Support » Plugin: Visitor Maps and Who's Online » Visitor maps and whos onlin

  • The plugin stopped working so I uninstalled it. Tried to then reinstall visitor maps and whos online but I cant find the plugin anymore. Is it still available?

    I tried to find it under plugins, add new and then search for visitor maps and whos online but it no longer comes up in search results. I cant find it on wordpress plugins website either.

    I have tried a different plugin for showing visitors but it is not as good.

  • I’ve had an alert from Wordfence to say that the plugin has been removed from WordPress. However, I don’t know why it’s been removed.

    I writed to the author yesterday, but no answer

    I am the original author of Visitor maps. This plugin had a new owner in June 2017 with a WP user profile name “fastsecure”. The new owner attempted to put code in several of his newly acquired WordPress plugins that would connect to a 3rd party server he also owned and place spam ads for payday loans and such in the WP posts.

    The new owner did not release any new versions of this plugin. The new owner never added spam code to this plugin like he did to other plugins he acquired. The last version I released was with safe code.

    I am sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. I never expected that this would happen. The plugin was taken off the WordPress repository by WordPress staff until this can be sorted out. Perhaps a new version will soon be published. I might be able to restore my Contributor status. In the meantime it should be advised to deactivate or uninstall the plugin until it is sorted out who will maintain it.

    I have version by Fastsecure, but you’re saying that he didn’t release any new versions of the plugin? If you released then he must have done, but would he have put spam code in it? I have to say that I haven’t seen any spam ads on my site.

    It would be good if you could take it over again. 😀
