I have to upgrade again? :-(

Hi there,

Two weeks ago I initiated this post: https://premium.wpmudev.org/forums/topic/where-is-the-control-post-voting-settings-panel because a plugin did not show in the right way in the admin panel.

I had to upgrade from the 3.01 to the 3.1 version and that caused my site to crash, two days offline and literally dozens of emails back and forward with my hosting company. Finally they went into the code and fixed the site, without collecting a penny

Today I wanted to build a blog directory with this plugin and tit does not show in the admin panel. The version 3.1.3 is released and my site two week old site is too old!

Should I keep myself updating my site (with the terror history included) in order to be able to use the plugins I paid for?

Behind a multisite blog there is most of the times a company which can not risk two days offline. I am building my company at the moment and I would like to add several of your features, but in this way I have to think in the priorities.

I am not a programmer, for me is irrelevant which version I am using as long as my business keep running. I just want to make business.

It is just a recommendation.

    Hi severus,

    You definitely shouldn’t need to upgrade. I believe you may just need to take a look at your settings page at Network Admin > Settings > Settings where you’ll see the options that Blogs Directory provides.

    Could you take a look at that to see if that’s what you’re looking for? More on that can be found in the installation page.

    Hi severus,

    Regarding the update not being required, I was actually referring to this particular plugin. The Post Voting plugin’s actually brand new, whereas the Blogs Directory plugin has been around for a moment and there’s past versions available that you may find usable on older versions of WordPress.


    WordPress itself is constantly going through advancements that render older versions of plugins unusable. It’s ultimately for good reason, though that would be the explanation of plugins such as Post Voting not working with older versions of WordPress.

    That said, thanks for your feedback on this and your other thread.
