Support » Plugin: weDocs - Knowledgebase and Documentation Plugin for WordPress » Looks abandoned but working well

  • This WordPress documentation plugin looks really cool but has no updates in the last 6 months

    However I contacted the author and they told me that they don’t update WeDocs plugins because they don’t have any bug.

    So I tried it and so far, it’s simple but working OK

    Who said it’s abandoned? That would be very wrong.

    There is no updates means it is a stable version and doesn’t have any bugs. Our teams is also actively uses weDocs everyday for our 2 sites.

    Be assured 🙂

    Hi Tareq,

    Yeah but a plugin without updates in 6 months – and as you don’t develop it, soon no updates for 8 months, 10 months, 1 year
    Will be not compatible with new versions of WP, with other plugins, will have vulnerabilities, will have no new features .. ?
    That’s the strength of WP to have updates on each component every 1-2 weeks

    I teach people not to use any WP component if it has no update in the last 1-2 months

    Now you make me doubt

    I’ll give it a try and give you 5 stars if it works perfectly
    + all my love, because it’s free

    As long as the “tested up to” matches latest WordPress version means it still supported. Updates don’t necessarily need to occur within X months for it to be considered abandoned.

    Also an abandoned plugin won’t have support / replies from the authors 🙂

    👆Right on!

    Good 🙂 Using it now and changed my review to 5*

    What about using WeDocs with a membership access plugin, if I want to show only the documentation with people having a specific login, will it work ?

    Well you’re in luck. I’ve customized wedocs for Paid Memberships Pro and only members can gain access to documentation. I don’t work for wedocs, and I’m not sure how I can go about showing you my customizations?

    Maybe reach out to me on Twitter and we can take it from there (@andrewlimaza)

    I guess any membership plugins has access control system based on the membership label and should provide a access metabox on post types. In that sense, you could restrict the users by specifying the level.

    Nice 🙂 I’ll use the standard control that Tareq talks about.
    Thanks for the offer Andrew
