Support » Requests and Feedback » Plugins Abusing Their Notification Banner

  • I bought and used a Plugin by the name of Duplicator Pro by Snap Creek when I needed to migrate my Woocommerce site to a new server.
    Apart from all the issues I had with the plug-in (not recommended) it eventually got most of the job done.
    Now 2 months later the plug-in is not happy with the fact that the license was not reinstalled in the migrated site.
    It triggered the Duplicator Pro notice.
    What firm on earth would take up 1/3 of the real-estate of WordPress on the top of each home page, to put such an obnoxious and aggressive message as
    in big red letters
    Of course I heard about this from my client, the site owner. Why do I need to be explaining this type of bombastic nonsense to an angry client?
    This is THE MOST UNPROFESSIONAL THING IVE SEEN in my 19 years of being a web dev!
    Im trying to keep my anger civil but F! Snap Creek!

    So my suggestion to WordPress is that only a certain size of real-estate is allowed to plugins for notifications and that Plugin authors be discouraged or even banned from making highly inflammatory images that can server to undermine a client’s perspective of the web dev.
    Seriously – this shouldn’t even have to be written, but here it is!

    I hope some regulation or common governance can be employed.

  • WordPress has no way to stop that sort of thing. For plugins in the repository here it’s managed a little better, but for any 3rd party plugins like you’ve purchased from somewhere else, they can pretty much do what they want to.

    If you don’t like that, and I do fully understand why, you need to take it up with the vendor of that plugin as they are the ones that really need to hear it.
