Support » Plugin: WP Testimonials with rotator widget » Incompatibility / Breaks

  • Hi,
    Unfortunately WP Testimonials with rotator widget breaks when updating the FooBox Image Lightbox plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/foobox-image-lightbox/) from Version 1.2.34 to 2.5.2 and leaves a very tall blank area.

    I have copied over the site to a staging area which is password protected, is there some way I can send you the URL/login details privately as I’d rather not have it posted publicly?

    I have also informed the developers of the FooBox Image Lightbox plugin about the issue, but I thought it would be best to inform both parties.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Ha. That’s not good.

    Here’s what the reply is when an author does that.

    I’ve deleted your offer to login to your user’s site. I’m am 100% sure you mean well but please never ask for credentials on these forums.

    Now for the why: The internet is a wonderful place full of very nice people and a few very bad ones. I’m sure everyone here is very nice however, by giving some ones keys to your house you are trusting they wont steal anything. Likewise the person who takes the keys is now responsible for the house FOREVER.

    If something was to go wrong, then you the author may well legally become liable for damages, which they would not normally have been as their software is provided without warranty.

    Please be aware that repeatedly asking for credentials will result in us asking you to repeatedly stop before escalating up to the plugins team.

    It’s always a bad idea when a plugin author does that. If they did that here then they would risk losing their plugin here. But they did not do this here ln this site so there’s not much to do.

    @wponlinesupport I’m politely asking you to not do that in the future. It is unwise and always unsafe. It’s also not necessary and frankly, very lazy of you.

    There are many ways to get information you need and accessing the user’s site is not one of them. That’s going too far.

    You get the idea.

    Volunteer support is not easy. But these forums need to a safe place for all users, experienced or new. Accessing their system that way is a short cut that will get you into real trouble in these forums.

    Hi Moderator,

    I don’t quite understand your issue here. It was me who suggested giving out login details, the plugin author have never ‘repeatedly’ asked me for these credentials.
    Secondly, I believe their website is secure including their live chat.

    Yes, don’t do that again. That’s the issue here. Re-read what I posted.
