Free forever but you cannot update
Trying to update Stackable, a plugin I installed to get an expanding box of links (and then had a problem with), gives me an unusual response:
New Version Available
“There is a new version of Stackable – Gutenberg Blocks available. Buy a license now to access version 3.1.5 security & feature updates, and support.”
this happens on attempting to check the update box! Other folks are having this issue too.
In my view, breaking update workflow with a modal dialog which unchecks the update — a security update! — is a pretty big sin.
