    Can you give us an update on what’s going on? Is this a security issue, a licensing issue, something else..?

    Thanks!

    Not sure, wasn’t aware of this. May be security related. Will investigate tonight, reply here with an update.

    Thanks so much!!

    Just a quick update – this page has some info about why plugins can be closed. I should’ve received an email explaining what happened, but haven’t been able to find anything in my inbox or junk mail. I’ve reached out to the plugin directory to see if they can provide any info and what I might need to do to get it un-closed.

    My guess is that it has something to do with not being updated in 2 years, which might mean security or plugin directory guideline issues. I’ll have to wait and see if they get back to me about it. Worst-case, the reasons for closing the plugin should become public knowledge in 60 days.

    In the meantime, you can still get Webcomic from the GitHub repository, though I’d maybe hold off if there are security issues that need to be addressed.

    Another update – plugin directory got back to me, and the issue was pretty minor, actually. I do need to do a full security review before they’ll re-open the plugin, though, so I’ll get working on that. Will hopefully have the plugin available again soon!

    That’s great to hear. Thanks, Mike — and I’m sorry; this must be kind of a pain!

    Just keeping everyone updated on this: I’ve addressed the issue that got the plugin closed, but it now has to go through a review and security check (sort of like if I was just submitting it for the first time now). Not sure what the ETA is on that or what might come out of it as far as changes I’ll need to make, but once that process is complete Webcomic should be available through the directory here once again.

    Webcomic is back in the directory. I’ll be doing a more thorough review of everything, but FWIW the issue was not security related and Webcomic is, to the best of my knowledge, still very safe to use and compatible with the latest version of WordPress.

    Thanks a bunch! Relieved to know it, and grateful for your quick action.
