WPMU DEV Legacy Plugins

In 2019, we retired over 100 of our WordPress plugins as part of steering the company in a new and exciting direction. Although they are no longer actively supported, you can still download them for free on GitHub:

Why did we retire these plugins?

High cost of development + more value for members

Maintaining 100+ plugins is a lot of work and a considerable amount of development time goes into adding new features and keeping plugins up to date, bug-free, and compatible with the latest version of WordPress.

The plugins we retired simply didn’t have enough users to justify ongoing development time. Retiring these plugins allowed more resources to be shifted to innovation, and to building products and services that provide greater value to members.

High cost of support time

While there were users who continued to use these plugins, usage levels didn’t justify the level of support we provided for them.

Do the plugins still work?

Yes. The retirement of these plugins from WPMU DEV doesn’t stop them from working on your websites. Any plugin you download from WPMU DEV is covered under the GPL, which means it’s yours to keep for life.

That’s also why we opened them up publicly on GitHub, so anyone who wanted to further their development could easily do so and share with others. You can find all retired products here: https://github.com/wpmudev

Can I still get support for these plugins?

No. We no longer support these plugins.

Can I still download these plugins?

You can download the latest versions, including any community updates, here:

https://github.com/wpmudev

They are not available for download on WPMU DEV.
