Support » Plugins » I am done maintaining my plugin

  • Hi,

    I used to be a web developer, but now I am not. I am tired of the work it takes to maintain my plugin as WordPress changes and API stuff is broken. I don’t have the time or energy to figure out what is different in each version of WordPress- the latest version really broke things. I’ve 33k downloads and people email me every week asking me for help/updates/fixes. The plugin is called Better Backgrounds. What should I do?

    You could contact plugins [at] and ask for the plugin to removed from the Plugin Repository. Or you could look around for someone to take the plugin over from you.



    Please do! I’m sure somebody will be willing to take this project over.

    I just had a fantastic idea! How about you made your position clear on entry of plugin? I realize this is being user friendly way over what can be expected, plugins typically just die, but wont you also benefit from this bold move?

    -10 points if you dont.
    +10 points if you do.

    Could also state plugin would be thankful for a takeover.

    And remove your email address 😉
