[Plugin: WP Auto Tagger] Why it gets a 1/5

  • First, let me say that I love this plugin.

    It’s great, it does exactly what I want it to do but today I gave it a 1/5 rating for a very specific reason. It places a link in my database for advertisement purposes.

    Please don’t get me wrong, I know plugin authors need to make a living but this isn’t the way to do it.

    For those of you (like me) who love this plugin but hate how the author markets himself, simply open the plugin using your Plugins > Edit Plugins > WP Auto Tagger and make the following changes:

    First, delete lines 138 to 146:

    function tagger_activate() {
    	// Set defaults
    	// Please do not delete this link to support the plugin
    	global $wpdb;
    	if($wpdb->get_var("SELECT COUNT(link_id) FROM $wpdb->links WHERE link_url='http://wordpresssupplies.com/'")==0)
    		wp_insert_link(array('link_name' => 'WordPress Themes', 'link_url' => 'http://wordpresssupplies.com/', 'link_description' => 'Download Free WordPress Themes and Plugins' ));

    Next, update like 6

    Version: 1.3.2

    to a higher version number (say 99999999) to avoid future downloads of the authors original code.
