How Do You Plugin/Theme Developers Make Money?

I just read a recent post on Vladimir Prelovac’s blog titled “The Future of Free“, and I totally agree with this. My question is, without putting a price on my WordPress plugins, how do I make people appreciate all the work I’ve put into them? I think the WordPress community is too used to getting things for free. You can download and install tons of plugins/themes completely free of charge. Here are some questions for you on this topic (along with my own personal answers):

How to Troubleshoot WP Minify

WP Minify is supposed to work out of the box for many cases. That being said, there will always be plugins that conflict with WP Minify because of the nature of this plugin. In this post, I will show you how to troubleshoot these issues for yourself before you have to hit the plugin support forum.

How does WP Minify Work?

When activated, the plugin does the following:

  1. WP Minify intercepts theme rendering at the get_header WordPress hook and puts everything that is echoed/outputted from the PHP code into an output buffer.
  2. WP Minify then intercepts theme rendering again at the get_footer WordPress hook to stop the output buffer.
  3. The plugin then evaluates the page content to extract all JavaScripts and stylesheets out.
  4. The minified version of these JavaScripts and stylesheets are then re-injected into the content.
  5. The page content is echoed/outputted as normal.

Plugin Support Forum is Up!

Today I would like to announce the launch of the OMNINOGGIN plugin support forum.  From now on, I would like all support questions regarding all of my WordPress plugins to go through the appropriate categories in the support forum.  Here are my reasons for the shift:

  • Intense Debate comments are not searchable by the end user.  It’s also hard to navigate the comments to find what you are looking for.  Because of that, people end up asking the same questions.
  • Support plugins is starting to become a monumental task for me.  I’m hoping that having a forum will encourage 3rd party paticipation to help reduce some of my time spent on plugin support.  That way I can have some time to actually develop the plugins.
  • I need the ability to separate which support requests are important and which ones are not as important.  To do that, I have created a set of free support forums and a set of premium support forums.  Free forums are for people who are using my plugins for personal/non-commercial purposes (and thus would not need urgent support).  Premium forums are for people who are using my plugins on blogs that are earning them money.
  • Some people were unhappy at my attempts to gain traffic from my plugins by displaying an OMNINOGGIN widget in the WordPress adminitration dashboard by default.  The premium support forums will help justify the 20-30 hours I spend each week on my plugins, so I will be disabling these widgets by default on all of my plugins.
