Plugin Cost Nonsense? Is This WordPress Life?
no experience with wordpress or bbpress but it looked great so i installed it… next up was an attempt to “import” my phpbb data to bbpress using the dashboard import tool but, sadly, a phpbb install plugin was not among those listed in the dashboard so i had to search the plugins directory… not knowing which one was best, i blindly chose the “CMS2CMS: phpBB to bbPress Forum Convertor” and began the migration process.. well surprise, surprise, shortly after the program began the migration a popup window reared its ugly head asking for $38 in order to complete a full migration… what the f is that all about? so is the wordpress life? wordpress plugin life? plugins are listed with no indication that they cost x amount of dollars until after you install the thing and try to use it? what sort of nonsense is that? how does this practice fly with wordpress? it’s enough to send a prospective wordpress user running in the direction of other alternatives, good grief…
