    WTF with your review guys? This plugin is the best and better than the others read more plugins!

    Take a look at the bottom of each page of your blog/website.

    The "Auto More Tag" Plugin - Hijacked Space on my Website. Mr Weston was kind enough to add this text and link to every page of my website(s) where I used his "Auto More Tag"

    "PHP/MySQL Components, WordPress Plugins, and Technology Opinions at TravisWeston.com"

    Rotten Pool Mr. Weston!

  3. For any and all plugin related issues or violations of the rules please report them to plugins [ at ] wordpress.org. It's the best way to bring these problems to light.

    In this case, this plugin violates item #10 of the plugin guidelines.


    10. The plugin must not embed external links on the public site (like a "powered by" link) without explicitly asking the user's permission. Any such options in the plugin must default to NOT show the link.

    But it does it in a cute way. The plugin does not set the option when you install it. But when you configure the plugin it defaults "Give Credit Where Credit is Due?" as "Yes" and you have to manually change that to "No."

    In order to use the plugin you need to set the options and defaulting that option to "Yes" is against the rules.

    I'm not on the plugins review team (that's too much honest hard work for me and I lack the PHP chops) but send the D/L an e-mail and include these details. If the review teams finds it to be in violation of the rules then they'll reach out to the plugin author.

    Thank Jan.

    I'll leave it uninstalled on http://www.CuramoveUSA.com as it is primarily a website with a very limited blog. It's easy enough to add "More Tag" s manually. I had not noticed the "Give Credit where credit it due" I remain a little pissed because I don't like being blind-sided plus the link that was created did not take you to the creators website with help etc about the plugin but to an unrelated blog.

    It's an easy way for Mr. Weston to get inbound links to his blog, unwittingly from folks like me.

    Yes the issue was resolved and I have since gone back to using the plug-in on some sites.
