Support » Plugin: Shortcode in Menus » Is this plugin dead?

    Hello!

    It looks like this plugin has not been updated for over a year now, and I was wondering if it will get any future updates and be maintained with new features, and most importantly new security updates.

    Since many hack attacks rely on holes and vulnerabilities of plugins, using outdated plugins could be a a big risk for getting your site hacked.

    Please let me know.
    Thanks!

    We’ve used all the inbuilt WordPress functions, and thats why, its not breaking or need any security updates as of yet. With every release of WordPress we do check our plugins, to ensure they’re working properly, its just that we don’t release an update as its not needed.

    @gagan0123 you should release an update even though nothing truly needs fixing. Even though it’s a change in your readme.txt with new text etc.

    Last updated date is a ranking factor in the new plugin repo

    Finally released the new version with some code refactoring.

    Thanks for updating it.

    A weird issue happened, as soon as I updated it, the plugin became disabled without me doing anything.

    I re-enabled again and it’s all good.

    Since I refactored the code, I moved the main file from index.php to shortcode-in-menus.php, could be that caused the activation problem. Now the code is almost inline with the plugin structure I use these days.

    I’ll still need to create a separate class for admin UI, and include it only when Dashboard is open and not in frontend. This will make the plugin a bit faster in terms of performance.

    Also thinking of finally implementing the shortcode in titles as well.

    All this in my todo list for this week.

    Ok, so it’s not a big issue and the plugin will continue to work properly right?

    This is what I got:

    The shortcode-in-menus / index.php plugin has been disabled due to an error: The plugin does not have a valid header.

    Thanks for looking into it. Well, thats exactly the problem, upon hitting update, its going to deactivate, but I tested it out, no other issues were found, upon re-activating works exactly like before.

    Ok that’s great, thanks for letting me know 🙂
