Goodbye wordpress.org

Goodbye wordpress.org
Oant sjen, wy wienen de suckers… 🙁

Fjouwer jier nei te gean oan de wordpress repository, en 189,795 downloads letter, Tillefoankaarten sil it ferlitten fan de wordpress.org repository.

Skynber, al dizze tiid ús Widget hie in link nei ús site, en ek al wie it mooglik om dy to forlizzen, dit wie tsjin de wordpress.org rjochtlinen.

Dit is in paadwizer, dat wy kinne net akseptearje, wy leauwe dat wy fertsjinje kredyt foar ús wurk. Net minder as twitter, facebook, of in oar bekend bedriuw bieden tredde partij Widgets út dêr.

Wy ek kinne net akseptearje it feit dat ús plugin sil fuortsmiten wurde sûnder notice, en sûnder tiid te meitsje feroarings, rjocht út 'e blauwe.

Wy kinne net akseptearje dat berjochten dat wy post op de plugin foarum sil wurde fuorthelle krekt om't de Masters net like se, of beslute dat se tsjin regels dat se hawwe makke harsels. Regels se net wolle heroverwegen.

Se binne frij om in beslút se like, einsluten, syn harren hosting en harren regels. Kin net negearje dat, Lokkich genôch wy net hawwe te akseptearje se.

As jo ​​wolle kleie, net kleie hjir, besykje en kleie op it foarum, mar myn gis is dat jo wurde bewurke, wordpress.org is gjin demokrasy, noch is it in GPL compliant site, alles der moat frij, yn kosten, en in rede, dat is de reden dat jo krige ton kreupel plugins dy't allinne tsjinje as promoasje foar in pro ferzje. Dat is ek wat se suggerearre dat wy dogge mei Tillefoankaarten. En wy net like it, net ien bit.

As in folgjende ferzje sil ea wurde oanbean oan dat side, It sil in kreupel ferzje, (sûnder keppelings hjir, jawis) en net de meast brûkber ferzje. De lêste ferzje (net kreupel) wurdt tsjinne rjocht hjir op 'e download side. Om dat wy sille no moatte foegjen in fernijing meganisme.

Fiel dy frij om bepraten dat yn de opmerkingen hjir.

Sa lang wordpress.org, en tank foar alle fisken.

    Well, I hope you are able to keep it running.

    Maybe you can start a campaign to tell WordPress we all are not so happy. I started using WP mainly because of your plugin.. it’s a huge advantage for SEO & links on Google. I’ve been a webmaster for 17 yrs and to get me to stop using Dreamweaver & switch to WP.. it was because of Transposh. 🙂

      Thanks for the kind words, you can take this to the wordpress forums, and let the moderators know, but I don’t believe this will help much.

      I guess the non wordpress solution will be coming up much faster now.

    Well this is really bad news. I didn’t think the WordPress team treated plugin developers like this. They need to reconsider their actions. Like you said, the link can be removed and that could be done for a long time now. What is the problem? Your points are more than valid and I have used your plugin on a lot of my sites, which has brought me a lot of extra traffic as well as increased the sites footprint in Google. I back you guys in this.

  3. Child Themer seit

    Well that is just horrible. I don’t get what the big deal is. I’m glad you are still offering the plug in as I use it on a few websites.

    WordPress is terrible,the only thing that make wordpress good is the community of developer like you guy’s,who put a lot of effort for no money and very little recognition.You guy did terrific job with this plugin and hope you will continue to do so even after that.Best of luck

      An interesting idea, but I thing we are quite able to handle google without wordpress.org patronization, and alsoit is allowed to have a link on your widgets, ask facebook, twitter, sharethis(quickest page to rank 10), and many others

  5. Ana Kelly seit

    I am so sorry to hear I have been using your plugin for years not and I love it….
    I hope you keep maintaining it.

    Thanks again

  6. seit

    For the record, you’re perfectly well allowed to have the link in your widget. The rules on WordPress.org only state that the link must be an opt-in link, not an opt-out one.

    You’re welcome to have your plugin on WordPress.org when you decide that you want to abide by that particular rule.

    • seit

      I am ok with the situation as it is now. I did use to have aproudly powered by wordpresson my pages, which accidentally comes with the theme I have installed (and I think the default themes has it too, not opt-in). This is no longer the case, because I am much less proud of that.

      If this rule will be reconsidered (you can read a few users comments here, about expecting this, being ok with this, singling out, ensfh) I will reconsider.

      I also strongly believe that closing a plugin with something that has been there for 4 jier, which is not a gaping security hole is the wrong action. Only a month ago I was a bit offline, and would probably have not been able to handle this for a good while. I do suggest that you take your time to reconsider said policy (give a notice, some reasonable timeframe, whatever). This was never such a critical issue, that required the use of such force.

      However, thanks for your willingness, and your time, hope we’ll meet in the future on better terms.

    thanks Otto to be there and clarify
    Ofer that good news We love your(our) plugin
    Transposh must be alive

    Hoi, I just wanted to say thank you very much for transposh plugin, it’s an excellent tool, I have downloaded it from your site, and I am proudly displaying your link.

    I can’t understand why you have been singled out, as many plugins have links to their site from them, there is nothing wrong with this as it is a free plugin, so you should at least get a link from it.

    Hoi

    Thanks for your workI really enjoy your plugin, and I hope you will be back on WordPress soon. In the meantime, how do I update to the full version? (I need other widgets than the default) Should I uninstall the WP plugin, and download+install the plugin from your download section? Or will that erase all of my current translations?

    Bêst,
    Niels

    • seit

      Hoi,

      This will not erase your translations, the way you suggested will work. There is another way though
      1. Upgrade from wordpress.org to version 0.9.3
      2. Go to the settings and checkupgrade to the full version
      3. Check for upgrades again (you might have to force this)
      4. Upgrade to the full version (currently 0.9.3.1)

      Good luck

  10. seit

    I accidentally upgraded to 0.9.3 via wordpress repository, but now missing flags. So uninstalled and downloaded version from your site. Plugin will not installed, it says no valid plugins found. Now I am missing your translation tool from our site.
    Please help….

        Hoi, thanks for your reply. When I checked back at your download page I saw the 0.9.3.1 link. I had to delete the files from 0.9.3 and then install 0.9.3.1. It is working fine now, with flags restored. Thank you so much, and I am sorry for the situation with WordPress.

        Our website spreads the Word of God around the world, and I want you to know that your translation engine is integral to souls being saved.

        God Bless you!

    wordpress can’t be an multi language cms without transposh! there are many translation plugins for wordpress but all of them are useless 😀 I’m so happy for using transposh and helping for persian language support. 🙂

    Hey Ofer, its you know who 🙂

    Just to let you know that my issue was fixed when I reuploaded the fixed version you put on the server back then, not sure how or why, but it fixed it.

    Now I see what you meant by your plugin being removed from WordPress, really sad, I really think both parties should settle and meet half way on this misunderstanding, for everyone’s sake.

    I just upgraded to the latest version, so far so good, will monitor the stats and traffic hoping the previous issue wont resurface.

    Thank you for keeping Transposh alive.

  13. seit

    Hi Ofer
    Thank you very much for the Transposh plug-in. The WordPress rule is not fair. I’m totally on your side. Upgraded to the full version and proudly displaytranslated by Transposhlink.
    Your plug-in is the most convenient to use.

  14. seit

    is the plugin still working on word press website’s who already installed the plugin, you may could provide a download link from an un official repo…?!

    • seit

      The download on the wordpress repository leads here, you can check the download full version, and do an upgrade, alternatively you may visit the download page here.

      Good luck

  15. Marco seit

    I agree. WordPress Staffers, as far as i’ve realized, are really doing a very bad job.
    They delete your forum replies just because they want to be the ‘Firstto reply or decide that your answers aren’t complete (i could give you 2 names, but i’d prefer not) and want to offer their personal paid services by linking to their professional profiles (yes..). This is the only black side of WordPress, and hope this will be changed..

  16. seit

    Know what you mean about broken plugins promoting pro versions. One kindly word for itpathetic.

    Will favorite your site. Will keep track. Fantastic Translator.

    After your translator all the rest aren’t even 2nd best.

  17. seit

    The amount of work that you guys have put into this plug-in is astounding.

    I do work for non-profit healthcare organizations and I cannot tell you how much your plug-in has helped us communicate with our hispanic population.

    Just to go in and add our own translations is fantastic.

    Bravo my friendsit’s just too bad how WP has made it difficult for you to promote yourself.

    I will be recommending you, jawis. Word of mouth is sometimes the best promotion.

  18. Bogdan Storm seit

    Please don’t leave this field and keep Transposh alive.
    If you want we can talk about making it profitable and I will help you with ideas regarding that.
    You don’t need WordPress website to promote your work.
    Keep optimism UP and let us help you.
    Thanks for outstanding work and making your plugin one of the best I’ve seen sinceever.

    Hey, I LOVE your comments on the WP.org site where your plugin got a one star rating. Your passion for what you do is reflected in these comments. Kepp @ it.

    A New Fan 🙂

  20. seit

    The mods at wordpress should really reconsider this travesty of reasoning. As you point outEVERY share button is a link to another’s site. The facebook plugins define suchHOW DARE YOU TRY TO UNITE THE WORLD OUTSIDE OF GOOGLE TRANSLATING EVERYPAGE!!!

  21. seit

    Guyswonderful job!” I love your plugin and I love your attitude for standing up to what is right!
    Wordpress would not be wordpress without awesome plugins like yours. Like you said Facebook, Linked In, Twitter, Googlethey all get to keep link back why not you?
    I am 100% behind you, I display your plugin and I display your link! Credit deserves to be given where credit is due. You were nice enough to let so many people use your plugin and you deserve every bit for it! It’s amazes me that the people at wordpress can’t appreciate the hard work that goes into something like this. You would think of all the people, they would understand that most. After all, WordPress is benefiting from your work, all the WordPress users are benefiting from your work, sa…why shouldn’t you? I will proudly keep your plugin on my site with the link back! And I will tell all my students to do the same. You are more deserving. Long live democracy!!!! 🙂

    • Mandy seit

      Totally agree with all you say, The Bee! I love Transposh’s attitude tooand I definitely love this brilliant plugin which I’ve only just installed and it works beautifully!

      Btw, Tillefoankaarten, I couldn’t see any donation paypal button anywhere?? I think you need one 🙂and thanks so much for this beautiful plugin!

  22. ali najeb seit

    thats unfair. this plugin was the best for me am gnna keep using it anyway u guys dont need wordpress, and u right they should appreiate ur work with them and warn u before they do that, thats really bad

  23. seit

    Well this sucks. I really like this plug-in! For a company looking to expand into Latin America, Transposh became a very important part of the plan. I would gladly pay for it!

    Very disappointing, WordPress!!!
