Articulate WordPress Plugin is no longer available in the WordPress Repository

As of March 28th, 2017, the trial version of the Insert or Embed Articulate Content into WordPress plugin is no longer available on the WordPress repository. It was removed due to the 3 upload limit that’s in the trial plugin. This limit has been in the plugin for over 6 years and the code that handles the upload limit has never changed in that time.

Why was my plugin flagged and removed suddenly after being apart of the Repo for 7 years? I do not know. I can certainly guess it has something to do with calling out a large theme developer for a bug that caused problems with my plugin. You can read about that bug here: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/40285 – Approximately a few hours after reporting that bug, my plugin was reported as a violation. Coincidence? Possibly. I sincerely hope that the good people that created the theme at http://www.getmotopress.com didn’t report my plugin as retaliation. The goal of reporting the bug was to prevent people from being completely locked out of their WordPress site like one of my customers did. I spent half a day fixing the issue in her theme and felt it was my obligation to report a bug that is hosted on WordPress’s theme directory.

What does this all mean to if you only have the trial plugin installed?

If you currently have the trial plugin installed and you haven’t upgraded to the premium plugin, you will still be able to use the trial from the WordPress repo. It’s already installed on your site and nothing can change that. However, you will no longer receive bug fixes or updates. I’m currently working with my developers so that we can host the trial plugin from my site here. Once that is finished, you’ll be able to install the new version of the trial plugin and continue to receive the same free updates and features that premium users receive.

What does this all mean if you have both the trial and premium plugin installed?

This is where it gets a little tricky. If you purchased the premium plugin before March 10th, 2017, you will no longer receive free updates. All of the updates for the plugin were handled in the WordPress Repository. Since that link is now gone, you will no longer receive free updates.

To continue to receive free updates, you will need to install the new version of the plugin and activate a license. It’ll take a few days to get that up & running. In the meantime, contact me here so that I can send you a new copy of the premium plugin along with a license code to activate it. Please include your order number so that I can process this quicker for you.

If you purchased the premium plugin after March 10th, 2017, you’re good to go. Fortunately, the investments we recently made in the premium plugin make this transition super simple for you. You’ll automatically receive an update to the premium plugin that will resolve this issue. I’ll contact each of you personally with detailed instructions. Don’t worry, it’s super simple. Just a matter of deleting the trial plugin before installing the new version of the premium plugin.

What does the future look like for this plugin?

Super bright! The WordPress Repository is built on antiquated technology and has a set of guidelines that make their ecosystem difficult for not only developers, but also regular WordPress users like yourself. It’s no wonder that sites like CodeCanyon are flourishing and developers are choosing to host their own plugins & updates.

We’re working on features like Tin Can/xAPI tracking and also S3 uploads!

Can I still download and use the trial plugin?

Unfortunately, the people that suffer the most here are the ones that utilize the trial plugin and have no need to upload more than 3 content items. However, you will still be able to get the trial plugin. It’ll be available from this site instead of the Repository.

In the interest of being completely transparent, here’s the full email thread from my plugin review. I hope other WordPress plugin developers see this cautionary tale to avoid the WordPress Repo.

I don’t typically open up comments on this site, but I’m really curious to hear other people’s experiences with the WordPress review process. If you have questions about your purchase, please contact me here. Don’t use the comments.

How to increase maximum upload file size

The maximum upload file size is determined by your hosting provider, not a limit enforced by the WordPress plugin. To increase the limit, you need to update your php.ini file in your wp-admin folder to reflect the following:

post_max_size = 350M
max_execution_time = 360
max_input_time = 360
upload_max_filesize = 350M

(These settings will vary depending upon your server and content. You may need to contact your hosting company to make these changes.)

There’s also a WordPress plugin available that can help you make this change: https://wordpress.org/plugins/increase-upload-max-filesize/

If you’re using NGINX, you may need to update your nginx.conf file to reflect:

client_max_body_size 100m;

Also, if you’re running on WordPress Multi-site, you may need to make the following change if you’re running into issues:

Go to: Dashboard > Settings > Network Settings > Upload Settings > Max upload file size and make your adjustments there.

Finally, if you contact your hosting company, they may be able to do the following to resolve the issue:

To resolve the issue, we simply logged into our cPanel server, and under:

Software
EasyApache (Apache Update)
Customize Profile
Exhaustive Options List

Enable the “Zip” functions and build the new PHP profile.
