Support » Plugin: Crayon Syntax Highlighter » Can someone adopt this plugin?

  • So… the plugin hasn’t been updated in 3 years. The author’s website appears to have no blog posts since 2013 (and has a copyright date of 2016.) And they haven’t been responsive to any support questions in a number of years either.

    This is one of those plugins with still more than 50,000 installs despite the lack of support and updates (honestly it’s a bit hard to transition away from even if you find an alternative because you have to go through all of your posts that used it to replace it.)

    Does anyone know enough to take over this plugin to test and apply security updates?

    And since the author isn’t responsive … I’ve seen a few other plugins with a huge following have WordPress go through their process to allow someone else to take it over. But I don’t personally know how to start that process.

    Thoughts?
    Volunteers?

    This goes beyond my current skill level but I wanted to start the conversation in case it could keep a good plugin alive.
