Cookie Law Info has been around for 3 years and in that time it’s been downloaded nearly 250,000 times and is in use on over 100,000 websites. If you’d have told me that when I started writing it I wouldn’t have believed you! It’s grown so much in fact that it’s time to rebuild it from the bottom up.
Cookie Law Info 2.0
Here’s the plan. There will be three versions:
- A “new” Cookie Law Info: always free, always great support
- Cookie Law Info PRO: improved customisation options, advanced features and enhanced performance
- Developer Edition: same as the PRO edition but with unlimited licensing
These will share the same base code and the same admin UI. The difference is just in the advanced features and advanced performance options in the PRO version. Users of the free version still get the same great product and support, but if you upgrade to the PRO version you’ll get all the advanced options and you’ll be saying ‘thanks’ to the guy who spends well, quite a lot of his personal time bringing you an essential plugin for free – and I really appreciate your support there!
A complete re-write isn’t as easy as it sounds. Sure, the code is easy enough – I have a working beta version already which I’ve tested on several themes and it’s all fine so far. The challenge is that Cookie Law Info is used on over 100,000 sites – any upgrade MUST work first time. There’s no room for error here- it’s a really visible part of these websites and if it goes wrong then that is really bad for you, the website owner.
Good news: I’m not going to let that happen!
I need your help to test the new version, so I can be confident that when it goes out to the 100,000+ sites it will work. That’s what the beta programme is for, and where you can help.
How you can help (and a gift from me to you!)
Sign up for the beta programme today and be notified when it’s ready to test. I’ll send you a link to download the new ‘free’ version. You test it- let me know how you get on, and once it’s considered stable I’ll release it for the wider world on wordpress.org.
As a thank you, I’ll give 10 people a free PRO version (chosen at random) and everybody else 25% off the PRO version. All I ask in return is that you install it, test it and give me some feedback. To be in with a chance of winning a free PRO version, let me know your URL so I can see it working on your website. That’s all there is to it.
