The Donation Indicator shows if the expenses have been covered (purely the costs for subscriptions). When 100% is reached, we will consider adding more themes and plugins from the wishlist.October 3, 2015 at 3:36 pm in reply to: Informative article regarding gpldl and similar sites #16350
Thanks guys for sharing this!October 3, 2015 at 3:32 pm in reply to: How to update new version of a plugin? #16349
1. Log in with FTP to your server, 2. rename the folder of the old plugin version, 3. upload the folder with the unzipped new version of the plugin, 4. delete the renamed folder of the old plugin version.
Sorry guys, no plans on adding EDD anytime soon.September 26, 2015 at 3:26 pm in reply to: Finesse ..? #16332
Finesse is a Themeforest item with a split license – not 100% GPL. We will not provide it here.September 26, 2015 at 3:22 pm in reply to: SUPERSTORE UPDATE PLEASE! #16331

Thanks for the notification, Martin. We’ve updates WooCommerce Variation Swatches and Photos to 1.6.9.September 5, 2015 at 3:57 pm in reply to: why does Smush say it'pro 2 #16293
Thanks for getting in touch. WPMU DEV Smush Pro is the most recent version from the WPMU DEV Premium Plugins directory. Since it appears to be limiting the number of images that can be compressed and keeps asking for an upgrade, it is now a SAAS-plugin that does not add “premium features”, so it is useless for people who do not have a WPMU DEV membership. We will therefore remove it from the repository.August 31, 2015 at 5:36 pm in reply to: Divi Style Templates #16276
No prob! Good to hear that the “test-drive” prevented you from buying the wrong product!August 30, 2015 at 1:02 pm in reply to: Submit Form #16273
On the list! Thanks for your suggestion!August 30, 2015 at 1:02 pm in reply to: Divi Style Templates #16272
What exactly do you mean by “DIVI style templates”? Everything that is released by Elegant Themes and related to the Divi WordPress Theme is included in the .zip-file that you can find in the repository.August 26, 2015 at 5:34 pm in reply to: BackupBuddy? #16262
Great Dave! BackupBuddy is an awesome plugin and we recommend anybody who can afford to buy a license to get one and support the developers.August 23, 2015 at 6:14 am in reply to: Loving GPLDL but… #16245
Kate, thanks again for sharing this very insightful analysis. Your thoughts are very much appreciated!
We agree with a lot of points you have raised here. Indeed it is not the easiest thing to strike a balance between the ethos not to charge for downloads and receiving donations to grow GPLDL.
We have had a lot of discussions in our team about how to organize memberships.
We are crystal clear that the mission of GPLDL is to make free software free for everyone. This especially includes people who neither have the financial means to buy directly from the developers nor are able to make a donation. With this particular group of people in mind, we cannot imagine to charge our users (in general) and therefore hope that those who can afford to give something back will also cover the expenses for those who cannot.
We also will keep donations completely voluntary and reject the idea of “forced donations”- or “donate and reward”-models. We believe that this is not a true, genuine donation but a “hidden membership fee”.
Instead we would love to hear from our users who need more downloads or additional services to manually increase their download limits or improve and extend GPLDL’s services in other ways. We are curious to learn about their particular needs and see how we can add additional value for them.
Since we have just started out – actually we are still beta! -, we are very excited to see that a lot of users have registered and are enjoying GPLDL and we are grateful to those who instantly made donations.August 20, 2015 at 2:33 am in reply to: Loving GPLDL but… #16238
Dave, you are right. It is against the ethos to charge for downloads at all and we do believe that we add value to our users and donations will allow us to keep the site going. Having a “forced donation” when someone reaches a certain limit is something we do not like.
Since 99% of our users do not reach the technical download limit anyway, we decided to leave it how it is for now and those who do reach the limit can contact us and let us know. We have means to extend the limit individually.August 20, 2015 at 2:21 am in reply to: Bread Crumbs #16237
Thanks Dave for your Feedback. We need to address this!August 20, 2015 at 2:19 am in reply to: BackupBuddy? #16236
Glad you found it Dave and I recommend to update your year old version for Security Reasons!August 20, 2015 at 2:17 am in reply to: Gravity Forms #16235
Saul, it is right there in the Premium WordPress Plugins Repository named “Rocket Genius Gravity Forms WordPress Plugin”.August 17, 2015 at 5:18 pm in reply to: Please Add WP Rocket, It´s GPL Licensed #16226
I double-checked with them: The API Key is implemented in the download and the code specifically for every user and the first time you run the plugin, it phones home to activate.August 17, 2015 at 4:09 pm in reply to: Loving GPLDL but… #16223
Ed, if someone makes a generous donation and has hit his monthly download limit, we will extend the limit manually.August 17, 2015 at 4:07 pm in reply to: Donate via PayPal #16222
Tommy, we will consider additional options to collect donations in the future.August 17, 2015 at 4:06 pm in reply to: Please Add WP Rocket, It´s GPL Licensed #16221
Thanks for your request. As far as I understand the concept, WP Rocket is at least partly a SAAS solution. The FAQ says that one of their bots needs to visit your site to activate the cached site and that you need a license for all domains you are using. If you do not have a license key WP Rocket will not work, so it does not make sense to add it to the repository…August 6, 2015 at 5:08 pm in reply to: Woocommerce extension plugin which is can do email verification #16199
Azlan, if I got it right, you are looking for something like this free Email verification plugin for WooCommerce: https://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-email-validation/August 3, 2015 at 2:08 pm in reply to: Loving GPLDL but… #16178
Kate, we have introduced a new user level and increased your download limit. Please try and let us know if you have any issues. Once this is tested we may roll it out to other users as well.August 3, 2015 at 4:05 am in reply to: Loving GPLDL but… #16175
Kate & Azlan: First of all: Thanks for your kind words and support for GPLDL. This is highly appreciated! I totally get your point regarding the 100 files/month limit. We will come up with a solution for users who need more than this asap.July 30, 2015 at 1:04 pm in reply to: WPMUDEV Pro Sites #16170
Thanks for this info. The problem existed with some plugins but is now fixed.

Frank, thanks for the kind words. Is Cart66 Pro fully licensed under GPL?
