I'm looking for a specific functionality from a plugin and the author suggested that creating a second instance of the plugin would solve my problem.
After about 3 hours of playing with the code I've managed to run in circles and make a little progress but still have not succeeded.
Specifically, I'm trying to get a second instance of the 'table-rate-shipping' plugin for the jigoshop ecommerce plugin.
I asked at the jigoshop forums but was told that they couldn't help me without purchasing a premium account (which I actually did when I bought the plugin, but I let it expire because I never used it). Anyhow, I'm hoping someone here has some advice for me.
