Why don't they hire the plugin developer to customize it? (3 posts)

    I see it all the time on sites like rentacoder -- employer wants to hire someone to add some functionality to an existing a plugin or tweak this and that about a plugin. Why do they never think to just hire the plugin developer to do this work?

    I've actually come into this situation a few times when a client hires me to customize or re-wite a plugin.

    What it boils down to is many times they (the client), will try to get ahold of the author of the plugin, but they never receive a reply back or the author is not interested in the job. Then the're left to find someone who can customize it to their needs.

    Perhaps they haven't checked the readme to find out where to contact the plugin's developer? Perhaps the plugin isn't being actively developed any more? Or they contacted the developer and s/he said no?
