Why You Should Not Modify the Plugin Code Directly
Whatever change you would like to make to WP RSS Aggregator or any of its add-ons, please do not modify the plugin code directly.
What we mean by this, is that if you want to make changes, customizations or any other improvement to the plugin, you need to find a way to do that without touching the plugin's original code directly.
Here are a few reasons.
- When we release an update for the plugin you modified directly, and you process that update, your changes will be lost, for good (unless you have a backup somewhere).
- When you modify any of the plugin code directly, we cannot know what impact that will have on the plugin or your WordPress site in general, so if any issues crop up, we cannot help you solve them.
- Your premium support is voided if issues occur after making direct changes to the plugin. Unless you revert to the plugin to its original state and then reproduce the issue, we can never guarantee that the change did not cause the issue, and that goes outside the scope of our support.
- It is bad practice. Find a better way through a new plugin just for modifications, or by asking a developer to help you out.
