP plugin, activates said plugin*

    Ah, I got it. Much thanks jt70!

    On a fresh installation YARPP 4.0.8 does not have that link and it defaults to off. Much thanks Jeff. When I activated the plugin it asks once if I want to enable that link.

    But when I upgraded from the earlier release apparently the option was still set and that data was still being collected.

    What I'd like to see is an admin option to enable or disable that on demand but that's just my preference.

    Edit: Double thanks for pointing out the option was right in from of me the whole time: "Send usage data back to YARPP!"
