Why duplicate my plugin?

  • Hi,
    I can’t believe you copied my code word for word (especially the settings page). I know I used some of your code of the widget to expand your plugin to also work on a page or post with shortcode. And I acknowledge you for it and you thanked me.

    Then you went behind my back and copied my code to make your plugin do exactly the same as mine… What is the point in that? You don’t even seem to be using your own plugin, beside the original widget.

    At least acknowledge my work with something like: All the code, layout and wording of the settings page as well as the list layout and idea for grid layout was directly copied from hugo.

    Please explain this to me…

    Hey, sorry, I just noticed this post. I’m new to working on open source projects and I didn’t know what the best practices are. My apologies. Your combination of mine and hugo’s plugins definitely added new value by combining 2 different things, and mine definitely just copied what you did. I will definitely give you and hugo credit. And thank you again for giving me credit.
