Support » Plugin: WP Plugin Update Server » Plugin closed on wordpress.org

    Dear users,

    This is with regrets that I saw this plugin removed from WordPress’ repository.

    WordPress has flagged this plugin as going against their plugin guidelines:

    Executing outside code within a plugin when not acting as a service is not allowed, for example:

    • Serving updates or otherwise installing plugins, themes, or add-ons from servers other than WordPress.org’s

    While I am not sure when this section was added to the documentation, it is merely a guidelines issue, not a security strike – after all, WPPUS was accepted and was available on wordpress.org for as long as 10 months.

    Regards,
