    Never mind – it’s just not showing the update notification on my localhost version of my site. When I push it up to a live site I see the upgrade notification. Thanks! Michelle

    Hi Dimas, the previous issue with custom post types (admin UI) appears to be affecting the “feedback” section for Grunion Contact Form plug-in. Not sure if it affects the plug-in bundled with Jetpack.

    This plugin there a bugtracker? I met several bugs and I never got an answer by email?

    Is there support?

    How can i get the latest version?

  5. Katie

    I am new to all of this but I have to say that I love the Sidekick logo dog.

    Can I use it on unlimited wp installs? Or do I need to pay per install?


    Can you disable automatic updating of the plugin? I’m a but concerned about apps/scripts/plugins automatically doing things they think they should when infact the user/owner should decide if it can check for updates and update itself etc.

    is 0.6.1 the latest?

  8. SuperS

    So, if I use it for client wp installs, I need to pay for each client website it is used on?

    Hi Dimas,

    I just got an update notice for SideKick to v0.78, which when installed links to wpuniversity.com. What’s going on?

  10. Michelle

    Hi again, looks like WPUniversity came out with another version and I’m getting “update to 1.1″ notices for Sidekick. I have 0.600 installed and it was doing okay up until this latest update. I’ve tried refreshing a ton but it’s not helping. Ideas? thanks!

    In the new version 0.7 there is an error.

    /sidekick-by-wpalchemy/presshub_updater.php on line 43

    Keep up the good work! :)

  12. Stephan

    I came here to say exactly what Michelle has.

    I have v0.6.1.

  13. Michelle

    Got it, thanks Dimas!

  14. Stephan

    Found it! Thanks, Dimas!

  15. Luca

    Lots of errors with last v0.7

  16. Luca

    Ok it’s strange because before re-activating it I hade 3 more errors. I don’t remember exactly what they where. One of them I remember it complained it “could not connect with wordpress.org”

    Anyway, now, in every admin view, I’ve got this:

    Notice: Undefined variable: url in [...]/wp-content/plugins/sidekick-by-wpalchemy/presshub_updater.php on line 43


    I’m using v0.7 on WP 3.8.1 – clean install

  17. Michelle

    I’m getting the same error as Luca.
