Food for thought pertaining to plugin modifications. Developers Please give your thoughts!
It's cool you modified the plugin and added value. I was just mulling some things over in my mind.
In this example I believe less than 10 lines of code are different from the original. wouldn't you want to give the original author credit via authorname as well as plugin name.
Which leads to did the original author abandon the plugin?
What is the correct "Forum etiquette" revolving around this (taking op code and making a few code changes, but essentially keeping the same plugin as the original designer had coded it).?
If it isn't abandoned should you just post code changes or add a modified zip in a discussion or fork it into your own github.
My comments are not to stifle innovation or enhancements, just "What is the right thing to do?"
Developers, and others please weigh in.
I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
