    The upgrade admin notice displayed on the log viewer for free users should be dismissible. This has always been good WordPress plugin development etiquette.

    Hello @adamwalter,

    Thank you for using our plugin.

    In previous versions of the plugin the users could dismiss the notice because we were using WordPress’ built in notices. Though now we’ve built it as part of the interface. I will speak to the team and will make sure we take care of it.

    Should there be anything else we can assist you with, please do not hesitate to ask.

    Excellent! Love your plugin. Thanks for all the hard work.

    You’re welcome @adamwalter. Glad you love the plugin. Would appreciate if you can rate it here: https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/wp-security-audit-log/#reviews

    Thank you and should you have any further queries, do not hesitate to ask.

    We’ve paid for the All In One Bundle of plugins for several years now, but the new version of the plugin insists on filling our admin area with these annoying upgrade notices. Worse, these notices are visible to our clients, who aren’t technical enough to understand them.

    This plugin is good, it does its job well, and we have no complaints about that. But filling the admin area with annoying messages like this is unprofessional. It makes you look like a shady, money-grabbing plugin. Rather than driving users to upgrade, it’s liable to drive users away, especially if even paying customers are subjected to them and can’t get rid of them.

    Be professional. Be respectful. Don’t be annoying.

    Hello @marcusdowning,

    The adverts should not show when you have the premium add-ons installed. This was a bug in one of the previous versions but was addressed in the latest version.

    So please update the plugin to the latest version (3.0.1). If they persist, then there is an issue we do not know of. In such case, considering we are talking about premium add-ons please send us an email on support@wpsecurityauditlog.com.

    Thank you.

    Even if this is a specific bug, the general point remains: pushing your premium version so hard is a big turn-off.

    HI @marcusdowning,

    Thanks for your feedback. I am very aware of this and sorry if it is an inconvenience. Though this is the first time we are “pushing it a bit” we are still experimenting. We will be fine tuning it and toning it down as well with future updates.

    Should there be anything else we can assist you with, please do not hesitate to ask.
