  • I’ve been bothered by this message for months, and I have a good relationship with this client, so I’ll see this for many more months.

    I didn’t build this site. I didn’t choose your plugin, and I don’t care that it’s been replaced.

    This particular site has 345 users that may see this message, only 7 who have access to plugins, and maybe zero who are going to act on it.

    Hi @salzano,

    It’s a shame nobody would act on it. It is my hope that the permanent nag would be enough for an admin to deactivate the plugin and seek out an alternative (even if it’s not my alternative plugin).

    The thought of users still using my plugin when I no longer support it doesn’t sit right with me.

    Anyway, seeing as you have a good relationship with the client, might I suggest letting them know that running an outdated unsupported plugin is not advised, and that there are alternatives that can do the same job.

    Good luck.

    Hi,
    Do what I did, in file ‘/wp-content/plugins/facebook-thumb-fixer_facebook-thumb-fixer.php’ replace

    function deprecation_notice() {
        ?>
        <div class="notice error ftf-notice notice-success is-dismissible">
    		<?php $open_graphite_url = 'https://wordpress.org/plugins/open-graphite/'; ?>
            <p><?php printf( __('<strong>Important:</strong> The <strong>Thumb Fixer for Social Media</strong> plugin is no longer maintained. It is recommended you switch to the free (and better) <a href="%s">Open Graphite</a> plugin instead.', 'facebook-thumb-fixer' ), $open_graphite_url); ?></p>
        </div>
    	<script>
    		$('.ftf-notice').click(function(){
    			document.cookie="ftfwarned=yes; expires=Wed, 1 Jan 2020 12:00:00 UTC; path=/";
    			var delay = 0; 
    		});
    		<?php 
    			$warned = $_COOKIE['ftfwarned'];
    			if($warned == 'yes' && is_user_logged_in()) { ?>
    				$('.ftf-notice').remove();
    			<?php  }
    		?>
    	</script>
       <?php 
    }

       <?php */
    }

    and its gone.
