- Step 1: Release a simple plugin that just works.
- Step 2: Continue to check that it still “just works” every few months, just in case
- Step 3: After a couple of years, get overconfident and go on a big holiday
- Step 4: Come back to find that of course the plugin is now broken
Ah, the life of a plugin developer. If you’re one of the WooCommerce Automatic Category Thumnails users that was affected by the recent WooCommerce update, please accept my apologies. A compatibility fix has been pushed out today and you should see a prompt to upgrade in your WordPress admin panel any time now.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to email in and let me know there was an issue, it’s much appreciated!
