[Resolved] [Plugin: Advanced WP Columns] Majorly fishy plugin…..

  • WARNING!!!!

    Let me start at the end of my trial run experience- Directly after downloading and installing this file (and only this file) I got the nastiest malware invasion of my life. It could have been a coincidence but I don’t think so. Seven work hours later and I am still cleaning up the mess.

    Now, as for this plugins actual functioning –

    Upon uploading to WordPress, FireFox crashed. I reopen and and activate plugin and it crashes again. Still not convinced it was the plugin (boy am I an idiot) I tried to use it. Well, it doesn’t work of course. All columns are layered on top of each other and come out a garbled mess. Oh, yeah, and then my PC went insane.

    Be warned……..

    Well, source code is available here, so anyone can check, there is no way that your computer was infected by this plugin.

    Eh, I was probably wrong about that. I looked into it and more and couldn’t find anything in the files themselves that would lead to that. Sorry for sounding a false alarm. Though, it does still render the columns as one jumbled overlaid column…… I will mark this as resolved. You have my apologies.

    Which version of WordPress do you use, and which browser?
    …next time please check before you jump to wrong conclusion and false alarm. Apologies accepted.
