WordPress 3.6 is right around the corner. The planned released date is 20th May and we are trying to stay ahead of the game by preparing CSV 2 POST now. We have made a lot of big changes to our plugin, including adding support for the new Post Formats feature coming in WP 3.6. We are confident that we are ready and that the plugin works great in this new version. However we would like to be sure.
Beta Tester 50% Discount – May Only
We are offering all of our packages half-price during May, with a limit on the number of times our voucher code can be used. The voucher code is “WP3.6“, that is without the quotes. You can enter it during checkout, before arriving at Paypal.
The code can be used 10 times. The idea is to have just enough beta testers to help us ensure the plugin is ready but not so much that we cannot work with each buyer individually. We are confident our own testing shows things will go smoothly when WP 3.6 is released but further feedback from new users is essential as always and benefits our existing users. Users of the discount code accept that they will be using our latest build of CSV 2 POST which is version 6.9.6. It is designed to work with WordPress 3.6 only to enforce beta testing. That is only fair to recent buyers or anyone purchasing the plugin to use straight away on the current WP version.
Why New Users?
I just wanted to mention our need for new users rather than simply working with the feedback we are getting from current users who beta test for us.
New users make mistakes for one. They don’t have habits with the plugin that existing users may have. Some habits may lead to the avoidance of using certain features or using features in a certain way. A new user is likely to try a bit of everything. This also helps to ensure people are installing CSV 2 POST for the first time. This is important and we cannot know for sure if existing users are always installing the plugin on a fresh blog every-time we release a version.
The nature of the changes in CSV 2 POST 6.9.6 an the fact they come in-line with a new WordPress version brings more urgency to our testing than normal. In honest we hope to get 2-3 good best testers from this offer and enough feedback to deliver a much improved plugin by end of May.
Existing Testers Free Hosting Offer
Existing feedback from current testers has been great and without it we would be very stuck. Testing on a plugin of this size and complexity takes a lot of time, it is always appreciated. That is why we are offering free hosting to anyone providing feedback and reporting bugs. The length of the hosting will depend on the time spent working with us but will always start at 1 year. This sort of offer and approach will be in use a lot as we release more plugins in future so keep it in mind if you want to skip paying for hosting bills.
An offer like this will not happen again until end of December so be assured that it is value for money and is being controlled so that recent buyers are treated fairly.
