Inside the Castle:


by Amélie Walker-Yung

Recently, I caught some bugs. Not real bugs—well, maybe I also caught a few fruit flies that found their way in with the produce—but software bugs. These were in two different WordPress plugins and apparently had not been discovered by other users or the developers. One was a paid plugin, the other free, and I am happy to report in both cases, the bugs were squashed.

Bugs in plugins are not highly unusual. Sometimes an update will cause a problem, many users report it, and the developer quickly fixes the issue and releases a new version.

So, this is part of what Castle Builder does. In the course of our working on a WordPress website, installing and configuring plugins for our client’s needs, we are also playing bugcatcher.
