    Hello,
    Just wondering if there will be an update pushed soon? We have a policy to remove or replace plugins if they have not been updated in 6 months. This is showing 11 months. Any idea or acknowledgment of a push? Appreciated! Thanks

    I would like to know it as well. The plugin is cool and works fine, I would want support to be alive. I’ve seen that the creator of the plugin was active here 3 days ago. If the plugin works fine, maybe just do the formal update in order to WordPress to show that the plugin is up to date?

    The Display Posts plugin is fairly complete feature-wise. I’ll update it if there’s a new feature I think should be added, but I don’t have any new features planned currently.

    What about updates to the code for security or compatibility? That is typically what we are looking for as far as maintaining a plugin. I appreciate your response.
    Thanks!

    If a security or compatibility update is required, it will be made. This plugin is periodically security audited by Automattic because it runs on WordPress.com and WordPress VIP.

    After the first security audit in 2012 fixed a few minor bugs (this and that), we haven’t required any additional security updates.

    This plugin is simply a shortcode wrapper for a core piece of WordPress functionality, WP_Query. Any security issues around querying for content would be handled by WordPress core through WP_Query.

    The only potential updates to this plugin would be if WordPress adds new methods of querying for content (ie: new features in WP_Query). I would then make those accessible through Display Posts.

    Thanks for the explanation. Much appreciated!

    I just would like to know. I don’t know how it works but when you download the plugin. there is a text “This plugin has not been tested with your version of WordPress” and “The last update was 10 months ago”.

    It usually scares new and existing users. Maybe just do the “test” so that there is no such text?

    Thanks for the awesome plugin!
