Re: Redirect Pro

Well, thanks for posting it. In its state is quite un-usable, but more so, the help section suggests to seek for help on Zem’s site, which I guess could be a problem for him and even a source of irritation. Maybe it is better to take the file down or, at least, edit the Help part by omitting the reference to Threshold State, so Zem won’t have to deal with lost users?

Re: Redirect Pro

His website clearly states that new subscriptions are currently unavailable (I can’t see how this could confuse visitors). If this becomes a problem for him, it’s up to Alex to respond to that in any way he chooses, for example by releasing a version 1.3 that does not contain a reference to his website to get help.

Looking at the plugin code, it seems that very little (if any) configuration is needed apart from installing and activating the plugin.

I assume the included help (not the documentation on Alex’s website!), however small it may be, is also covered by GPL, so if there’s a notice included that changes were made to it, one could fill the plugin help with useful information. This would have to be done by someone who does not have access to the documentation on Alex’s website. Instead that person would have to look at the plugin code, grok it, and write documentation based solely on that knowledge.

It wouldn’t confuse me but, you know, there could be some people out there who might be tempted to fire a mail to Zem anyway, and by “some” I mean “a shitload of” and by “people” I mean “clueless noobs”. :)))

If I can help in some way with the documentation, I’d gladly help.

Re: Redirect Pro

Well, here’s the plug-in with a slightly edited help section:

zem_redirect_v1.2.1.txt

Hope my English makes sense. :)))

Re: Redirect Pro

Um… can you output that as zem_tpl does, with version number, description and wrapped lines at 72 characters?

You English makes sense :)
I’d use the http://thresholdstate.com/subscribers/ URL as the original plugin does instead of pointing to http://thresholdstate.com/.

Re: Redirect Pro

Edit: removed, on second thought I’m not sure about this.
