    Hi @klaro,

    Apologies for the alarm/confusion. I posted a little info here:

    ok, but how can i be notified of new plugin versions?

    I answer myself, alone:

    @giancarlo74 if using from GitHub, you can “Watch” the GitHub repository, either for all releases, or for all communications.

    For anyone who’s purchased license or submitted email when free downloading from https://wp2static.com/download/, I’ll send emails when there are good stable new releases available (I don’t want to abuse the trust by sending too many emails).

    I’m still considering better ways to do things, so may make further changes to website and build in some update mechanisms within plugin. Especially for WP2Static, where there are many add-ons available, will look to make those installable from within the plugin.

    Leon, while I appreciate all the work you are doing for this plugin, the most confusing thing to me is the existence of these three plugins in your repositories:

    – WP2Static (yep, clear)
    – Static HTML Output Plugin (something that.. WP2Static evolved into..?)
    – Simpler Static (a competition of WP2Static from.. the same author?)

    Is WP2Static the one to go for and the later two are there for historical reasons?

    No, they’re all independent plugins, currently with different approaches that may work better in certain scenarios. There’s a bit about it on the forum, but will announce/do some videos to show the differences.

    Which one should I use today? For most general users, I’d say Static HTML Output 6.6.21 gives best results for lowest learning curve.

    New WP2Static has quite a few users, but currently leans more towards more advanced/scripted workflows.

    SimplerStatic is just an updated version of SimplerStatic at the moment, but that in itself, has benefits for some low resource hosting environments if the other 2 don’t work.
