How-to Guide? (1 post)

    Up-front, I'm a php newbie, so sorry if this seems dumb.

    I downloaded the plugin dependency plugin and I've gone through all the documentation I can find, however, I'm not exactly sure how to set up everything.

    For example, I am using the WP-reCAPTCHA plugin for registration, comments, and a contact form. I don't like the html and css that the plugin inserts into my page and want to update it but don't want it overwritten (obviously) when the plugin is updated.

    Do I copy the plugin a create a 2nd plugin folder, say "WP-reCAPTCHA Child"? What is the name of the file I'd have in this new plugin folder? Would I add the folling to this file?

    /*
    Plugin Name: WP-reCAPTCHA Child
    Depends: WP-reCAPTCHA
    */

    I was looking at the "installed plugins" page in WP for new plugin dependency-fields like in the screenshots on the plugin page, but no such luck.

    Any help in the right direction would help, thank you.
