Fact: GDE has been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times since its original release in 2009. Hundreds of people have participated in public betas of new versions. I’ve spent hundreds of hours in development and support of this plugin.
Fact: This plugin is completely 100% free and open source. This is your big opportunity to get something for nothing, without guilt. :) I consider it a small contribution back to the open source community for the many resources I rely upon daily (including WordPress itself).
Fact: If you find this plugin useful, rating it on the WordPress Plugin Repository is a quick and free way to encourage further development. At the time of this writing, far less than 100 people have ever done so. You can also email me directly with comments and suggestions. (My email address is in the GPL statement near the top of
gviewer.php.) These small actions can mean a lot to an independent developer, as so few take the time to give any feedback at all.
Fact: If you make money using this plugin, or otherwise feel inclined to make a donation, I’m a young married man with a small baby on the way and would hardly refuse you. :) Even a very small donation does a lot to encourage further development.
You can make a donation via PayPal here or make a contribution to a charity of your choice and send me a note about it. Thank you!
