Just a quick reminder to everyone
I’ve been keen to fill the gallery to show off WP-United’s features to new users (there’s nothing better than seeing it in action on real sites). Up until now, I’ve been adding sites regardless of whether they link back to WP-United.com or not. In actual fact, the vast majority do — so I’m pretty happy.
However, there are a growing number of new sites which have dumped the included link from their footer, or haven’t linked to us at all. To be clear, this is your prerogative (provided the copyright statements in the PHP code remain completely intact) — however, links back to us are one of this site’s main lifelines. Without them, far fewer people would find the site — either directly or via Google.
Feel free to modify the link, or move it to a separate “credits” page. I understand some sites want to make it look like they are developed in-house, or believe in security through obfuscation, but in reality there’s really very little reason not to link back — some very large sites are doing so.
Also, a few people have kindly written about WP-United on their sites or blogs. Some have even written tutorials in their own languages. This is fantastic, something I love to see
The stick: eventually, when the gallery fills up, I’ll start being a bit stricter with who stays in there The carrot: The more people discover WP-United, the more incentive there will be to keep it developing rapidly.
Thanks to everyone who is already supporting WP-United — either by donating, linking, contributing code or translations, writing about us or recommending us to peers. It is much appreciated.
