Support » Plugin: WP Mail Logging » Installs Extendify without permission

    So so irritating.

    I couldn’t understand why this Extendify / Redux block plugin was installed on my site. It wasn’t anywhere on my list of installed plugins.

    Eventually I see that this plugin automatically installed it without my permission !

    What gives you the right to arbitrarily decide to install other plugins on my site.

  • Hi @zactix – Chris from Extendify here. I’m not associated with WP Mail Logging, but wanted to add some context.

    I believe that adding the Extendify library was unintentional by the developer when they were updating one of our other frameworks that is used in WP Mail Logging. We have taken steps on our end to try to ensure this confusion doesn’t happen in the future with other plugins.

    We have been in touch with the developer and have submitted a PR to remove the Extendify library. I believe this will be updated soon.

    Sorry – that doesn’t make sense to me.

    How does WP Mail logging even use a block plugin ? It has nothing to do with it from what I can see.

    Secondly, I noticed there are other reviews complaining about this that are months old !

    Surely by now it should have already been fixed.

    I wonder how many of your active installs that you show for your plugin are unwanted and consist of people who happen to have WP Mail logging installed and don’t realise that they’ve unwittingly installed Redux / Extendify

    came here wondering about the same issue! This doesn’t make sense to me at all either. When are they going to fix this?

    @bronw3n The Fluent SMTP plugin which is free has this function built in.

    I’d suggest going with that or some other alternative.

    @zactix thanks for the info. I’m looking for a good alternative. This looks good too: https://wordpress.org/plugins/check-email
