This license covers the main software (Simple:Press – forum plugin for WordPress) as well as all plugins and themes we may make available for the main software. It also covers our Simple:Press Importer (WordPress plugin) and any code changes we may, from time to time, advise or offer users to make in between official releases.

The Semi-Official Bit:
As far as we are concerned, anyone can do anything they like with this WordPress plugin
software program. All we require is that:
1. This file, ‘License.txt’, is always distributed unchanged
2. The plugin header in the code file ‘sp-control.php’ also remains unchanged.
Other than those two stated requirements, feel free to use this plugin and change the
code of this plugin as you see fit.
We have done our very best to ensure this software is safe to use and as secure as
possible. However we take no responsibility for any problems that may occur or any data
that may be lost due to unforeseen vulnerabilities. We will, however, make every attempt
to fix bugs and supply updates and/or patches where required.
Anyone encountering serious security problems should, in the first instance, make
contact by email and not post to the support forum. Problems of this nature should not
be made public until a fix is available. For the benefit of all users, keeping such matters private even after a fix is made available is still the preferable and more responsible course of action.
Other than that, we hope this plugin meets a need and is able to enhance your WordPress
website in a positive way.
