    Hi!

    Thanks for the updates, I really appreciate it.

    Maybe it’s a better strategy to check and verify the updates before pushing them to users? I think this flood of updates is not really efficient. It is quite easy to create a test setup where you can try out the plugin’s updates before they go “into production”.

    Thanks!

    Hey there! I appreciate the criticism, I totally get it. We’ve tried for 2 years to fix and debug these things in every way we can think of. We downloaded over 50 themes that use Redux and tested against them. Alas, theme developers use our cod in ways we never intended. So We find that we’re having to put in a lot of “fixes” to fix the varied ways in which our code has been used.

    I’ll give you a great example. Today I discovered that some themes are using a “data” argument as an “array” while others use it as a string! So I had to add some extra code to accommodate for both. Alas, what happens when you want to ensure 100% backward compatibility.\!

    Hopefully today will be the last day of updates. Things are working much better for people now. If you have a bug please do let us know. We’ll gladly work to resolve it.

    Here’s another prime example. Devs decided to bypass the framework so I had to add an empty file to fix their import. 😉

    Hi Dōvy, thanks for your reply. I understand, this Framework is probably also something completely different from the average plugin, which makes testing complicated. Again, I appreciate your work! 🙂
