I've found a great plugin for WordPress under GPLv2 license and made a lot of changes in source code, plugin does something else now. I modified author with original plugin author's credits , URL, version number from xxx 1. My changed plugin YYY 1. In the plugin file, there will be a function that will check for updates. The original author could have named this anything, so you will have to go through the code and check each function and what it does. I would imagine the function will be quite obvious as to what it does.
Thank for sharing! Worked well. If I wanted to do this for multiple plugins, what is the best way to handle that? Great tip! So I had to add this hook to avoid oficial plugin updates. Not the ideal approach but it will solve the problem and avoid future problems. Thanks very much.
