This post will help you understand the transition of the ownership and basic maintenance of Easy Demo Import from Fervent Solutions to Divi Community. If you’re already a DiviCom supporter and you’re looking for the download page, you can find it on the Supporter Bonus Assets page. (Note: If you don’t yet have a supporter rank, that link will take you to the support options page! 😊)
EDI documentation is available here for a limited time. Docs on EDI will be transferred to the DiviCom site as soon as possible.
@ferventjerry (the guru behind EDI) reached out to me a few weeks ago, as he’s decided to retire EDI. Since I was of some help to him during the early iterations of the plugin, he asked if it was something I would be interested in taking over.
So… I was absolutely “YAS!!” but with some conditions, as outlined below:
While this means that EDI will not immediately have long-term update goals as far as functionality, it will still be maintained as needed for security updates or as needed for existing functionality to meet requirements to keep it compatible based on updates from other sources.
There will no longer be any licensing requirements on the plugin. Access to a copy of the plugin will be based on good faith, but I’m certainly not going to try to track down anyone who shares a copy to someone who did not become a supporter of the new site. 😂
General support/usage EDI questions will become part of this specific room.
Many of you are subscribers to the Child Theme Workflow course offered by design wizardess Michelle Nunan. This includes a recommendation for using EDI as a child theme deployment management tool. We are working together to make sure the transition of ownership is as easy as possible, and we will keep you updated right here! 😀
