wp-plugins.org hijacked (6 posts)

    Several places in the documentation link to various pages on http://wp-plugins.org, but that domain has been hijacked.

    I expect you'll want to update the documentation.

    Here's a sample:

    I did, thanks, and it timed out.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    There is a thread that already discussed this, and apparently control of the domain has not been lost and will be restored at some point. I don't understand what's taking so long myself, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    For everyone's information (and because the search functionality on this site isn't brilliant to say the least), the earlier thread was:

    Basically, Craig (NuclearMoose), the owner of that domain had forgotten to renew the domain. Craig and Matt are working on this so there's no need to worry.
