@azpub As you have not responded, I have manually unsubscribed you from the emails from this forum.
You are still subscribed to several individual topics, however the forum subscription has been removed.
@pcavejr Unlike Drupal, updates in WordPress do not generally cause incompatibilities. WordPress strives for backwards compatibility.
Assuming that they’re running 5.6, then there is likely no reason that they cannot update to 5.9.2.
If, for whatever reason, they are skittish about staying on 5.6, then they can update to the 5.6.8 version. This one will have the security patches backported to it.
There is no way to give you a diff and ask you to patch it yourself. That is not how WordPress works. Each patch builds on that which came before it. The fixes that were made in 5.7.1 would have been backported to the 5.6.3 patch. However, there have been later security updates which went into 5.6.4, 5.6.5, etc. This is why they are recommending 5.6.8. Any previous versions in the 5.6 line are *not secure*. Only 5.6.8 is safe in the 5.6 branch.
In other words, all of those “247 changes” you found are security related. Every single one. Once each new branch is released, only security updates get backported to older branches. Once 5.7 came out, 5.6 received no further updates except security backports.
However, again, you likely can just update to 5.9.2 without any compatibility issues. You’re worrying over nothing, most likely.Forum: Plugins

@3sonsdevelopment We understand, however we discourage even mentioning such here on the forums.
In general, it is bad practice for users to expect it to be safe or even a good idea to give out their credentials to random strangers on the internet. That’s a level of trust that should be very strong.
So, just telling somebody to “go file a ticket at the official place” is enough, you don’t also need to say “so we can get your login credentials”. That ask in that manner, even if you’re asking them to do it in a safe way, is still disallowed.
WordPress.org can auto-update plugins for security reasons. This was one of those cases, the fix was a security update only, no other changes were in the plugin update.
That is a good question, however, they didn’t get it from WordPress.
It’s been a day and you still have not unsubscribed. Are you having troubles? Please respond.

Your plugin header actually says that it’s Version: 1.0. You should update the version correctly:
@natewl We actually have a bit of a video to help explain that:
@natewl We did not “delete your ability to log in”.
This website is WordPress.org. It is a totally different website than your website. They’re not the same thing.
Your website once ran the WordPress software… on your own website. Which is different from this website. WordPress is not one big interconnected thing. Every website runs its own software on its own set of servers.
You cannot login here with login information from there, because it is a different website which is not connected to your website. Until you understand this, you’re going to have a hard time understanding what seems to be the problem here.
Now, you had hosting at GoDaddy. If you deleted that hosting completely, then yeah, you’re probably screwed, because that hosting was where your website actually was. If you didn’t delete that hosting but just repointed the DNS, then your website’s files and data are probably still there. Until you access it, we don’t know and we can’t tell you, because we cannot see into your hosting systems.
As for additional information, you haven’t given any. You were asked to gain access to the File Manager and see if any of your website files were still there. Were there any? If so, then you may have hope in recovering them.
@natewl It is important to understand something here: There is no company named “WordPress”. Your site was not “created by wordpress.org” because that is impossible to do.
See, WordPress is a piece of free software. It’s made by a volunteer community, and we organize it here, on this website. We can’t “delete your data” because we don’t control your data. We don’t hold any of that data for your website.
It’s like thinking that using Microsoft Word and then deleting the document somehow means that Microsoft has a copy of your data. They don’t.
Now, you say that you were hosted at GoDaddy, which means your data is there on GoDaddy’s systems. It’s not here, and it never was. We don’t have access to your data over there.
Earlier, @stfrosty gave you some very useful advice and information. Please read what people are saying, because as long as you think that somehow we’re withholding something from you, then you’re not going to get the answers you want.
We didn’t do anything to your site, and we don’t have anything here to give you other than advice and help. But we’re willing to help if you explain and listen to those people trying to tell you how to find your data.
No, WordPress does not make the email addresses available to the public.
Theme search appears to be working fine: https://wordpress.org/themes/search/blue/
If you’re having this problem on your WordPress site, then it is possible that your web server is unable to connect with wordpress.org. That’s not a problem we can fix, you need to ask your hosting provider about that.
Akismet was blocking your profile update, probably because of your email address.
I’ve marked it as okay and you should be able to update it now, however, it may revert to seeing it as spam after a while. I would suggest using a different email address.
