Support » Plugin: cForms - Light speed fast Form Builder » Possible namespacing issues

  • Resolved bgermann


    Dear @compojoom,

    as you publish the CForm plugin, you should be aware of the cformsII plugin that was published some years ago at and then at (both of which are not available anymore). I created a fork of that plugin that is available under now.

    As you are the new kid in town using “cforms” as your plugin’s name, please be sure not to cause any namespace issues with the two mentioned plugins. I do not see any PHP function or class name that could cause an issue and also the database table names are not an issue (by chance, as one is very similar?).

    But you use “cforms” as your Text Domain, which is used by the original cformsII . And in your readme’s manual installation instructions you also mention a cforms folder, which is also used by cformsII. Please change both of them to your plugin slug (cforms-plugin). For the Text Domain that is required by the plugin guidelines and you will find people’s plugins using “cforms” as folder name being deactivated on an update as the update uses “cforms-plugin” as folder name.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    Hello @bgermann,

    thanks for the heads up, i am going to adjust it accordingly.

    We actually submitted it as CForms (e.g. Compojoom Forms) and the plugin was renamed by the admins. (Because of naming conflict, didn’t check before to be honest) Still catching up, changing it everywhere. Will make sure that there are no conflicts.
