Use with caution

Last revised:

Confidence: Medium
This plugin has been given a short, targeted code review.

Before using this plugin, you should carefully consider these findings. Read more about this recommendation.

Warnings

This recommendation applies to version 0.14.3 of this plugin, but the most recent version is 0.15.0. These findings may no longer be correct.

Findings

No issues were found from a basic inspection of the plugin code. As the functionality is intended for a publicly accessible website, it is difficult to test fully prior to live use. The plugin may require server-side configuration, for example to allow application/activity+json responses, so will need to be tested on the target infrastructure. The implementer should check what information is being broadcast, for example whether WordPress version is included in feeds.

While this is a Beta plugin, there could be better instructions for how to fully implement this on a WordPress site.

Reason for the 'Use with caution' result

The plugin has been given this recommendation at the tester's discretion:

The plugin is marked ‘BETA’ so should be used with caution on this basis until sufficiently established and tested.
