Support » Plugin: CampTix Event Ticketing » Why has this plugin been shut down?

  • This plugin has been closed as of August 15, 2019 and is not available for download. This closure is permanent.

    May I ask why? This plugin is extremely useful and I would like to know if there is a security concern involved, or what the reason was to suddenly shut this plugin down. I cannot find anything online related to the reason for the shut down.

    Also, I would be interested in any other free options to replace this plugin, for non-profit organizations that used it to sell tickets for their fundraisers.

    There aren’t any security concerns, we’re still running the code on WordCamp.org, and it’s still available in the WordCamp.org repository.

    We just found that the maintenance costs associated with keeping it in the w.org repository were too great for something that is essentially intended to be a custom plugin.

    Thanks, Ian. I’m super disappointed, since the plugin works so well. Is it possible to update the plugin by downloading the .zip from the other repo, and just upload it on top of the existing one, or do we have to start over from scratch?

    There are really no other good plugins like this, for free. When we work with small organizations on limited budgets, your plugin was our go-to. You did good work while it lasted, and I thank you for that!
