Support » Plugin: Theme My Login » Removing almost all useful features

  • Looks like a classic bait and switch as clickharder mentioned. Existing users can get a discount however you have to pay a yearly license per site.

    They’re removing the majority of features that made this plugin even worth using.

    • This topic was modified 3 years, 4 months ago by kraisor. Reason: They are letting people continue to use the old version and will be keeping it up to date with security patches

    So that fact that the plugin still does what the name implies it does is not enough?

    You are more than welcome to continue using the 6.4 branch, by the way.

    The plugin currently has 293 reviews, none of which are applicable as soon as the new version launches as the entire feature set is completely different.

    Will you be releasing security patches for people who opt to continue using the 6.4 branch?

    I would beg to differ. Perhaps if the review mentions a specific feature…

    The 6.4 branch will be supported with security patches and bug fixes as needed.

    Okay, well I can respect that if you’re still pushing security patches for historical users that stick with the 6.4 branch.

    I think that you should add a warning that if someone updates then they will lose a lot of the features, if that’s the case then I will change my review score accordingly because then you would be acting in good faith imo.

    Thank you for being reasonable!

    Hi @kraisor,

    We’re sorry that you don’t feel the features of the core plugin, such as theming your login, registration and lost password pages, are not valuable as a standalone plugin. Although we don’t agree, we would like to mention that you can now get the legacy extension files for free: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/theme-my-login-7-free-extensions/

    @jonanderson, @clickharder, Please don’t post on people’s reviews. If you have a question for the author then open a support topic: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/theme-my-login/#new-post

    I’m changing my review back to a 5 star, I accidentally clicked on update and the update was stopped because it has to be enabled in the settings. As long as security patches come out to address any possible vulnerabilities then I’m happy.

    Thank you for your sensible update!
